Anyway! Back to the cookies. They are obviously not called bird seed cookies, but that's what we called them, and since they are almost impossible to find in Denmark, I decided to make my own and have my husband blind-test them.
These are the originals:
This one is mine:
Success! Even if it is not as pretty, and I even picked the prettiest one for the photo. :p
I used a standard recipe for flat oatmeal cookies, added slightly more flour, and substituted 90% of the oatmeal with sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chopped almonds, and dried cranberries.
The original cookies have sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, oatmeal, hazelnuts, honey, raisins and condensed milk. Of course finding condensed milk in Denmark is almost as diffcult as finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
