These wholesome treats are made with wheat germ and brown sugar. Fill the cookies with raspberry jam for a burst of fruit flavor (other fruit jams also work), and drizzled chocolate adds an indulgent finish.
For tinted cookies, add drops of gel-paste
food coloring once the flour is incorporated. If you'd like to try a variation, see what ingredients to add: Spice Cookie Dough, Chocolate Cookie Dough, Citrus Cookie Dough.
The tops of these brownie-like cookies look as if they've been shattered. Coat the balls of dough thoroughly in confectioners' sugar before they go in the oven. They'll flatten and "crack" on their own as they bake.
Skip the green food coloring. We've raised the bar for Saint Patty's Day desserts. These blondies are enriched with Irish coffee-inspired flavors -- ground coffee in the batter, whiskey in the sugar glaze. And you don't have to pull out the heavy stand mixer: A bowl and a wooden spoon will do.
