Cookie Shot

One year after introducing the Cronut, Dominique Ansel Bakery’s newest creation, The Cookie Shot, makes Time Out New York’s “100 Best Dishes in New York City.”

Owner/pastry chef Dominique Ansel earlier this year introduced The Cookie Shot, a chocolate chip cookie cup filled with vanilla milk and inspired by the classic American pairing.

The design is deceptively simple: cookie dough shaped into a shot glass, then filled with milk to be eaten on the spot.

The superb base cookie, similar to the bakery's standard version, uses high-end 66% Valrhona chocolate. Each shot is served warm with soft, gooey chocolate chips, a buttery crumb, and a fresh-out-of-the-oven aroma. Five Acre Farms whole milk infused with Tahitian vanilla fills the shot, offering its own powerful fragrance.
