Tuesdays with Dorie: Honey-Wheat Cookies

honey-wheat cookies

If you’re looking for a nice little tea biscuit to have with your cuppa, then you might want to give these Honey-Wheat Cookies, chosen by  Michelle of Flourchild for TWD, a shot.  They are soft and cakey in the center and crisp around the bottom egde…a really nicely textured cookie.  And they taste like honey, lemons and wheat…just the right thing to nibble on while you destress with a cup of tea and a magazine.

Are you up in the air about buying a jar of wheat germ for this recipe?  You can really do a lot of things with it, as long as you remember you have it (not gonna lie, I can be a total space-cadet sometimes)!  I store mine in the fridge, and put a tablespoon into things like smoothies and pancake batter.  Incorporating a little bit into muffins or crisp topping is nice, too.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Flourchild.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. How cute they are nestled next to your cup of tea (or is that coffee?) I think I doubled up on the baking powder by accident but they were still delicious.

  2. Loving all ur whisks and spoons n tools that are a part of ur team to have such delicious results!!!!
    Cheers and wonderful day to ya…..

  3. I love being able to see the insides of a cookie! And how retro is that spoon!!! 🙂 Always a pleasure reading your posts!

  4. Yeah, I got rid of a whole heap of “stuff” that was in the bottom of the pantry that I’d bought for various recipes and never used again!

  5. Your are much more cakelike than mine, they look great! Mine turned out very chewy, I baked right at 10 minutes. Love that spoon!

  6. Space cadet? LOL Been awhile since I heard that term. But I can relate when it comes to food in the pantry. These look perfect for a stressful day.

  7. Gorgeous pic! These cookies really took me by surprise- I loved them.

  8. what a gorgeous photo! Your cookies look beautiful! I really enjoyed these! I was actually surprised by how much I loved them!

  9. They look DELICIOUS….Can’t wait to make them for my hubby.

  10. Gosh you take such great photos! I am eyeballing a new camera right now, a digital SLR. Love these cookies! Your look delicious!

  11. You’re right — wheat germ can sneak into a lot of great recipes. I add it to waffles, but there are lots of other possibilities. Your cookie looks really good!

  12. Great photo! This picture is so warm and inviting. I liked these a lot too and they gave me a chance to use the wheat germ I had sitting in my freezer!

  13. Im glad you enjoyed the cookies, they look great! Thank you for baking along with me this week.

  14. Oooh, good idea putting wheat germ into smoothies.

    Your cookies look so good!

  15. Ooh, good tips on using wheat germ! I’ll have to try it…

  16. Perfectly wonderful cookie! Just right with tea – or coffee. I agree – wheat germ makes anything a little “healthier”. Glad you liked these – they were a very nice surprise (wasn’t expecting much)! 🙂

  17. i loved the texture of these too! and i also love sneaking a little wheat germ into breakfast! I love it on my steel cut oatmeal with a little agave and cinnamon.

  18. I love a good cakey cookie. These look great.

  19. Yes, perfect with a cuppa. Not too sweet and nicely chewy/crisp.

    love the pic.

  20. Yeah — another fan of wheat germ! Same as you, I’ll use it if I remember that is sitting way in the back of the fridge.

    I can’t wait to enjoy this cookie as you mentioned (5 more days left of my detox plan) – with a cup of tea and a mag.

  21. I love wheat germ! Never thought so many people judging by the comments here, liked it so much! It makes some of the best cookies… like the Digestive kind.

    Now I was first struck by how nice and clear your cookie was on your pic then, I got curious about what book or writing was reflecting in your cup! LOL …Now I have an even better notion of how the workers in the building across the street must feel when they try to find out what major yummy baking you’ve been up to! LOL A matter of offering them a telescope next Xmas!!! I can only read …Cook… huh? something-a-majig… shows you keep in the subject! LOL LOL LOL

    • Good eye, Vibi! It’s Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything Vegetarian.”

  22. Your cookies look perfect! I pushed mine from tea-cake-like to full-on-cookie by frosting them. I thought they were great.

  23. They look lovely propped up there with that fun cup/plate/spoon. We loved these…and once you start adding wheat germ here and there it overtakes your life! In a good way.

  24. Steph,
    Thanks for reminding me of WG’s many uses. Gosh, I never think of them. I’m thinking I baked mine a little too long. Yours look very pretty. Nicely done.

  25. Tea, cookies and a magazine sounds like a nice way to spend some time! Great photo.

  26. Mmm honey wheat cookies, these sound so good 🙂 yum.
