You may have heard about the milk shot glasses made from cookies that were all the rage at SXSW last week. Turns out they're not too difficult to make, so if you want your ice cold milk in a shot glass made of cookie, here's how you can enjoy them at home.
We have Instructables user klee67 to thank for this how-to. Just make your favourite cookie batter the way you normally would -- she used Serious Eats' chocolate chip recipe, but altered it a bit by beating it longer than recommended and adding more flour, which made it more malleable and easier to roll.
From there, the magic comes from the mould. She uses a popover pan with wide, cylindrical holes for the cookie cups, lined with baking paper around the outside so the cups will come out easily. Then, for the inside, she wrapped some wine corks in aluminium foil, cut them into segments, and put them into the holes in the popover tin as well.
Then she used a pizza cutter and a rolling pin to roll the cookie dough around the foil-covered corks and the round "bottom" of the cookie shot glass that will go on top of the mould. Place in the oven at 190 degrees C for 10-14 minutes. Slide the noulds out of the popover pan, turn them over, and pour in your milk -- that's all there is to it.
