birthday boy dessert request #1 : pizookie
My sweet hubby had two birthday dessert requests and here's one of them - a chocolate chip pizookie. If you're from California you should be well acquainted with the BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse (ironically they serve "Chicago style" deep dish pizza...don't be fooled it's not authentic) pizookie and all their wonderful cookie flavors. A pizookie is a freshly baked cookie served warm from the oven in a pizza style dish and topped with loads of cool delicious vanilla ice-cream.
For my homemade version I used an entire recipe of ATK's Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie and pressed it into a baking dish. Imagine the second picture covered with scoops of vanilla bean ice-cream and then imagine 10 people devouring it in a matter seconds. It went so fast I didn't even have time to take a picture. ;P
