Red Miso Buttercream

Cronut creator Dominique Ansel has set his sights on reinventing the chocolate chip cookie. Visitors to the South by Southwest Interactive conference will get to try his cookie shots: edible cookie shot glasses that are filled with milk. If you're not going to Austin, here are five ways to upgrade the chocolate chip cookie at home.

1. Add Bacon. Bacon gives cookies a hint of smoky flavor and delicious crunch.

2. Make it an animal. These porcupine cookies feature pretzel-stick "quills."

3. Use candy. You don't have to wait for Halloween to enjoy irresistible cookies made with candy.

4. Stuff it. Nutty chocolate-chip cookies are great sandwiched with silky chocolate ganache.

5. Add umami. Chef Erik Bruner-Yang tops his delicious cookies with a rich, sweet-savory miso buttercream.
