Foodies pour in for cookie cup

Following on the heels of the wildly popular, and often immitated, cronut, Spring St. pastry maestro Dominique Ansel unveiled his newest creation last Friday — the cookie cup. Ryan Khosravi, a New School writing student who lives on the Lower East Side, left, was the first in line, and as such was given the “faux baguette” to indicate his prime position. For $3 you get what is essentially a chocolate chip shot glass and some organic milk to put in it. You can buy cookies in bulk, plus a small bottle of the milk separately. Ansel actually launched the cookie cup earlier, and not in the South Village, but at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, saying he wanted to create “something fun for the fans.”
