TWD- Honey-Wheat Cookies

Dorie baker, Michelle, of Flourchild picked Honey-Wheat Cookies, found on page 81 of
Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. Visit Michelle for the recipe.
Dorie says this recipe is an adaptation of a back-to-the-earth movement recipe from the 1970's.
It includes the wholesomeness of wheat germ along with honey and lemon.
When I think of the 70's, tie-dye comes to mind. So, having a little fun, I checked Abbey's room for something reminiscent of that era. I found a batik she made in art and used it as a backdrop.
Dories recipe does not call for frosting and the cookies are good with their honey and lemon flavors shining through the hearty taste of wheat.
Since I had some left-over frosting in the fridge from Ina's delicious cupcakes, I spread it on a few and made little sandwich cookies.
A humble cookie as presented, this cookie is easily dressed up with a dunk in melted chocolate and a sprinkling of chopped nuts.

Your goodies look so tempting! We are trying to be good around here ...its hard...smile. The goal is to get my husband off of his blood pressure medicine. We aren't doing so good but keep trying. I feel guilty writing this...I made him a 'one crust' peach pie tonight! btw, I enjoy cryptograms also...but must have one or two clues. I am not any good at crosswords...but love jumbles. Have a nice evening! I am looking forward to making more stars (thanks again for your excellent tutorial)...and getting some parafin wax. I'm tempted to dip them in my candle-warmer wax. Is that do-able? I dipped pressed leaves in it and they were good. Also I dipped small collages. Just wondering...

These sound very tasty and I like the way you photographed them with the 70's flair! I think I am stuck in the 70's!!!

Looks like you and I were on the same page with sandwich cookies. Love the peace sign too.
