Pizookies | Big, gooey pan cookies!

Pizookies from That Skinny Chick Can Bake | Big gooey pan cookies

What is a Pizookie??

If you’re anything like me, Pizookies have not been on your radar. But they will be after today. The term is a blend of the words pizza and cookie…a pan cookie usually served warm with a scoop of ice cream. Nice, eh? Today’s Sunday Supper theme is Man Food, and for those of you who are loyal blog followers, you know my hubby would pick a chocolate chip cookie over almost any other dessert.

Skillet Cookies

When we’re traveling, and exploring a new city, we cannot pass a bakery without a swing past their display cases. Bill does a quick once over, looking for a nut free chocolate chip cookie. More often than not, he’ll leave with a white paper sack with those coveted cookies tucked inside. You may have noticed my blog has more than its fair share of chocolate chip cookies…I’ve tried all the so called “best” recipes, pan cookies and bar cookies. As you can imagine, these babies were quite popular. I’d recommend divvying up the dough into 3 small skillets if you have them. Mine were quite deep and each could really serve 6 people! Just reduce the baking time. And I always underbake my cookies slightly so that the centers are doughy and chewy. Adjust to your liking.

The Recipe

Pizookies #SundaySupper
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ sticks softened butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli chips)
  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Grease two (or three) 6-inch cast iron skillets. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugars till well blended. Add vanilla, eggs and egg yolk, and mix till light and creamy. Stir in flour, salt and baking soda till just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Chilling dough is optional.
  3. Divide dough between prepared pans. Smooth tops. If using only 2 skillets and you have a little too much dough, you can make a couple cookies. Bake 25-30 minutes till edges are browned and centers look cooked. Cool slightly, then serve with a scoop of ice cream. Fudge or caramel sauce optional.
Yield: 8-10 servings
Total time: 1 hour

  1. My heart almost stopped at the sight of your lovely huge pizookies. I imagined the sweet chewy cookie with all this chocolate chips topped with cold ice cream and caramel sauce oh my, this is for sure a very sinful delight :). Love this from the bottom of my heart.

  2. I had never heard of a pizookie before, but I want one!

  3. My crystal ball predicts that Bill is having a blissful Father’s Day! Nice to learn a new word and recipe for a delicious cookie =)

  4. Lynn@Happier Than A Pig In Mud says:

    Yum, your pizookies look great Liz, I’ll bet Bill was thrilled! I see lots of great ideas in this week’s SS menu:@)

  5. Ahhhh! I had never heard of pizookies before, but I love the idea! Genius! 🙂

  6. Wow, your pizookie looks incredible Liz! With the ice cream on top, this looks like the perfect Father’s Day treat, love it!

  7. I thought I had enough chocolate chip cookie recipes, but apparently I don’t! I’m adding this one to my list to try.

  8. Liz, you certainly got me scratching my head with your Pizookies! Am I invited??

  9. Thank you for the intro to a Pizookie — we need these in our lives!

  10. I am all over these pizookies, Liz! Love the name plus the use of the little cast iron skillets! The drizzle of caramel on top is the first tease to dig in! Happy Father’s Day to your Bill too!

  11. I am imagining this as a great Fourth of July dessert with homemade vanilla bean! I am so glad you have educated me on Pizookies!

  12. Have heard tell of the elusive pizookie…never saw it in person. Yours looks GREAT!

  13. 1… this looks amazing, but 2… I love cast iron and I absolutely can not wait to try this out. #Inspired Mmmmm

  14. I just want a spoon to dive right into this gooey cookie!

  15. This looks SO good. There is nothing better than a big, gooey chocolate chip cookie. You totally used those cute little skillets we got at BlogHer Food didn’t ya? 😉 I’m going to try this recipe with mine!

  16. Just another thing to show the awesomeness of cast iron, especially when it is used to bake these tasty pizookies (do I see a new hot trend on it’s way? yes I do!).

  17. Holy heck! Pizookies are now my new obsession! Skillet cookie served warm with ice cream? Yeah, it doesn’t get much better than this! I noticed that there was no #skinnytip associated with this recipe! Jk!

    My husband shares yours obsession with chocolate chip cookies. I am always making them and freezing the dough to have on hand!

  18. I love pizookies and my cast iron collection. A marriage made in heaven! Yum!

  19. I’ve never heard of pizookies either – never. But I’m buying some small skillets, I can promise you, so I can make them. My grandkids would love these – so would I.

  20. I’ve never heard of pizookies but love the name and the merge of pizza and cookies! I really like how these are presented in the pans they’re cooked in and I agree with slightly undercooking the pizza-cookie to allow for a chewy centre. Must get myself some smaller skillet pans! xx

  21. Dad would never get NEAR this in our household! Too many cookie-holics

  22. Liz, you get more and more amazing! My mouth starting watering the minute I laid eyes on the photos. Beautiful!

  23. They sell these at a local brewery in town. But I gotta tell ya. Yours look a thousand times better then theirs. I must try this some day soon.

  24. Lizzy, I have added a new word into my vocabulary today! What will they think of next 🙂 ?

  25. Your husband and I would travel well together. I am always picking up chocolate chip cookies. I just got my first cast iron pan last week. I think I will christian it with a pizookie!

  26. Hi Liz, Pizookie is a new one on me… sounds interesting : )

  27. Oh yeah! My hubby would love this pizookie. He loves chocolate chip cookies, and a deep dish chocolate cookie pizza…oh yeah. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Pizookie. Hilarious! I love it. I knew what it was but I had no idea it had a name. We bought a small iron skillet like that a few years ago but we’ve never used it. The whole thing about having to season it while standing next to the stove with a fire extinguisher scared me off!

  29. Oh, man! Pizookies! Nothing like a warm cookie topped with ice cream, Liz. Now I need me some small iron skillets so I can replicate your delightful dessert!

  30. Um, yes! I’ll take one!

  31. What’s a Pizookie?!!! Ummm pure bliss served warm w melts ice cream! I even have a small cast iron skillet, score!

  32. What an amazing invention. A cookie pizza – hmmm.. I can just imagine cutting it into slices at a dinner party. The guests would certainly be impressed.

  33. The men in my life would love this. And I hope they would share with me. 🙂

  34. oh my gawd, LIZ!!! I can’t wait to make this!!! I am seriously going to make these this weekend!!! love love love and I can even use the cool, little skillet we got from BlogHer Food!!! LOVE this!

  35. A pizza cookie loaded with CHOCOLATE!! It looks seriously rich and tempting, Liz.

  36. Definitely on my radar now! These look amazing Liz!

  37. Yes, I want one! With the ice cream…

    ela h.

  38. I saw the pans at Costco and thought, “What would anyone do with those?” Now I wish I’d bought some. These look terrific!

  39. I have such a weakness for pizookies, these look incredible!

  40. I need some small cast iron skillets. These look amazing, especially with ice cream and caramel sauce.

  41. OMG this looks AMAZING! Though I am scared I would eat the whole thing! Pinning!

  42. Your pizookie lookes amazing! We enjoy this too in our home. Thanks for sharing.

  43. fun dessert!

  44. This is seriously epic!

  45. I love making these so easy and everyone loves them!! Your “cookies” are gorgeous!!!

  46. Wow, I am new to this new fusion idea, love it. I want!

  47. I love that these have all of the crispy edges like a pizza and get all ooey gooey on the inside… YUM!

  48. When we lived in Tucson. There was a restaurant we loved going to that had a skillet cookies. It was always our special treat…….every week……it was that delicious! Your pizookies look oh my word YUM!!! Hugs, Terra

  49. I’ve never heard of a pizookie until now, but these look freaking amazing. Adding to my make & bake list!

  50. Okay so THAT”S a pizooke! I want one!

  51. I’m totally with your hubby- there is nothing better than a chocolate chip cookie! Dying to try this in my little mini-skillet from the conference 😉

  52. Ahhhh. I was wondering what a Pizookie was and then I saw the photo. How fun! Anything baked in a skillet gets a 5 star rating from me!

  53. Now THAT is my kinda cookie!! This looks amazing, Liz!! I have made pan cookies before, but they’ve never looked quite like this!! I’ll have to give your recipe a try and hope mine look as beautiful!! Pinned!

  54. I don’t know if this is man food in particular since I would like to dive into this with my bare hands and not come up for air till it’s all gone!

  55. I haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying a pizookie before but now I can’t wait.

  56. Aha how clever….though I’ve got to go back and read whether it’s an existing term or your own invention, Lizzie?! 🙂 Skillet cookie?! How fantastic of a technique. I use my iron cast skillet 24/7 so it’s always handy!

  57. You are right I had never heard of these before but they are certainly on my radar now! Wow I am in love with these 😀 for so long now I have been wanting a skillet pan and now I have to have one to pig out on these!!!

  58. Liz, this pizookie is the key to my heart, especially with that big scoop of ice cream melting over top. I packed up my cast iron pan when I moved in December but for the life of me, I can’t find it! It’s maddening. I’d better do another sweep of my house so that I can find it and make your beautiful pizookie. I hope you and Bill had a wonderful Father’s Day together!

  59. I just gasped))) looking at this decedent, sinful photo.
    I LOVE! xxx

  60. I could use a pizookie right now! These look amazing!

  61. Lizzy,
    I’m definitely a fan of skillet cookies. I don’t know if I like the name pizookies though.
    Yours look fab,

  62. These are fantastic and definitely meant to be shared!

  63. Never too many CCC’s 😉 LOVE these decadent pizookies!

  64. I don’t know what my boyfriend is going to eat because I am eating the whole thing!! Love it Liz 🙂
