Dominique Ansel has some magic Kool Aid and New Yorkers can't drink enough of it. Yes, the cronut was delicious. But was it genius? Not so much. Now, he forms a cookie into a chocolate chip cookie shot glass and the city is losing. its. mind. Literally, everyone is freaking out over a cookie that holds milk.
I am going to bet all my cookies that everyone losing their shit does not have kids. Because if they did, they would know this is not new. Anyone who has ever had a bored kid or two, cookie ingredients and a rainy afternoon has probably made this chocolate chip cookie shot glass at least once.
My first try was using mini muffin tin. The excitement got the better of us and we went with a regular sized muffin tin. Then we got totally nuts and filled it with Nutella instead of milk. Can't wait until he tries that. Forget the Polar Vortex frenzy, Manhattanites will start believing in God.
Before you start lining up for days trying to buy a $12 dollar cookie, try making it yourself at home. You might even enjoy yourself.
Just press your cookie dough into the muffin tin with your fingers until you've hugged the sides and your well is as deep as you would like. If you prefer a bowl style cookie - to have, say, cereal in, just adhere the dough to the outside of an upside down muffin tin. Really want to recreate his fancy-schmancy shaped shot glass? Get a baking cylinder or make one yourself using tin-foil.
They even have them at Amazon.
Want to make your own? Just form a wad of aluminum foil into the perfect shot glass shape. You can use the cardboard from a roll of paper towels to mold around. It's kind of the easiest thing to do in the world. I did this at 5:30 AM in the dark with my baby sleeping next to me.
Because. It's a COOKIE.
