Recipe Fridays!


Pizookies

This is genius. When my sister came to visit over Memorial Day weekend, we stopped to eat at this place on 2nd St called BJ's, and had one of their odd-named Pizookie's: basically a deep dish cookie with ice cream fabulousness. Then, I found this recipe that references the same thing, and I knew it was kismet;)

Ingredients
160 g (3/4 c) Light Brown Sugar
160 g (3/4 c + 1 T) Granulated Sugar
255 g (1 c) unsalted Butter
2 large Eggs
1 t Vanilla Extract
1 t Sea Salt
370 g (3 c) all-purpose, unbleached Flour
1 t Baking Soda
350 g (.75 lb) Dark Chocolate (cut into 1/2″ chunks or smaller)
4″ ramekins (or other small baking dish)

Vanilla Ice Cream

Preheat oven to 375° F (350° for convection ovens)


1. Beat together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla extract, and sea salt.


2. Sift together the flour and baking soda. Stir into batter, then add chocolate chunks and stir until well mixed.

3. Fill ramekins 1/2″ deep with raw cookie dough. Place ramekins on sheet pan and put in middle rack of oven. Bake 12-18 min., or until top starts to turn golden brown. (remember you want them slightly undercooked, but not too doughy.)

4. Remove from oven and place each ramekin on a napkin (this allows you to hold the hot dish as you eat your dessert delight.) Top with a couple scoops of ice cream. Grab a spoon and enjoy.

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com
