I admit that I have wheat germ in my freezer. I've been known to add it to smoothies, or my oatmeal on the rare occasion I feel like being ultra 70's hippie chic. It's the same day that I wear my tie-dye and bell bottoms and poke a flower in my hair. No, really. My tennis friends love it when I show up on match day like that.
Suriously, I do have wheat germ and I do use it. I just never thought about putting it into a cookie. I don't think it really has much flavor. (Which I guess is why I can add it to my oatmeal and not vomit.) And I don't really think these cookies have a lot of flavor. Some subtle hits of lemon and honey, but that's about it. For me it had the taste and texture of a sugar cookie. Not good but not bad either.
I doubt these get made again here at Casa Buker but try them for yourselves. They took about 5 minutes to throw together and then you can refrigerate the dough and bake whenever you feel like it's a bell bottom day!
