Honey Wheat Cookies

I wasn't too keen on making these cookies because they contain 1/2 cup of wheat germ and my previous experience with wheat germ calls to mind gritty, chopped cardboard. But this recipe is the recipe of the week for the Tuesdays with Dorie crowd so I bought the wheat germ and made the dough. After chilling overnight, I rolled out the little balls of dough, rolled them around in more wheat germ, placed them on the cookie sheet, flattened them a bit and baked them.

I think they are cute and I can definitely see how they would be good with tea. The honey flavor comes through so I can also see how the taste would vary depending on the kind of honey used. My verdict is that these are tasty . . . .but I still prefer chocolate in my cookies!
