MM in the Kitchen: My Next Baking Project?

I am actually thinking about trying to make these cookies. Or maybe these cupcakes. Thoughts?

Yes, I am insane. Yes, it's fun to be insane in the kitchen! Yes, kitchen-madness is a fine way of avoiding academic research and the perils of footnoting. And yes, I'm also looking for a cool new baking trick so I can impress people when I have company. Which is rare these days. Because I am insane.
