Looking for Bird Seed Cookie Recipe
OK, I know it's not made with bird seeds, but back in the early 60s, the cafeteria of the school I went to made these cookies that looked like they were made out of bird seeds. They were buttery, rich, and delicious. They did not taste like nuts, nor did they taste like oatmeal. No, they were not sesame seeds either. They were a combination of being tender, moist, chewy and crisp.
They were baked in a sheet and cut into squares.
Does this sound familiar to anybody? I have never seen this kind of cookie anywhere since then. I tried to find the recipe, but a trip back to the school left me empty handed. The new cafeteria manager didn't know what I was talking about. All the old ladies were gone. Nobody was left at the school who was there in the 60s.
