This week, my spam folder was kind. No liver, for one thing. No prunes, for another. Instead, we get Sunflower Seed Cookies from South Dakota. Cookies are a good thing! Prune cookies are a bad thing. I’m guessing someone has made that recipe and… looks like I’m right. Spiced Prune Cookies. So not a good thing in my opinion. That’s one of those things that shouldn’t exist.
Anyway, back to this week’s recipe. This recipe was a bit odd to me, there’s no eggs. I always think of eggs as the glue that keeps a recipe together, and the lack of eggs was just weird.
I had to try it out, of course. I do love sunflower seeds. The recipe didn’t say what kind of sunflower seeds to use and by that I mean should I use roasted or unroasted? I went with roasted because, well, they’re my favorite. I also ate the leftover seeds, which made it just perfect.
Once I put everything in the pan, it looked like this:
It doesn’t need to eggs to be glued together, so that was nice. I took a picture of the pan in the oven. It came out slightly tilted because I was leaning over to take it:
And once I pulled them out of the oven, they looked like this:
The recipe said it would make 2-3 dozen cookies. I got 5 dozen cookies out. Good thing both Fred and I thought they were delicious! He said they reminded him of pecan sandies, only with sunflower seeds and coconut. Then he asked me if they were healthy. I just laughed at him.
