At last! I finally tried Dominique Ansel‘s famous cookie shot. (I still have yet to try his even-more-famous Cronut. Someday… when the lines die down!) I waited in a short and fairly painless line for the cookie shot, which the bakery starts selling at 3:00 p.m. The staff formed a separate “cookie shot” line for customers outside. For those purchasing other bakery items, there was a general line kept inside the store. Sounds crazy, but it actually works pretty efficiently. I arrived around 2:40 p.m. and stepped in line outside. I was probably 6th or 7th in line… not too shabby!
Once inside — a little after 3:00 p.m., I ordered my cookie shot, which came served with ice cold vanilla bean-infused milk. I honestly kept my expectations low. I thought the cookie would be dry — but it blew my mind! You know those super soft, gooey, heavenly chocolate chip cookies you had growing up? They just tasted so sweet and chewy, but now are so hard to replicate when baking on your own? That’s how the cookie shot tasted. I don’t even know what it was — could it have been the butter content, sugar, number of chocolate chips? No idea. But it just WORKS. I drank the milk right away. If you don’t, the cookie will start leaking from the bottom! Mine was almost getting close to that point.
Here’s a shot post-milk swigging… after a few bites. At this point it was almost like a cookie taco or mini burrito. Yum!
