Not Your Grandma's Cookie Shots

Not Your Grandma's Cookie Shots

1 (16.5-oz.) log refrigerated cookie dough (such as Pillsbury)

3/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips

2 tsp. coconut oil (or butter)

2/3 c. Spirits & Spice Vanilla Cream Liqueur, Coffee Cinnamon Cream Liqueur or Tiramisu Liqueur


Preheat oven to 350°. Grease the cups of a muffin tin with cooking spray, then fill each one with a small ball of cookie dough (about a 1/2" slice of the cookie log), pressing down gently to form a well. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden in the center and edges are deeply golden.

As soon as they’re out, use a greased shot glass to gently press down the center of each cookie. Set tray aside to cool for 5 minutes, then remove cookies from tin. Let cool completely.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 25-second intervals, stirring in between, until chips are fully melted. Line the inside of each cookie dough cup with the melted chocolate, place on a baking sheet or platter, and refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened, about 20 minutes.

Pour chilled liqueur into cookie ‘cup’.  It may be helpful to mix liqueur with ice in a shaker and then strain into cookie ‘cup’.  Enjoy!
