Pizooki Knock off

Ok, Daddy F is not a big sweet eater but he LOOOOVES the pizookies they make at BJ's Restaurant. I mean, he is kinda obsessed. Like I am with butter cream icing. Yeah - it's that bad. So as a little Valentine's Day treat I decided to try and make my own at home. I think it was a success as the kids and I got to eat about 3 bites!!


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375F.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to combine. Set aside. In another bowl using an electric mixer, cream butter with sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixer and combine. Fold in the chocolate chips.  Smush about half the batter into the bottom of a 9 inch pie pan ( should be about half an inch in thickness). Bake in the oven for about 20 mins or just until middle is set and edges are golden brown. You may want to put some foil over the outside edge if it starts to get too brown and your center isn't cooked quite yet. Once it it done, take it out, let it cool for about 5 mins and then top with vanilla ice cream. Eat immediately!! 

Our Ratings: 

Mama F: 9 - Yup, just like the real thing! It is VERY rich I seriously couldn't eat even like half of it if I tried!! 

Daddy F: 10 - The outside was nice and crispy and the center gooey!! Nice to know we can make it at home and save a few bucks!! 

Fuller Kids: 7 - Our 18 month old was happy to make a big mess while she ate her treat. Of course, our 4 year old chocolate hater said next time we should make it with raisins. 

Lucky the Dog: 1 - Thought the ice cream was yummy. Was not allowed any chocolatey goodness. :(
