TWD: Honey-Wheat Cookies



Michelle of Flourchild decided on Honey-Wheat Cookies, page 81, for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. Check out her blog or Dorie's book for the recipe.

Thanks for picking something I would normally not make. At a first glance, the recipe doesn't seem particularly interesting or appealing, but the result is a delicious and nutty little treat. They don't taste "wheaty" or "too healthy" and even my mom who is the most unhealthy eater I know, enjoyed these.

I did make a few little changes:
1) Added toasted, chopped hazelnuts
2) Instead of dropping and pressing each cookie individually, I made the dough into a log, froze it then sliced and baked a few hours later.

Your cookies look fabulous!! Love the fact that you added pecans and did slice and bake. They look even better than I know they taste!

Thanks for visiting my site today! Those jalapeno scones below look awesome!! I've also been enjoying everyone's comments about the TWD cookies. They look unique and tasty.

Slice'n'Bake. Great idea and much less time consuming than rolling little balls.

Love the additions and slice and bake too! I wouldn't have picked this recipe either and added peanut butter chips to mine. Thanks for popping by new food blog too - it's good to know the tutorials are informative. :)

I love that you added hazelnuts to this recipe, That must have made them even richer. Your cookies almost looks like sables! :)

Valerina, you're right, they do look like sables!
I think they came out sable-y looking because they were a bit drier from the added nuts and nut-dust??? or maybe because they were frozen before baking so they held their shape better. Hmm...

Slice and bake is always a nice option. And toasted hazelnuts?? How can you go wrong with that??

I couldn't bake along this week but looking at your cookies, I wished I had. Looks very enticing!
