These unique cookies are baked in muffin cups, giving them a perfectly round shape. I sometimes omit the pecans and decorate the cookies for holidays.

"This is my go-to recipe for all my sibling's bake sales. It's so adaptable! Substituting the vanilla extract for lemon or orange and adding in lemon zest gives them a nice citrus punch. Or I subtract 1/2 cup of the flour and add in 1/2 a cup of cocoa powder for chocolate, or I just add in cinnamon, ginger, and cloves for spiced teacakes."
