Ingredients
  • 120g butter (organic), at room temperature + a little extra for greasing 100g caster sugar
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 1 egg (organic)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 280g all-purpose flour (organic)
  • pinch of salt
  • 100g semi-sweet chocolate chips 50g semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  • cold milk (organic)
Instructions
  1. Using a brush grease six cup moulds (diameter 7.5cm, height 6.5cm) with butter and line the bottom and the sides with parchment paper (cut to the appropriate size).
  2. Cream together the butter, caster and brown sugar. Add the egg and continue mixing until it is well incorporated. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  3. Combine the flour and salt in a small bowl. Mix in the flour mixture in three batches until everything is incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips, using a spatula. Place the dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes, to make it easier to work with.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  5. Flour your hands and start building your cookie shot. Taking a small piece of dough at a time, press it into the prepared forms, starting at the base. The cookie shot should be between 0.5 and 1 cm thick. Once you have formed all your cookie shots, smooth out the edges using a knife. Bake them for 10-15 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and crispy. Once they are done, take them out and let them cool for 30
  6. minutes.
  7. If the dough has slightly risen in the middle of your shots, while they are still warm, use a sharp knife to carefully cut out a hole. Then use a teaspoon to scoop out the excess dough. If you feel that the bottom of your cookie shots is not crispy enough, pop them in the oven for
  8. another 5 minutes.
  9. Remove the cookie shots from the moulds and peel off the parchment paper. Generously brush the insides of the shots with the melted chocolate, doing about 2 coats. The chocolate coating will prevent the milk from making the cookie base soggy. Transfer the cookie shots to
  10. the fridge for at least 30 minutes, until the chocolate has set.
  11. Once the chocolate has hardened, fill your cookie shots with cold milk. You can enjoy your chocolate cookie shots like that or froth some extra milk (I've used an induction milk frother). Let your milk foam cool for a bit before putting it on top of your cookie shots, otherwise the
  12. chocolate will melt and the cookie base will get soggy. Enjoy!
Notes
Store your cookie shots in an airtight container, preferably in the refrigerator.
