Optional: Nuts, jams, fruits ( you can use butter cookie dough ad fresh fruits and brush melted jam on top the *shortbread cookie dough goes well with these highlighted above for the recipe.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.Use a confectionery sugar and water frosting over the top.
Mix chopped hazelnuts with Nutella and spread over plain baked cookie cups

Roll a scant teaspoon ball of dough and place into paper liners in your muffin tins. Press down slightly with your index finger.
