What is Cookie Shot?
If you have never seen or heard of a cookie shot before, it is a cookie in the shape of a shot glass that is often filled with milk or other beverages. This way, you can nibble on the cookie while sipping milk. It is a fun and inventive way to enjoy your classic milk and cookie.
You can use different types of cookies to make the shot. From chocolate chip cookies to oatmeal cookies, you want to make sure to use a recipe that doesn't expand too much while remaining buttery with a crispy, so it is satisfying.
What You Will Need To Make These Oatmeal Cookie Shots?
Shot glasses For Baking
To make oatmeal cookie shots, you need shot glasses as the molding. To give room for the cookie to bake and allow you to fill it up with your favorite beverage, I recommend using a wide shot glass like a tequila shot glass. Make sure your shot glass is also oven safe (most plain shot glass is oven safe.
If you don't have enough shot glasses at home, you can either bake it in multiple batches or bake it in a small cupcake tray or small ceramic cup. The downside of a cupcake tray is the cookie shot won't be as tall.
Chocolate For Coating Inside
To give the oatmeal cookie shot a chocolaty flavor and a shell that divides your beverage and the cookie, melt some chocolate chips.
Oatmeal Cookie Dough
You can use your own favorite oatmeal cookie recipe to make this oatmeal cookie shot recipe. If you don't have one, don't worry. You can use my favorite vegan-friendly oatmeal cookie recipe:
Coconut oil/ Vegan Butter
Nothing beats a buttery, chewy, and gooey oatmeal cookie. To make this happen, you will need either coconut oil or vegan butter.
A touch of brown sugar is a must-have when it comes to oatmeal cookie shots. You can opt-in for maple sugar and coconut sugar.
To make sure the oats bind together, you will need some flour. For a gluten-free option, you can try it with oat flour.
Old Fashioned Oats
I like to use old fashioned oats because it makes the cook softer and cooks faster. But you can have your favorite oat type, and it will taste just as delicious.
Flaxseed egg is the perfect alternative to the egg when it comes to vegan baking. It will give your oatmeal cookie a "gluey" texture like an egg. It also helps the ingredients to bind.
