These cookies are so basic which is generally against my religion, but they do not need anything else. I’m always tempted to add this or that (mostly spices) but when I try them plain I am always suprised they taste so good. If you have salted sunflower seeds, skip the salt. I tend to keep raw seeds in stock, so I add it and adjust the salt to my taste. They do not spread for me, so make sure you push them down a bit pre-bake or after baking, unless you want little domed cookies. Your choice!
