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.
Zesty sugar and butter are creamed together.
Honey and egg are added.
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.
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.
