Mini Individual Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae (Pizzokie)
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine asked me to make pizookies for a dear friend's 40th birthday luncheon. It's my favorite thing to make in this world so the answer was easy....yes! I truly think I could make chocolate chip cookie dough in my sleep.
When I awoke that morning, I decided to experiment. Even though I have dozens of cookie recipes, there's always room for a new method or technique. I love researching and my kitchen is the ultimate playground.
As my friends were eating the pizookies, they wanted to know which Modern Honey chocolate chip cookie recipe it was. They were surprised to hear that it was a brand new recipe. A girl can never have enough chocolate chip cookie recipes!
This Chocolate Chip Pizookie combines elements of three recipes --- Lady's Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie, I Want to Marry You Cookies, and the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie. It is similar to Lady's Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie but this recipe is baked in individual ramekins. This pizookie is heaven in your mouth! Can you sense my passion? I take baking very seriously!
How to make Mini Individual Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundaes (Pizookie)--
- Take 4 Tablespoons of butter and melt it in a skillet until golden brown. This creates a rich toffee, caramel flavor in the cookie dough.
- Cream the remaining 12 Tablespoons of butter with the sugars until light and fluffy. Then add the melted butter and cream for 1 minute longer.
- Instead of melting all of the butter and having to chill the dough before adding the eggs to bring down the temperature, we are adding a small amount of warm melted butter. It alleviates the extra step and still adds that buttery caramel flavor. We are saving time here, people!
- This recipe only calls for 2 cups plus 2 Tablespoons of flour to keep the ratios in the butter and sugar's favor. This isn't a cakey chocolate chip cookie. A pizookie needs to have crispy edges with a warm, gooey center and this Chocolate Chip Cookie sundae recipe fits the bill.
- The dough is placed in small ramekins (look down below to find out where to buy them). This is genius because everyone gets their own mini individual chocolate chip cookie sundae. Chill it for 30 minutes before baking.
- Bake until the edges become nice and golden. You want to have a crisp edge and a slightly underbaked center. The baking time will change depending on how deep your ramekins are. The deeper the ramekin, the longer it takes to bake! After removing from oven, let set up for 5 minutes before adding the ice cream.
- Top with your favorite ice cream from vanilla bean to salted caramel to mint chocolate chip. The options are endless!
Where to buy ramekins?
You can find them at Target, TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Home Goods, WalMart, Amazon, Cost Plus World Market and so many more retailers. My favorite are from World Market because they aren't too deep and have a decorative edge. They have such beautiful ones! Here are some from Amazon -- Round 5-ounce ramekins. You can also use square ramekins.
These Mini Individual Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundaes are going to rock your world. Happy Baking, my friends! xo
Ahh, this is my absolute favorite dessert ever... and I've been looking for an easy way to serve these to a crowd!! I'm ordering the ramekins and making these for my family and extended family this week!!! Thank you Modern Honey!!! <3 <3 <3
Wow, I got huge brownie points for making these! Pun intended lol so light and delicious I was so impressed with how they turned out perfect. As the batter was a different consistency then I was used to I did a test with half the amount in the oven for 15 minutes so I knew 25 was perfect for the amount I had. Thank you so much for this so happy to add to my list of things that I cook great 😊
I have made them several times, and they are always excellent. Since I don't have enough ramekins, I often do a mixture of ramekins and a "brie" serving dish. Delicious. Gonna put coffee ice cream on top today for Valentine's Day.
Are you able to freeze the dough ahead of time?? If so what’s the best way and when do you take dough out before baking.
Question, can you make the cookie dough the day before and take it out if refer about 30 minutes to an hour before baking?
Can I make the cookie dough a day ahead?
Looks awesome, but how many does the recipe make? I need to know how many ramekins to buy! 🙂
Are you pressing and forming the dough into the ramekins or just dropping it like you would on to a cookie sheet??
Can I make this in a 10” cast iron skillet?
How long should I bake it?
If I want to make the chocolate chip dough ahead of time, freezing the dough and bake them the day of the party, would they still be as good?
can i use this recipe and use 3.5" in cast iron skillets? Anything specific on baking instructions? And can i freeze the dough before i bake since i'm transporting the dough about 25 minutes before baking it onsite. Thank you!
Hi! What size ramekins should i use? Thanks!
Hello! Do you remember what size ramekin you purchased? And how many does this fill? Thank you, I'm excited to try these!
Your a rock star , this was delicious! Amazing food!!!
Thank you so much, Jewel! I am so happy that you loved the pizookies. They are one of my absolute favorites too! Have a great day!
These look amazing, but I have a silly question, how much dough do you put in the ramekins? Fill it to the top? Place a ball of dough in the middle? Fill halfway and spread it out to the edges? You can see, I'm a rookie! I can't wait to try these!!
Hi Rebecca! That is not a silly question at all! I will add it to the recipe as well because I am sure there are others wondering the exact same thing. My rule of thumb is that I fill them at least 1/2 way full and no more than 3/4 full. If you fill them halfway, you have more room for ice cream and toppings. If you fill them 3/4 full, the cookies will most likely rise close to the top. It does sink a little after it sets so it gives more room for ice cream. I hope that helps! Feel free to reach out if you have any more questions. Always happy to help! - Melissa 🙂
Yes, that was my question so thanks Melissa
