Menu Description: "A freshly baked, hot out-of-the oven, rich and delicious cookie topped with 2 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and served in its own deep dish. Your choice of chocolate chunk, white chocolate macadamia nut, peanut butter or oatmeal raisin walnut."

Visit one of the 83 BJ's restaurants located in the West and Southwest and you'll likely find many giddy diners digging down into one of these deep-dish cookie desserts. Even though the restaurant is known for great Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas and a fantastic selection of custom-brewed beers, it's the Pizookie at the end of the meal that gets the most drools. There are four varieties to choose from on the menu, so I'm giving you the BJ's Pizookie recipe for all four below. Each formula makes enough dough for one giant cookie, and BJ's cookie skillet recipe is so easy that you could make more than one with just a little extra effort. You might think that the cooking temperature of 475 degrees is extreme for a cookie, but since BJ's is a pizza joint, these puppies get cooked in cranked-up pizza ovens, and it works great. Not only will you have your cookie done in only 5 to 7 minutes, but also it'll be nice and brown on top, and slightly gooey in the center—all good things for a cookie, right? The restaurant uses 6-inch deep-dish pizza pans, but you can bake your clones in any cake pan or pie pan with a bottom that is 6 to 7 inches across. Also try my clone recipe for BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse Pale Ale Chili.

OMGosh! This is fantastic and quick! I've made them twice already. What's not to love? If they aren't the best you've ever had, you're not doing it right!

This is great! I like making cookies but they usually don't all get eaten up, so this is perfect. Great for snacking too, just make one, cut it into quarters (or halves) and perfect satisfaction for that cookie craving.
