Hi friends! It’s likely my favorite dessert on planet Earth – the Pizookie. If you know of it, it’s probably from the likes of BJ’s Brewery or Oregano’s. Both delicious, both high on my list. But did you know that they are also so very easy to make at home? We had a night alone this weekend while the kids were at the grandparents, so I whipped up a couple as a sweet treat for me and the hubs. And I posted it on Instagram, and you all asked for the recipe! PS – I also showed a sneak peak on Vine, the new 6-second video sharing app, HERE!

|Easy Peasy Pizookie||
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt (I use sea salt)
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
- Cream together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large bowl with hand or stand mixer.
- Add eggs and beat until well mixed.
- Add in flour mixture slowly until completely blended.
- Here I add dough to 1 pt sized Pyrex baking dishes, which work perfectly for the pizookie. You can also use small cast iron or other glass baking dishes.
- Since my husband likes white chocolate and I like milk chocolate, I then add chocolate chips to the top of the dough. You could always incorporate them into the dough first if that is what you prefer.
- Bake the pizookies at 375 until golden brown around the edges, approximately 18 minutes.
- Remove from the oven; the center will be somewhat mushy still, but perfect for a pizookie!
- Serve with a scoop of ice cream on top and you’re good to go!
This is how they look before going into the oven…
And here’s how the goodness turns out…
Top it with some ice cream and you’re golden!
That’s it! If you love a good pizookie, I hope you’ll give this a try! Let me know how it turns out for you!
