Let's get one thing straight, ok. When I say tacky, it has nothing to do with the cookies or the recipe. Just the blogger/baker of the cookies herself. I loooooove being in the Tuesdays With Dorie club! I'm not gonna lie, being a TWD Baker makes me feel a little special, and I always look forward to trying something I've never made before. Sadly though, this club has done nothing to thwart my bad habits of procrastination and occasional laziness. I admit there have been a few recipes I have made a few days, or even a week in advance, and been totally prepared to post without feeling rushed or the least bit stressed. But there have also been weeks where I wake up at 5 o'clock in the morning to make a recipe before I go to work! This week I did pretty good on the timing, but that's where the laziness kicked it. I put these delicious cookies away in storage bags before I remembered to take pictures for my post...and that is why there are shiny, non-photogenic ziplock bags in these very professional-looking pics.
Honey Wheat Cookies

Please don't judge me. Try to look past the plastic to the soft, lemon-y, fabulous cookies! The dough was quick and easy to make, and I could fit 20 cookies on a sheet at a time so it didn't take long to cook them either. I ended up with 40 cookies, by the way. The wheat germ coating made them taste healthier than they probably are, but it sure makes ya feel a little better as you swallow the last bite of your 4th helping. They're not too rich, and not too gooey...they're just right! You can visit Flourchild for the complete recipe.
