Strawberry Lemonade Cookie Shots Are The Dessert You Never Saw Coming

If there’s one treat that could serve as the poster child of snack food pairings, milk and cookies would easily be the leading candidate. With that in mind and National Lemonade Day on August 20 on the horizon, The Dirty Cookie decided to bake up something even sweeter.

The Dirty Cookie, located in Tustin, California, has managed to pioneer the simple concept of milk and cookies into one of the most unique and tasty dessert trends of the year — shot glass shaped cookies, served with milk inside.

Taking inspiration from their classic cookie shot glass, The Dirty Cookie and Hubert’s Lemonade have teamed up to create the Strawberry Lemonade Cookie Shot, made with Hubert’s Strawberry Lemonade.

Using red cookie dough, lemon zest, Hubert’s Strawberry Lemonade, and the Dirty Cookie shot glass template, this partnership has created an imaginative and mouth-watering delicacy you can only find in Southern California.   

Served with a thin layer of white chocolate on the inside of the shot glass, the Strawberry Lemonade Cookie Shot might be the best thing invented since OG milk and cookies.

Hurry in to The Dirty Cookie, because this after school special will end on September 3.

Dominique Ansel Slinging Canned Sundaes in the Hamptons This Weekend

Canned Sundae

Dominque Ansel, sweet genius and creator of the infamous Cronut, Waffogato, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot, has designed yet another innovative dessert in the form of a sundae in a can. His latest sweet treat is a play on a classic root beer float and features root beer flavored ice cream, stracciatella and mascarpone semifreddo. Because classic just isn’t enough for the pastry chef, this sundae is topped with macerated cherries, toasted marshmallow, and Ansel’s famous miniature meringues.

These limited edition Pop It! sundaes were designed for Lisa Perry and were inspired by Andy Warhol. New Yorkers can find Ansel selling these sundaes for $15 outside Lisa Perry’s East Hampton Boutique this weekend. The price may seem high but the sundae actually serves two and Ansel is donating 20 percent of his sales to City Harvest.

Dominique Ansel Adds Coco-Mango Riz Au Lait and Lime Me Up Tart to Spring Menu


Dominique Ansel is brightening up his Spring menu with the addition of two new fruity desserts.

Mouthwatering as they are visually stunning, the new desserts are a refreshing change from Ansel’s usual sweet creations. The Coco-Mango Riz Au Lait features thin slices of ripe mango arranged almost in a flower design filled with bright mango pearls and coconut rice pudding with mango marmalade.

The new Lime Me Up Tart showcases Ansel’s sweet side while still maintaining a bit of tartness. The dessert features a tart shell that looks more like an eclair, filled with a juniper lime curd topped with a soft lime mousse. The tart is served with a lime wedge on the side along with an edible white chocolate spoon-esque tool filled with brown sugar and sea salt for customers to season their dessert to their individual taste. Pretty fancy.

The new fruit based desserts join seven new pastries on Dominique Ansel’s new Spring menu. The sweet genius is sure to think up some new innovative concoction soon so get to his bakery while these desserts are still around.
