We had a family activity night to try to beat the monotony of the week quarantined at home and I decided we needed to try a new dessert. None of the kids had ever had a Pizzookie before so I decided that would be a great night to try one! It is essentially chocolate chip cookie dough pressed into a cast iron skillet and baked until brown on the edges while still gooey in the middle.
Served with hot ice cream, it is a cookie addict’s worst nightmare. Let’s say that it went over so well with everyone, that we all had belly aches from the second helping we should have saved for the next day. Definitely a raging success.
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, try it in a pie pan! Don’t let that stop you from enjoying a piece of this heaven. Just be sure to save the second piece for the next day. Your stomach will thank you for it.
Pizzookie (Dairy, egg and nut free)
A Pizzookie is essentially a giant chocolate chip cookie baked in the oven in a cast iron skillet, and served like a pizza or a pie hot, gooey and topped with ice cream. If you love chocolate chip cookies, or cookie dough especially, you will love a Pizzookie! This version is free of dairy, egg or nuts. You can eat it and the dough without worrying about getting salmonella poisoning. To be honest, this is the exact same recipe as the chocolate chip cookie recipe, but prepared in a way that makes the taste seem completely different. Give it a try for a fun twist on a classic cookie.
