Sunflower Seed Cookies

sunflower seed cookie recipeAround the ol’ Interwebs, you will be seeing a lot of pie recipes today, it is #PieDay afterall. I like pie. A lot. I love the idea of the food community coming together to celebrate the ultimate baked good (in my humble opinion, of course). But I just didn’t have it together to make one and get it posted in time. I have no good excuse other than I just cannot get into my groove in the kitchen right now. I am not sure what the deal is, but I think that it may have something to do with the beach calling my name. In a few days, I know that I will be itching to cook or bake something, have no fear, you will be seeing new recipes here (thankfully, I banked a few before we left Kansas). But for now, I am going to enjoy the first day of summer. Today, the beach is calling. Happy Summer Solstice.

I have a whole board of pies if you are looking for one to make today. Just in case.

I picked up a bag of sunflower seed cookies at the grocery store and immediately was obsessed. I had to get them out of the house, because I would have eaten the whole bag. The only thing that I did not like about these cookies was the price tag. Crazy expensive. I found this post about being a food blogger and had to chuckle. I immediately ate these cookies and thought to myself, I can make these better and cheaper (#5 on Irvin’s list). And you know what? I did. These are even better than the cookies that I bought in the store. These are equally addicting. Crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. They have whole grains and sunflower seeds, so they are totally a health food, right?

So excited to try these. I just discovered Grace's Best recently, but I had the thought that some talented person had to have shared a similar recipe that might cost a little less $$$! Thanks for sharing this with us!

I am making them now and my dough seems a bit drier than yours looks. I followed your recipe exactly but did add dried cranberries. It didn't even stick to the mixing bowl. What should I add?

It is a pretty dry dough, but you probably threw the ratio off by adding cranberries.
