Honey Lemon Cookies

Taste of Home magazine says, “Pat Habiger of Spearville, Kansas brought home a blue ribbon from the state fair with these delightful cookies flavored with lemon peel and rolled in a wheat germ coating.”

1/3 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup honey

1 egg

1 tsp grated lemon peel

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup wheat germ, divided

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in the honey, egg and lemon peel. Combine the flour, 1/4 cup wheat germ, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

Roll dough into 1″ balls; roll in remaining wheat germ. Place 2″ apart on baking sheets coated with Pam. Bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in a resealable plastic bag.
