Summers almost over, and it’s hot as ever here in Florida, so we’re inside the house looking for ways to get creative tis weekend. While doing some surfing the web this morning I stumbled onto something pretty awesome. Cookie Shot Glasses!!! Am I the last to know about these? A quick google search and it looks like I am. Though the idea isn’t necessarily new (according how various house wives), it was recently popularized by the same guy that created the Cronut. Lightning doesn’t usually strike twice but this guy is on a roll. Can you imagine taking a shot of something warm and delicious out of a shot glass made from a crunchy (or soft if thats your style) and gooey chocolate chip cookie. I’m having a wet day dream just thinking about it. It makes sense as a way to get creative baking for your kids, and filling it with milk is the obvious go to liquid, but we’re all adults here, so how about we fill ours with something a little bit more fun eh? Kahlua works great, Baileys or a rum cream works just as well. We’ve included a video below as well as written instructions for making the cookies below. Check it out and let us know how it turned out.
Kahlua Cookie Shots
Makes 12 shots
Cookies: (Courtesy of Popsugar)
1 cup shortening
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light-brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
For the cookie shots:
- 1 cup dark chocolate candy melts
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the molds of a popover pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and brown and granulated sugars. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract, and mix until completely incorporated. Gradually add the flour and salt, and mix until completely incorporated. Add the mini chocolate chips, and mix together until evenly distributed. The dough should be a little crumbly at this point.
3. Form the cookie shots inside the molds, making the walls of the cookie shot about 1/4 inch thick. Chill for 20 to 30 minutes before baking.
4. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the cookies just start to brown. Remove from the oven, and let cool completely.
5. Melt chocolate candy melts, and then pour the melted chocolate into the well of each cookie. Let it sit for a minute, and then pour the excess chocolate back into the pan. Chill cookie shots until the chocolate has set.
