Late last night, after packing into techie panels and indie film premieres, the crowds at SXSW queued more than two city blocks for a first taste of pastry wizard (and Cronut creator) Dominique Ansel’s newest invention, the milk-and-cookie shot.
The dessert, a deceptively soft and gooey chocolate chip cookie shaped into a shot glass holding a slug of ice-cold milk, raises a few questions: How does it work? And how do you eat it? Is it as good as it looks?
So we went to Dominque himself to get answers. He gave us the bittersweet-chocolate scoop and let us try one. See for yourself below.
