The dough balls are rolled in wheat germ and baked. They are great still warm, although I haven't had a chance to taste the cooled ones yet. They are quite cakey, but not too thick, so they still are like cookies. You can really taste the lemon, honey, and the nutty flavor from the wheat germ (although it probably helped that mine was pre-toasted). If you want to try a yummy sort-of-healthy cookie recipe, you can buy the book or find it here. Enjoy!

TWD: Honey Wheat Cookies
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Michelle of Flourchild. She chose the Honey Wheat Cookies. These are one of the few recipes in the book that won't instantly kill you from all the butter and sugar. They use wheat germ (I had most of a jar left from god knows what) and honey (!). The dough is fairly quick to put together - you rub lemon zest into sugar, add butter, honey and an egg, and then add flour, wheat germ, baking powder, and salt. So these would be quick to make... notice the WOULD be.... if it weren't for the two-hour chilling time. But you can find something to do for two hours, right? Go make a tart or something ;)
