    Mrs.R's Note:

    As a kid, I spent countless hours picking dandelions and putting them in cups, leaving them on the kitchen counter as a surprise for my mom. Kids LOVE dandelions, after all, they are some of the only "flowers" they are allowed to pick whenever they will. I thought this sounded like a great project for kids, and can't wait to try these cookies at the first sight of these "flowers"! From what I've heard, these are NOT very sweet. Got this from Prep time does not include picking dandelions!

      They would be a fun thing to make with your kids, and my two year old did help to find and pick them. Neither he nor I were crazy about the taste though. Not that they were bad - just not comparable I guess to any kind of cookie with chocolate in it. I like my chocolate. I was thinking they might be better with some icing or frosting on top.

      Okay, here are my observations: These are fun, tasty, chewy, interesting, barely sweet cookies, but they're also not terribly attractive. The top comes out pale (the bottom and edges brown quickly), and when you break a cookie the inside looks sort of "hairy"--which is actually the fine little dandelion petals. I made them with whitewheat flour (whole grain) and a packed half-cup of dandelion petals. When you go to gather the flowers, make sure they have NOT been treated with herbicide or pesticide, and beware of bees! (Apparently they're fond of dandelions.) Removing the petals took a while and worked best if I tore each flower head in half and then scraped out the petals from the inside. I'll make these again because they're fun and different, but next time I might do some kind of fancy petal-arranging on the top of each cookie before I bake them. (And next time I'll use 3/4 cup honey!)

      An easy recipe (except maybe collecting and preparing the dandelion flowers), and VERY good! These cookies aren't sweet, but have a wonderful 'mapley' flavour. They freeze well, and are a unique treat to offer.
