Cranberry and Sunflower Seed Cookies Recipe - Lurpak #GameOnCooks

As a nation we are obsessed with watching, reading about and hash tagging food! Over 10 million of us tune in to GBBO every week. We take to social media to post photos of meals on Instagram and we love celebrity chefs, eagerly buying their latest recipe books. In fact, according to a survey by Lurpak, we spend over 5 hours a week devouring food culture. Yet, when it comes to actually getting our hands dirty in the kitchen, we spend on average just 4 hours cooking! Our interest in all things foodie, seems to be more virtual than physical, but nothing beats a home cooked meal or some good old fashioned baking.

Lurpak's 'Game On, Cooks' campaign is stirring up a cooking revolution, encouraging Brits to turn their screens off and their ovens on. They are challenging us to create something tasty using Lurpak, to share our creations and to inspire others to get into the kitchen themselves. Because, however many recipes you pour over; TV cookery shows you watch or food apps you have downloaded on your phone, you have to get cooking to be a cook! You have to feel the dough in your hands as you work it; smell the glorious scent of fresh baking and hear the sizzle of mushrooms frying in a pan.

Lurpak is a great ingredient for both sweet and savoury recipes. You can mix, fry, drizzle and bake it into all kinds of culinary creations....or you can simply spread it on fresh baked bread or scones.

Here is a really simple recipe using Lurpak butter that is a real family favourite; Cranberry and Sunflower Seed Cookies. It's a great recipe that creates some wholesome treats that the family will love. Easy to make, perfect for sharing! The crumbly, oaty, buttery biscuit is complemented perfectly by the sweet, fruity cranberries and crunchy sunflower seeds.
