Homemade Bird Cookies.
- 1 cup softened unsalted butter
- 3 beaten eggs
- 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
- 3 1/2 cups mixed birdseed
- Large bowl, rolling pin, drinking straw, various shaped cookie cutters, basting brush, cookie sheet, oven.
Let cool. Pour remaining birdseed into a bowl. Brush egg whites onto each side of cookies and press birdseed onto cookies. Place on cookie sheet until dry. Tie a ribbon or string through hole; hang birdseed cookies from tree limbs.
Since I live in Montana we've gotten real creative with our cookies and made moose and bear cookies. You could also make football, sports or holiday cookies.
Put your birdseed cookies in a nice tin or basket along with a birdhouse, feeder or note cards for a unique gift idea.
