  2. In a pan without seasoning toast sunflower seeds over medium heat until they become slightly golden and crisp.

  4. Mix with a fork until you have a sand-like texture. Add egg and work everything briefly until the dough becomes smooth. Cover with plastic wrap (because I'm trying to have as less plastic waste as possible I prefer using small food containers) and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

  5. After this time divide the dough into many balls similar to each other and place on a baking sheet covered with baking paper leaving enough space between a cookie and another. Press lightly with a fork to create a pattern above the cookie.

  6. Bake in a preheated static oven at 180 °C for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely. Add a teaspoon of mulberry jam over a cookie, then add the second cookie and serve.

    lot of love. B.
