Pizzookie

If your looking for the GIVEAWAY...click here
Happy Wednesday!  Here is a fabulous Pizzookie recipe that I got from my cousin, Jennie, and I HAD to share!  This pie is AMAZING and you can pretty much put whatever you want on it...or eat it as is...as you will see later in the post:)

The pie right out of the oven.

All dressed up with ice cream, home made whipping cream and caramel drizzled on top...so worth every single calorie!!

This is what I woke up to the morning after I made this...my 4 year old had helped himself to the pie...like I said...still good just plain!!

Chocolate Chip Pie...aka...Pizzookie

Pie:

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (2-sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts, optional


Whipped cream:

  • 2 pints (4-cups) heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 (9-inch) pie plates; set aside.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating until incorporated. Beat in the vanilla. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, and mix until fully combined. Fold in the 3 cups chocolate chips and, if desired, the walnuts. Divide the dough between the prepared pie plates and smooth the tops with a spatula.
Bake about 30 minutes or until pies are golden and slightly firm to the touch but still soft. If the pies begin to darken too much before they are baked through, cover with foil and continue baking. Let pies cool completely on a wire rack.
While the pies cool, whip the cream and confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form (tips curl). Fold in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate whipped cream until ready to use. Spread the whipped cream over the pies and serve.

  2. I made that recipe a few weeks ago for the first time and LOVED it. Better than the original Toll house pie because no pie crust. A cookie that good doesn't need it.
