Just like the one at Bj's Brewhouse, this easy Pizookie recipe is a great dessert for any night of the week. A gooey, molten chocolate chip cookie served up in a skillet just waiting for you to dig in.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the vanilla bean paste. Add the eggs one at a time and mix thoroughly between each addition. Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the flour mixture. Turn off the mixer and fold in the chocolate chips.
Brush an 8” round skillet with melted butter and press the cookie dough evenly into the skillet.
Bake for 25 minutes until the sides are golden brown and crispy. The center will still be a bit gooey but puffed up.
Serve hot or warm.
The center will fall after baking but that’s okay….the ensures a gooey, melty, chocolatey center. This recipe is fun to experiment with. Use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe or sprinkle in some walnuts, chocolate candies or add sprinkles!
