Homemade Cookie Shots For The Fussy Milk-Repelling Child!
First there was the Cronut, and then Award winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel came up with a recipe that is such a blessing for all the mommies! Before I tell you what recipe is going to be all about, let me ask you a question. Do your kids simply refuse to down that glass of milk every morning? Do you have to run after them in your night gown chasing them till the school bus? I know how exasperating it can be to feed your little ones in the morning, but here's some relief – Dominique Ansel's amazing creation: the cookie shot glass!
Bribe your kid with one and fill it with milk, they won't be able to resist it! So here's the home-made version of the famous cookie shot glasses!
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups mini chocolate chips
Method: In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix together. Slowly add the flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix on low speed until a very smooth dough forms. Finally stir in half of the chocolate chips.
Take a chunk of dough and press into bottom of a muffin mould and around the sides, trying to make sure that there is an even thin layer of dough all around the interior. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes to make it less sticky. Slightly moistened, clean hands are much better at shaping and working with dough. Wrap the shot glasses with parchment paper and press it in each mould. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 370 degrees F (approx. 180 degrees C). 10 to 12 minutes should be fine.
Working quickly, remove cookies from the oven and check on the interior by removing the glasses and parchment paper. If cookie dough is still slightly raw inside, remove the parchment paper and replace glasses and bake for two minutes again.
Once the cookie shots are done, remove carefully and allow to cool. While cookie shots are cooling, melt the remaining chocolate chips and brush the interior of the cookie shots with chocolate, making sure to coat every crevice. And there you have it!
Pour in cold milk once the chocolate coating sets and serve immediately!
