When the Cronut man unleashed milk-and-cookie shots at SXSW six months ago, everyone promptly freaked out, then everyone outside New York resigned themselves to never getting one. Well, mope no more: the gal behind Half Baked Harvest has shared a recipe for her very own cookie shots, and you can somehow justify eating these first thing in the morning.
The "breakfast cups", as their creator calls them, are essentially oatmeal chocolate chip cookies baked in a muffin pan. But once you pour on a helping of milk, they morph into shot vessels perfect for milk. Or whiskey, if you're Mickey Rourke. If you still aren't sold, staring at this mesmerizing GIF will change your mind:
So will it be another lame bowl of cereal or milk-and-cookie shots for your breakfast tomorrow? We're not saying the choice is obvious, except it is.
