It looks like cake. It tastes like butter pecan ice cream. You don’t need a baking sheet to make it. But don’t let anyone try to call you out on a technicality—one bite and it’s clear this big sliceable round boy is all cookie. Maple-syrup-glazed pecans in the dough lend nutty depth, then get sprinkled on top with sugar for an icicles-on-tree-branches vibe sure to freeze out the cookie swap competition. See recipe.
