Chocolate Chip Pizookie

Chocolate Chip Pizookie! My favorite dessert by far.

Are you looking for an easy make-ahead dessert? I am obsessed with the pizza cookie, or ‘Pizookie.’ My obsession with these began in college at CU Boulder thanks to BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse.

I found these cute mini cast iron skillets from World Market, but they carry them at Target and Bed Bath and Beyond also.

I found a great recipe for pizookies from Martha Stewart that doesn’t require an electric mixer. You can make any flavor cookie you like! Don’t forget to serve with a scoop of ice cream (or 2) and for those of you with kiddos, maybe a few sprinkles!

February Means Love

Okay, so I don’t know about you, but I am so excited that we have finally finished January and moved into February. It is time for hearts, valentines, love, and everything PINK. To get in the Valentine spirit, I decided to make some festive Blondies while also getting out a few of my Valentine decorations.

I have my mise en place and I am ready to get going on some baking. I followed the Food Network’s Blondies recipe and instead of mixing in M&M’s, I just topped the batter with them (prior to baking) because I bought larger sized M&M’s since they were ‘conversation M&M’s’. I baked them for 25 minutes at 375 degrees and voila! You’ve got yourself a Valentine treat 🙂

Here I am trying to get the perfect picture and focus in on what really matters, but my pup, Paisley looked too cute to crop out. I took cookie cutters to the Blondies for a special Valentine touch and filled my cute candy dishes (A gift from my mom years ago but I found them in white!) with some festive jelly beans. And what is a post without baking aftermath…
