Vintage popcorn macaroon recipe

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers, and postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


Popcorn makes me think of going to the movies, or having a group of friends over to watch a DVD.  With summer vacation close at hand, this little recipe can be a nice treat for those movie get togethers.  Your guests and your family will appreciate the special attention.

Have fun,

Popcorn Macaroon Recipe
1 cup blanched almonds

1/2 tsp. vanilla extracts
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup freshly popped corn
Few grains salt
