TWD-Honey Wheat Cookies
I'm very late for this Tuesday posting of TWD, hosted by Michele of Flourchild. I usually do my baking on Monday and have ample time to post on Tuesday morning, but yesterday came and went, so tackled the cookies this afternoon. They are wonderful-not real sweet and have that healthy taste, even though there is a stick of butter in the ingredients. No matter! I used ginger honey that I have on hand and made a ginger honey tea to go with the cookies. Michele has the recipe for the honey wheat cookies on her site and the ginger tea is below. Be sure and check out all the TWD bakers to see their version of the honey wheat cookies.
Original recipe here.
4 cups water
2-inch piece of fresh ginger root
optional: honey and lemon slice
Peel the ginger root and slice it into thin slices. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Once it is boiling, add the ginger. Cover it and reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes. Strain the tea. Add honey and lemon to taste.
