Dandelion Cookies

Easy Dandelion Cookies

Dandelion flowers, as well as the greens, are extremely nutritious and have none of the bitterness of dandelion leaves if you pinch off the green bracts at the base of the flower cluster. Visit Wildman Steve Brill to learn all about the nutritional facts of dandelions (and other wild edibles).
Tips for Removing Florets:

For this recipe you need to remove the florets from their base. Hold the florets with one hand and pinch the green flower base very hard with the other, give a little twist and that should do it.
