    Donna M.'s Note:

    A quick and easy way to use your sourdough starter. Yummy for breakfast or just a snack. Add a little grated orange or lemon zest for a burst of citrus flavor.

      I will try these again, but next time I will reduce the baking powder to half as I could taste it in them. I also think they would be better with 1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon added to the dough. With these two modifications I'm sure they would be great with a caramel glaze, icing drizzled on top, or the suggested butter & cinnamon/sugar topping. Thanks for sharing this recipe Donna!

      I have made these to bring to work multiple times and I always get rave reviews. I usually use walnuts instead of pecans due to the cost difference, and I always add about 1 tsp of cinnamon and 2 tbsp more sugar to the dough. To make them extra-good I do the cinnamon-sugar-butter topping, then once they cool top them with a vanilla glaze (I use the one from Betty Crocker) and drizzle over top - they look pretty and they're always gone by mid-day!
