3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup water
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3 tbsp corn syrup
4 cups birdseed
You will also need:
Large mixing bowl
Cookie cutter of any shape
Chopstick or bamboo skewer
#2 Mix flour, water, gelatin, and corn syrup.
#3 Add birdseed.
#4 Stir well.
#5 Spray the inside of a desired cookie cutter with nonstick or vegetable cooking spray. (You could also wipe it down with vegetable oil.)
#6 Place cookie cutter on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Spoon mixture inside of cookie cutter, pressing mixture firmly with greased fingers. Tip: The more you press it down, the less shedding of seeds you will have.
#7 Using a chopstick or bamboo skewer, make a whole near the top.
#8 Remove chopstick. Then slowly pull away cookie cutter.
#9 Repeat until you've used all the mixture. Tip: You should spray the cookie cutter after every five shapes, that way it won't stick.
Let them dry for about 6-8 hours or sit overnight. Then tie twine through the hole and hang for birds to enjoy.
