Is This Sunflower Seed Cookie Recipe Better Than Trader Joe's Soft-Baked Sunflower Butter Cookies? by Donna John
On my last trip to Trader Joe's, I saw their new Soft-baked Sunflower Butter Cookies. Say, what? While I'm sure they are delicious, I have been making (and obsessed with) my sunflower seed cookie recipe for a long time now. And mine are rolled in sunflower seeds before baking. I'm calling a win here (or at least a tie).
These sunflower seed cookies are a great way to break out of the chocolate chip cookie rut. You may never look at cookies the same way. This is one easy dessert recipe you will turn to again and again! Sorry, Trader Joe's.
