Dandelion Flower Cookies

A rite of spring at my house. Pick blossoms well away from roadways and where they have not been sprayed with weed killer.

½ cup butter

½ cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup flour

1 cup dry quick oatmeal

½ cup dandelion flower petals (just the yellow parts. No green leaf parts from the base of the blossom.)


Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Stir in dry ingredients and the dandelion flowers.

Drop by spoonfuls onto an oiled baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes.
