Raisin-Sunflower Seed-Vanilla-Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

This recipe makes for crunchy little morsels with a distinct vanilla taste. Originally the recipe called for hazelnuts, but I cant have those, so I changed it to roasted, caramelized sunflower seeds. Feel free to use nuts or seeds of your choice, though.

I wish I could have found powdered vanilla but 1 teaspoon of extract worked just fine. I also couldn't find caramelized sunflower seeds so I found a recipe and posted it - Recipe #468927. These are good cookies! I would even double the raisins and sunflower seeds next time. Made for Went to the Market tag game. Thanks Lalaloula! :)
