“Have homemade cookies waiting for your child after the first day of school. This came from Parents magazine. I have not tried this, just posting for easy finding.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350. In a large food processor fitted with a metal blade or by hand, mix flour, brown sugar, wheat germ, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Cover and process until well combined. Add butter (use the tines of a fork if mixing by hand). Cover and process until fine crumbs form. Add honey, milk, and vanilla. Cover and process until mixture starts to hold together. If necessary, place in a bowl and work with your hands until dough is smooth. Divide in half and flatten each half to a disk.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll each half of dough to a 9"x8"-inch rectangle. Cut each into 18 3"x1 1/3"-inch rectangles. Arrange them 1"-inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Using the flat end of a skewer, poke an A-B-C design in each rectangle. Sprinkle each lightly with granulated sugar.
  3. Bake about 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire racks, immediately re-poke A-B-C design if necessary, and let cool completely.
