Many of these recipes make the perfect edible gifts that your friends and family will love, too. We love adding whole-wheat flour to our sugar cookies for an added nutty flavor, and we sneak beets into our red velvet batter for a deep ruby color and even deeper flavor.

Think of these tasty little tassies as your own personal pecan pie. They're both salty and sweet, with a hit of oaky bourbon. Whole-grain rye flour adds the perfect touch of sour to the shortbread-like crust, while toasted pecans do double duty in the crust and in the maple-splashed filling. As if that weren't enough to jingle your bell, we drizzle warm bittersweet chocolate over each bite to ensure maximum satisfaction.
