Lemon-Frosted Sugar Cookies

I was looking to make sugar cookies for an event and disappointed to not find a relatively healthy version here. So now I'm adding one. This one began as a Cooking Light recipe and includes my adjustments. Not your typical sugar cookie, the wheat germ gives these a pale brown color and a nuttiness that contrasts nicely with the lemon glaze. The dough needs to chill at least four hours and does best if chilled overnight, so you need to plan ahead with this one.
