Here’s how you can make some for your own bird cookies:
What you need:
Dehydrated Orange Slices OR Plain Sugar Cookies OR Toasted Bread Cut into Holiday Shapes
Peanut Butter **optional**
Dry Fruit (raisins, cranberries, dry bananas, etc.) **optional**
Chopped Nuts **optional**
What you do:
1) Mix softened shortening, peanut butter, bird seed, dry fruit and chopped nuts in mixing bowl. This is fun to do by hand, but a little messy!
2) Spread or heap this mixture onto your dry orange slices, cookies or toast. This is ALSO fun to do by hand, but a little messy! (Remember to wash your hands after this step.)
3) Sing a nice winter song while you add these wonderful bird cookies to your feeders.
4) Watch at your windows for colorful feathery visitors to stop by for a treat. You may even end up with a furry squirrel or two!
