Pizookie time in Tulsa, Oklahoma!

If you are asking yourself “what is a Pizookie” get ready for a ridiculously awesome dessert.  BJ’s Brewery is where I first discovered this wonderful goodness.   For the past 3 months I have been trying really hard to not eat sweets (except for Dove Dark Chocolate…yum).   I caved.  BIG time.  This was well worth it.  

I found the recipe on food.com.  I changed some things to make it fit me...aka added more chocolate.  

The Goods:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons milk(not pictured...my bad)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of whatever kind of chips you want
  • vanilla ice cream (optional or I like to say necessary)


And the best part...


Preheat oven to 375

Sift together the flour, salt, soda.

Melt the butter in the microwave.  In a mixing bowl add both sugars and melted butter.  Cream together on medium speed.  Add the egg, egg yolk, 2 tablespoons milk, and vanilla extract to the sugar-butter mixture. Mix until combined. (sorry these pictures don't match at all but I couldn't help include both...I really liked the milk one but it is over exposed.)


Slowly add flour until well combined.  Fold in chips. 

 

Place half of the dough in one nine inch greased pie pan.   Spread the dough to the edges with a spatula.  Repeat with the other half. 


Bake for 15ish minutes.  Yes, I said 15ish because this depends on how “well done” you want your Pizookie.  I cooked mine for 17 minutes and it was just barely gooey.   



I can not put into words how wonderful the Pizookie tasted.  Looking back on the pictures makes my mouth water.  Luckily, the leftovers are still in Tulsa so I won't be tempted again :)  I am a little embarrassed of my picture taking ability for this post...I forgot my camera so I had to borrow Sean's.  The camera was dying the entire time, so I had to work fast (which turned out not so great)!  Lighting is a huge aspect when taking pictures and I couldn't seem to get that right.  While eating my Pizookie, I discovered Pioneer Woman's tutorial on how to take food pictures(wish I would of read it BEFORE making this).  It is awesome!  You should check it out, right after you make and eat the Pizookie :)

Grace, peace, and be sure to enjoy some sweets!
