Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies Recipe

I was so excited when I found this recipe for sunflower seed butter cookies!  My children attend a peanut free preschool, but they absolutely love peanut butter cookies and sandwiches.  I began giving them sunflower seed butter sandwiches for lunch, and they loved them! 

I began my search for cookie recipes with sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.  I kept experimenting until I came up with one I really liked.  The original recipe came from a Trader Joe's newsletter.  (Trader Joe's has the best sunflower seed butter so I hope there is one near you!)

Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies Recipe Ingredients

• 2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
• 3/4 cup butter brought to room temperature
• 3/4 cup cold sunflower seed butter
• 2 large eggs
• 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl. 

In a separate large mixing bowl, beat together butter, sunflower seed butter, sugar, and brown sugar until they have a fluffy consistency.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat until combined.

Gradually add in flour mixture making sure to combine well after each addition.  Wrap dough in plastic food wrap, and refrigerate for 3 hours.

Roll dough into tablespoon size balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Approximately 12 cookies will fit onto an average cookie sheet.

Dip the back of a spoon into flour and press into each cookie to make them somewhat flattened.  You may also use a fork to make a pattern on the top of the sunflower seed butter cookies.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.  You will want to watch the cookies closely and remove them from the oven when they look just a little underdone.  You do not want to burn the bottoms of these tasty treats.

Cool for 1 minute then place cookies on wax paper or a cooling rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!!
