Mini Pizookie Recipe – A Deliciously Gooey Chocolate Chip Dessert

This decadent, warm & melty dessert is better than anything you’ve ever had at a restaurant – and it’s super simple to make at home!

This cookie dough recipe was originally baked in a cast iron skillet, but you can easily adapt it to fit any oven-safe dish that will fit it. Just adjust the baking time accordingly if your pan is not quite as small.

Cast Iron Skillet

If you’re a fan of cookie dough and chocolate chips, then this mini pizookie recipe is for you. These gooey, chocolaty cookies bake right in a cast iron skillet to perfection – plus, it’s so easy to make that it makes the perfect dessert for a large group!

Cast iron skillets are known for their crisp crust that other cookware cannot replicate. Furthermore, cast iron holds heat well – which comes in handy when cooking one-pan meals where everything must bake or fry simultaneously.

When stirring-fry or roasting vegetables, a cast iron pan is essential for getting that golden-brown exterior with plenty of crunch. Plus, for something more delicate like meats and seafood, you can even use it on the stovetop to sear them before moving them to an oven-friendly pan.

Elodie Introia recommends cast iron skillets over other cookware due to the way their heat conducts away from the food being seared. She especially loves using them for searing meats like ribeye, which can be challenging when cooked in other cookware.

If you want to reheat some tortillas from the store, this can easily be done in a cast iron skillet without adding oil. Simply heat up the packaged tortillas over medium-high heat for 15 to 30 seconds on each side until they start to brown and smell toasty.

If you don’t own a cast iron skillet, this cookie recipe can still be baked in an oven-safe dish. A round cake pan or ramekin both work great for this recipe; just adjust the baking time so that the edges of your cookie don’t become overly brown and dry.

Finally, for an extra special treat, top off this recipe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy! Pizookies are an irresistible way to create wonderful memories with your special someone.

For this recipe, I bake the dough in a cast iron skillet for that classic crispy crust. However, you could also make it using an oven safe dish such as a large cake pan or other container if desired.

Make this pizookie by preheating your oven to 350 F and spreading the dough evenly into a skillet. Bake until the edges are brown and crisp, remove from oven and allow to cool for 10-20 minutes before serving.

At this stage, you can add additional toppings like chocolate chips, toffee bits, marshmallows or whipped cream. You could even drizzle hot fudge or butterscotch sauce over the top for an extra special touch!

This cookie is so straightforward to make and it’s sure to become a favorite among all ages. Plus, it’s an awesome way to utilize any leftover cookie dough!

Have you ever enjoyed a pizookie from BJ’s Restaurant? You know it’s the ideal combination of deep dish pizza and ice cream. These individual-sized desserts are easy to make, perfect for parties, and sure everyone will enjoy them!

Pizookies are perfect when cooked just until the center is gooey and the ice cream melts right in! Luckily, you can easily make them in your microwave!

Begin by melting the butter. You can do this either in the microwave or over the stovetop; just be sure to let cool before mixing in all other ingredients.

Once the butter has melted, add sugars and mix until thoroughly combined. Beat in vanilla and eggs; then, incorporate flour and baking soda. Lastly, fold in chocolate chips.

Once your dough is ready to bake, pour it into a cast iron skillet. Make sure the dough is spread evenly around the pan and check to see if any edges are beginning to brown.

Bake these cookies for 17 minutes, which should be enough time for the cookie dough to cook through and become a soft and gooey chocolate chip cookie. This recipe can easily be adjusted for individual ramekins or mini pie pans as well.

Once the cookies have cooled, you can serve them immediately or slice and freeze for later. They should stay fresh up to one week in an airtight container or Stasher Bag.

Before serving frozen potatoes, be sure to allow them to thaw. Reheating in the oven or microwave may produce less gooey potatoes but will not have the same fresh taste as freshly made.

Enjoy them as is or top them with an array of toppings for extra enjoyment! Delicious candies like toffee bits, marshmallows and chocolate chips make delicious treats when added to ice cream. For an extra decadent twist, add a few scoops of your favorite ice cream and drizzle it with hot fudge or cherry sauce for an indulgent sundae!

Air Fryer

Air fryers are an efficient way to make healthier homemade food with little effort. They’re a great alternative to traditional deep fryers, too, since they are such versatile cooking devices that can be used for everything from chicken wings and fish to fries and more.

An air fryer is ideal for cooking foods without using much oil, producing crispy roast and crunchy results with similar textures and flavors to traditional deep-fryers.

This makes it a great option for those seeking to reduce fat in their diet, as well as those with dietary restrictions like gluten or veganism.

Are you searching for an easy dessert recipe that can be prepared in your air fryer? Look no further than this mini pizookie recipe – it’s super simple to make and the results are delicious!

Pizookie cookies can be made with either refrigerated or homemade doughs. If you opt for the latter, be sure to monitor the cookies closely so they don’t overbake or develop too dark of a center.

This delicious pizookie recipe calls for flour, white sugar and an egg to form the binding agent. For added fun and flavor, feel free to add in chocolate chips, M&Ms or both!

Once all ingredients are prepped, it’s time to preheat your air fryer. Do this by setting it on bake/roast mode for five minutes at 350 degrees.

Once the 5 minutes have elapsed, remove the basket from the air fryer and place it on a heat-safe surface. Be mindful not to touch anything hot at this stage as you remove it from the air fryer.

Once the cookies have finished cooking, remove them from the air fryer and let cool on a wire rack. You can serve them as is or slice them up and top with ice cream for an indulgent dessert.

Never had an oven baked version of pizookie before, but I am definitely giving it a try next time!
