A fun, easy little project!
|2 cups bird seed mix
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup cold water
2 packs of gelatine
2 tablespoons corn syrup
Mix the gelatine packs with the cold water until they dissolve.
Add the hot water and continue to mix. Then add the corn syrup and bird seed.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place about 10 cookie cutters on the baking sheet. Firmly press your bird seed mixture into the cookie cutters.
Take plastic straws, that you cut into three pieces until you have a total of 10.
Insert a straw into each bird seed cookie, allowing enough room around the edges.
Let the cookies set for 48 hours.
Once set remove from the cookie cutters they should be firm, remove the straws and tie a string through the hole.
