Bird Cookies


We did it! We made a messy, seasonally appropriate craft, and mommy didn't lose her cool. Self-congratulatory pat on the back here. And for all you peanut allergies out there who have been saddened by the fact that you cannot make bird cookies or the traditional pinecone-peanut butter-birdseed version, they make Sunbutter now. It is made from sunflower seeds, and it actually tastes amazingly like peanut butter. I like it anyway, and it makes a nice sandwich with jelly. So, what you see before you are Sunbutter-bagel-birdseed Bird Cookies.

We've seen several squirrels swooning with joy from the unexpected bounty, but we have seen nary a bird taking a nibble at our cookies. Where the heck have all the pigeons and white wing dove gone? It's usually like an Alfred Hitchcock movie around here.

  2. BAGELS!!!!

    Ok, you get my creative genius of the day award -- I'm running out to buy bagels tomorrow -- the snows hit us faster than we could collect pinecones this year, and I've been absolutely stuck trying to decide how to make a hangeable bird treat without melting suet down.

    YOU ROCK!!!!
