If you’re wondering what a Pizookie is, it’s the famous dessert originally from BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse. As Wikipedia describes it:
“[A Pizookie is] a fresh baked cookie (white chocolate and macadamia nut or chocolate chip), with vanilla ice cream, served in a pizza style pan.”
In simple arithmetic, it’s Pizza pan + Cookie = Pizookie!
Tonight, I tried the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pizookie. Very easy to make.
Here are the ingredients:
- 2-1/2 Tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/4 Cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 Tablespoon beaten egg
- 1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
- 3 Tablespoons white chocolate chunks (or chips)
- 3 Tablespoons chopped macadamia nuts
- 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
Combine ingredients for cookie of your choice up to, but not including, the flour, in bowl and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until smooth. Add flour and baking soda (plus oats and cinnamon if making the oatmeal raisin walnut cookie) and stir well by hand. Stir in remaining ingredients then press the dough into a small buttered pie pan, cake pan or 6-inch deep-dish pizza pan.
Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until cookie begins to brown. Cool for a minute then add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream, and serve.
Serves 2 🙂
