Gluten Free Pizookie

BJ’s Restaurant Brewhouse makes an incredibly popular dessert called Pizookie, (pizza cookie). See my gluten free pizookie recipe below.) It is a warm, gooey, fresh-baked cookie served in a baking tin, topped with a double scoop of ice cream. You have a choice of several different cookies topped with your choice of ice cream. Most people either have to save room for this decadent dessert or many share it with others because it is such a large portion. Many people go to BJ’s because of this dessert! That’s how good it is!¬† Be careful, though! It’s so good you may not notice you’ve eaten too much until it’s too late!

I not only broke down and made chewy¬†gluten free chocolate cookies but made them with chocolate chips to boot, for a double chocolate delight!

Due to their calorie content, I would not eat these cookies often, but they are a definite treat for guests and special events. These gluten free chocolate cookies are soft, chewy and rich with chocolate. Add walnuts or more chocolate chips. It’s up to you! Look for Pizookie recipe in tomorrow’s post!
