A giant, medium rare chocolate chip cookie topped with ice cream and eaten with a spoon. It’s baked in and eaten out of a deep dish. It’s everything a cookie wants to be and more.
My friends and I had a girls night in a few month’s back: here. We wore PJ’s, laughed until our stomach hurt, watched movies, and most importantly, ate until we thought we couldn’t eat anymore. Those are always the best nights right? We all had so much fun that night that we decided to make an effort to have a girls night in tradition.
One thing better than a cookie is a GIANT cookie. My friends and I had another Girl’s Night and this time we made something extra spectacular… a PIZOOKIE. You may wonder… what exactly is a “pizookie”?
Well my friends, if you are confused about what/where the word “Pizookie” even comes from, don’t worry, for a long time I was too. “Pizookie” is a combination of the words pizza and cookie. Pizza because of the size and cookie because that’s what it is. If you haven’t had one of these then you sure are missing out! We used to get them all the time when we lived in Las Vegas at BJ’s Pizza and Brewery. There isn’t a BJ’s Restaurant near us anymore so we have recreated the famous BJ’s Pizookie ourselves.
As far as taste goes: a pizookie is a giant medium-rare chocolate chip cookie, typically served in a deep dish (I use a pie dish). The cookie is baked at 475 degrees for about 15 minutes. That may seem hot for a cookie, but the oven has to be hot enough for the outer ring to crispify while the inside remains fluffy and doughy.
One of my favorite things about a pizookie is that it’s served family style… and you need is some spoons and a deep dish. As soon as it comes out of the oven, it’s topped with two scoops of ice cream… at this point you will feel like you want to dive in head first… Example A:
But no worries! There’s no waitin’ on this cookie to cool because the cool ice cream, counteracts the sizzlin’ cookie… so take a huge spoonful and enjoy!

Keywords: bake cookies – bars dessert Super Bowl birthday
Ingredients (serves 6)
- About 24 to 30 ounces of cookie dough
- 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- 9-inch baking pan
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. If you are a little scared to set your oven temperature to this high of a temperature, 450 degrees works as well you will just have to cook the cookie for a couple of extra minutes.
Spray a 9-inch round dish with cooking spray. I use a pie dish, but a cheesecake or cake pan work as well.
Empty the cookie dough into the pan and press the cookie dough into an even layer.
Bake the cookie for 15-20 minutes until its golden brown. Be careful not to cook it too long. It tastes better a little more on the doughy-side rather than crispy.
As soon as the cookie comes out of the oven, plop 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream on top. Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla is my favorite.
Take a spoon, dig in and enjoy!
