Honey-Wheat Cookies via Novocaine
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Michelle of Flourchild picked Honey-Wheat Cookies, page 81 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Okay. This post is almost late (but isn't...45 minutes to spare!) and I'm way distracted. Dude, it's the Winter Olympics! I've been watching these awesome Vancouver games and have bags under my eyes to prove it. Even though I'm on the West Coast getting the delayed feed and know all the results via Twitter, I'm still lovin' it.
I planned to make these cookies yesterday but called my dentist about a sensitive tooth. Before I knew it, I was sprawled out on the dentist chair listening to soft rock and sitting through the 10-year long injection of Novocaine. Twice. Upper and lower left side of face. And then I got three filling-type buccals (I think that is what I got) to cover exposed nerve endings. Oh, my sorry gums. You literally cause me pain.
Anyway, I skipped the store (for the wheat germ) and took a nap. When I woke up, I swear, someone had come into my house and hit me on the side of the face during my nap. Or, I was on Jerry Springer and I got beat up by some woman who thought I was making eyes on her man...or woman...or transvestite man/woman. Or, I was in my new favorite Winter Olympic sport Snowboard Cross and ate it. Thus, no cookies yesterday, and just a handful of Tylenol instead.
So, as I watch the ladies short program tonight, I made a few of these Honey Wheat Cookies. Taking photos between programs and during the Ski Cross. Yes, nothing like eating cookies while athletes give it their all.
The cookies? Delicious. And they have wheat germ so I'm going to have a bunch for breakfast. ;)
