A cookie with a hole

I just finished packing. I should go to bed because tomorrow I leave early, but I’m here instead writing a post. Also in the afternoon instead of doing all sorts of stuff I had to do, I did a little something for you. Why? Well, because you deserve it.

Today I have no recipe, just an idea. And it’s not even my idea, but I just had to share. This is just a cute way to serve Chocolate Chip Cookies, so use your favourite recipe (or check this chart to find a good CCC recipe).

I saw this a while ago in a hotel webpage, just in a picture of one of the rooms. I don’t even remember the hotel, but I do remember the cookie!

So to do it you’ll need cookie dough, shot glasses and round cookie cutters with 2 different sizes. Get your favourite Chocolate chip cookie dough (in my case I used one that I had frozen) and bake your cookies. Use a big scoop to make big cookies (I sprinkled my dough with demerara sugar for extra crunch). Right after you take them out of the oven and they’re still soft press the cutters like in the picture to make a perfect round cookie with a round hole in one side.

Make sure the cutter you use for the hole is slightly wider than your shot glasses, so they fit inside. Fill the shot glass with cold milk, put it in the Chocolate chip cookie hole and serve… or eat it yourself!

I wish I had a few more to eat on my way to Seville tomorrow… Ok, it’s definitely bed time for me now. I’m so gonna have sweet dreams now!

Así que vienes para las Españas...¡¡¡ Espero que hayas echado ropa de verano en la maleta !!! Porque en Sevilla tiene que estar haciendo un calorazo que no veas.

Me ha encantado la idea. Me ha recordado algo así como a "tapas" dulces.

Dicen que el nombre de "tapas" de las saladas viene de lo que se solía poner sobre el vaso de vino, tapando el contenido, para que no le cayeran moscas y que también tenía la función de que la gente comiese algo a la vez que bebía para que el vino no se subiera tanto y se emborracharan menos.

Esto me ha parecido en toda regla una especie de "tapa" dulce, para los vasitos de leche. Me ha encantado la idea. En cuanto pueda, la pongo en práctica.

PÁSALO MUY REQUETEBIEN.

Ooo neat! Isn't it funny how we can attribute a place/memory with food, but often times forget the place or any other details but the food!? That's a foodie for ya!

Have a fun and safe trip! I've never been to Seville but I've been to other areas of Spain and have loved it.

This really is a clever idea. I found your blog by chance and planned to say hello and move on. I was, instead, lured by your earlier posts and stayed much longer than I planned. I love your recipes and the tone of your blog. I'll be back as often as I can. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

What a fun way to serve cookies.

Téia said...

Querida, que forma de apresentação original. Adorei! Achei muito boa a lembrança de cookies com leite, remete a infância ou a outros tempos, porque aqui no Brasil a mania de se comer com refrigerantes já se difundiu e é horrível. Bj grande.
