TWD – Honey-Wheat Cookies

Okay, Dorie.  This was sneaky.  I figured I'd probably like these, and I hoped that the kids would.  But I really didn't expect to find them instantly addicting.  So much so that the first dozen I baked just…kind of…disappeared somewhere.  My kids were at school, so they didn't eat them.  My husband was at work, so it wasn't him.  I think I'm going to blame the cats.

This week's recipe was chosen by Michelle of Flour Child - thanks, Michelle!  She's got the recipe posted right here, and if you'd like to see how everyone else did this week, you can get started here.

Dorie's Honey-Wheat Cookies are very easy to put together, and now that I know how yummy they are, I wish I'd doubled the recipe.  Although…maybe it's just as well that I didn't.  Given how…the cats like them so much.

So here we go - ingredients are gathered.


Dry ingredients are whisked together.

Lemon zest and sugar are rubbed together…oh, the kitchen already smells great.


Zesty sugar and butter are creamed together.


Honey and egg are added.

Dry ingredients are incorporated, and the whole (very sticky) thing is wrapped tightly in plastic.  Into the fridge it went for a couple of hours.

And then it was time to bake.  Oven was preheated.  Pans were lined with parchment.


I sliced them into strips and then cut each strip into 6 portions.


Then I rolled each sticky little piece of dough into a ball.


And then I rolled each little ball around in the wheat germ.

I forgot, however, to press them down with the bottom of a glass. 

But I don't think they were ruined because of it.


No, not ruined at all.  In fact, they smelled pretty good.


And…well, we don't really need to go there, do we? 

Oh, and come back again soon, as I'll be telling you all about the horrible thing that happened just as I was finishing this post Tuesday night.

  1. It’s that Scratchy… always into everything. You can’t trust him…

    It wouldn’t have been the girls. We girls don’t snitch cookies without asking mum. Oh no.

  2. Your cookies look perfect, absolutely perfect. Very nice job on all your process photos always, I am so intimidated when I visit b/c you do such a great job. I loved these, they were the perfect match with a cup of tea as the lemon and honey were built right into the cookie. What a deal!
