Nut free bird cookies ( they can be frozen)
2 cups lard
2 cups No Nuts Butter (This is a Canadian company.)
1/2 cup nyjer and black sunflower seed (“Finch Feast“)
1/4 cup dried fruit, cranberries or raisins
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
Place 26 cupcake liners on a tray or in cupcake pans. Melt lard and No Nuts Butter over low heat until completely melted. While lard is melting, mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add melted lard and No Nuts Butter mixture to dry ingredients and mix until well blended. Immediately ladle batter into cupcake holders, filling then 2/3 full. Place in refrigerator for 5 minutes. Remove and poke a hole in each bird cookie using a chopstick. This must be done before the cookies are too hard. When it’s time hang the cookies outside in a tree, thread a piece of ribbon or string through the hole and tie to branch. The bird seed cookies can be frozen until needed.
