  • 280 g (2 cups) all-purpose flour (dip and sweep)*
  • 150 g (⅔ cup) butter, at room temperature, cut into cubes
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 g (1 teaspoon) salt
  • 5 g (1 teaspoon) sugar
  • 45 g (⅓ cup) sunflower seeds

The Glaze

  • 15 g (1 tablespoon) milk OR egg wash (1 egg yolk+1 teaspoon water)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F(177C°). Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • Combine flour, salt and sugar in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Place the butter in a large bowl and beat on medium speed for 1 to 2 minutes until it is soft with a hand-held mixer or with paddle attachment if using a stand-mixer. Add the egg and mix well. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with rubber spatula to be sure they are all mixed.
  • Add in the flour mixture and mix well until the dough comes together.
  • Take 25 gram pieces ( a little bit more than 1 tablespoon can take) of the dough and roll them into balls. Alternatively, you can divide the dough equally into 20 pieces and roll each into a ball as this recipe makes 20 cookies. Press the balls preferably with a flat-bottomed glass or a measuring cup to flatten them evenly or with the palm of your hand.
  • Glaze the cookies with milk or egg wash them by mixing 1 egg yolk with 1 teaspoon of water. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds on top of them.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until the edges change color. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 15 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to completely cool.
