I love cookies and am always game for a new recipe. But when the recipe lacks chocolate, nuts, coconut etc. and focuses on honey and wheat germ I must say I was a bit skeptical. I made the cookie, lemon zest added interest, the dough which required a brief chill was quite tasty.
I baked a batch and ate a warm cookie. The wheat germ added a fun texture and the lemon zest gave this cookie a fresh flavor. The honey was a little strong for my taste. Did I like this cookie? I must have because I ate plenty! Would I make them again? Probably not. So many cookies, so little time! But it was a fun.
Check out the TWD site and see what other bakers thought of this unusual cookie. The recipe for Honey-Wheat cookies is on page 81 in Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. It will also be posted on Michelle's blog Flourchild.
