This week’s TWD recipe, Honey Wheat Cookies, was chosen by Michelle of Flourchild. These are definitely some interesting cookies. And by interesting, I mean I don’t like them. Hey, it happens…not often, but still it happens. Perhaps it was because I used orange zest instead of lemon zest and it threw off the flavor balance, but I thought these cookies tasted a little like orange-y saw dust (thank you, wheat germ).

Anyway, these could’ve very well turned out beautifully for lots of other people, so don’t be thrown off by my opinion! If you’d like the recipe, head over to Michelle’s blog and she’ll have it posted.



  1. Hmmm…orange saw dust does not sound too appealing. They kind of look like biscuits! Thanks for posting your honest opinion of them!

  2. LOL, Jamie! Maybe I should’ve given them to the dog…they might have been a little more well-received!

  3. Well, they look good. That’s what I like about baking with this group…sometimes it’s a winner and sometimes it’s not.

  7. Your cookies look so cute perched on the plate like that, I like the roundness of them and the orange part sounds fun, I will try that. I loved these, they were the perfect match with a cup of tea as the lemon and honey were built right into the cookie. What a deal!
