Picture of Simple Sugar Cookie Shot Glasses or Cups
I've made these cookie shot glasses for several parties, and they're always a hit! You can really use any dough recipe you'd like and fill them with anything you want, but for this instructable I've used a simple sugar cookie recipe and filled them with iced latte shots.

Step 1: Ingredients & Supplies

Picture of Ingredients & Supplies
For the cookie glasses, you'll need the following:

3/4 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs (or egg substitutes)
1/4 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt (note: If you're not putting something sugary-sweet in these, cut salt in half)
Chocolate chips (optional)

Oven-safe shot glasses/cups/small bowls
Rolling pin
Cookie sheet

Step 2: Making the Cookie Dough

If you're using your own cookie dough recipe, skip to the next step.

Begin by creaming together the margarine and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt to form the dough.

Refrigerate for two hours (this is important).

Step 3: Preparing the Glasses

You can use any size shot glasses, cups or bowls for your molds, but keep in mind that the bigger and taller the mold is, the more likely your cookie is to crack. Also, I've never used shot glasses with painting on them, so I'm not sure how those fare in the oven. I stick to either plain or etched glasses just to be safe.

Wrap your molds in foil, making sure the edges of the foil are tucked inside the glass. This will help you remove the glass later. Set the molds aside on your cookie sheet.

Can you use softened butter instead of margarine?

I don't see why not. I used margarine because I don't eat dairy. If you try these with butter and have any issues or tips, let us know!
How delicious! How well do you think it would work holding hot beverages such as Hot Cocoa!?!

Hmmm... I haven't tried with hot beverages, but I know with cold you can't fill them and leave them sitting around for long. Even with the chocolate coating, they'll eventually soak through if you leave them. If you try it with a hot drink, please let me know your results!
