TWD - Honey Wheat Cookies


Another Tuesday rolls around and it's
Tuesday with Dorie time again. Our host this week is Michelle of Flourchild, who chose Dorie's Honey Wheat Cookies.

For me, these were a welcome change from a very chocolatey month. I wasn't so sure about the wheatgerm, as this is not a pantry staple for me, but I am glad I made these. They reminded me of a sweet version of Arnotts Shredded Wheatmeal biscuits, and I found them rather comforting and not overly sweet.

I am not sure how Dorie got 36 x 1 inch balls out of the dough - I barely got 22 cookies. However, this is a minor quibble about a delicious recipe that I think would be a great semi-healthy alternative for kids.

For the recipe, check out Michelle's blog, and to see what the other TWD members thought, visit the blogroll.

Such a pretty plate your delicious looking cookies are on! I loved these. Not too sweet, chewy, crunchy, delicious!

I love shredded wheatmeal biscuits so thanks for this! I agree, they're really comforting (and so suited to being dunked in tea) :)

These look yummy! I passed on the lemon and honey and used maple syrup instead.

Jennifer said...

I always have trouble with cookie yields-mine differ greatly from what the cookbook says.

These look great!!!!

Cathy said...

Your cookies look great! These were a pleasant surprise for me too. Who would have thought, wheat germ . . .

These were a little sweet for me, but I love the texture and the wheat germ on the outside. I didn't count how many I got and now it's too late because we ate a bunch!

As much as I love chocolate, this was a welcome change. Pretty cookies on a pretty plate.

BTW James Taylor was/is a folk singer from the early 70s. Known as Sweet Baby James, he is still around.

I seem to be eating a lot of things with honey in them at the moment, so I may as well add these to the list! 'Comforting and not overly sweet' sounds like just what I'm after.

Ivy said...

Great looking cookies. They must taste great.

Pamela said...

You're right. They were a nice change of pace considering all of the chocolate we did in February! Nice job.

Heavenly Housewife said...

I bet these would be delicious with a cup of tea.

The cookies look wonderful and I love that plate they are resting upon. We loved these...perfect with tea as the honey and lemon are already built right in...what a great deal!
