Try these as a perfect companion to a cocktail. Test Kitchen Specialist Marian Cooper Cairns likes to use a combination of parsley, thyme, and oregano, but sage, rosemary, basil, and chives will work just as well. Using a small cookie dough scoop for the batter gives the baked cupcakes a pretty round top.
