What exactly is this thing?

Kurppon - Oven de Cookie

All Japanese Wikipedia says is:
Nationalの「クルッポンオーブン」の発売記念に500本ほど配られた非売品ソフト。SFC版ヨッシーのクッキーに「クッキング」というアドベンチャー風のゲームモードが追加されたもの。中古市場ではレア物として極めて高値で取引されており、50万円近くで売られている店もある。
Uh, so only 500 copies exist, and it's worth about 50,000 yen. So, is this more buttery than Rendering Ranger (if I'm remembering, RR was worth about $300 and about 1,000 copies exist)?
So, did you have to buy an oven or something to get the game, originally?

I noticed this because one Japanese exporter was asking $2500 for a complete copy. :O
(and a Yahoo Japan search turned up one loose cart for 30,000 yen, about $288)
(yes, a standard edition of Yoshi no Cookie SFC is only worth a few hundred yen)

I want to say it's a famitsu contest prize, but i don't really remember. Nicola knows more about it then i do. He's done a lot of research on those low print run famicom carts.

WTF? Yet another extreme rarity that I am dumbfounded I didn't know about. I wonder why I've never seen this brought up before.

Not quite - it has yoshi's cookie on it and a Kuruppon de oven mode/game where you bake cookies with yoshi and get recipes.
The title screen has yoshi walking past what looks like an easybake and you can choose which game you want to play.
It's been dumped

Better luck searching with "Kuruppon" instead of "Kurppon"
