cookies + ice cream in a dish

Regular chocolate chip cookies are enough to make my mouth water.  Chocolate-chip-raisin-oatmeal-cookies?  Holy sister, pass me a spoon.

I’d never eaten cookies in a dish until I went out for dessert one late night in Laguna Beach with my girlfriends Carrie, Kelly, and Julie.  I don’t even remember where we ate, but I do know I ate snarfed a cookie the size of a pan, warm and straight out of the oven, a scoop of melting ice cream on top.

It might have been one of the greatest nights of my life.

I decided to try cookies + ice cream in a dish for myself, with excellent results.  By which I mean I might have eaten seven.

Stop judging me.

Here’s how it all goes down: make your favorite cookies whatever they are, and pop them into a baking dish.  Bake them like you normally would, and when you pull them out of the oven, put a scoop or two of ice cream on top.

I personally love the Mrs Fields Cookies chocolate chip cookie recipe, and all I needed to add was a handful of raisins.  If you don’t like the raisins or the oatmeal, just omit them and put whatever you like into the mix.  These pounds are going on your hips, not mine, so make whatever you want.

Don’t blame me when you lick the spoon.

  1. Erin @ Brownie Bites :

    Looks delicious! I wonder what a warm peanut butter version would taste like – mmmm

    • Allison :

      Peanut butter! My favorite food group. Yes.

  2. suzanne @ pretty swell :

    I am definitely making these. And I will totally eat at least seven.

    • Allison :

      I dare you not to. It’s impossible.

  3. Qui :

    BJ’s Brewery serves those!! so delicious :)
    I’m thinking a peanut butter version is worth a try too.

    • Allison :

      That’s exactly right. I have no idea what the food-food tastes like at BJ’s, but the Pizzoukis were amazing.

  4. Rachel Sue :

    You, my friend, went to BJ’s Pizza and that is what is called a Pizookie. And you’re right. It pretty much is the best thing ever.

    • Allison :

      That’s it! The Pizzokie! I almost died on the spot.

  5. Emily :

    Sounds perfect (except the raisins). :) I was just wondering how to make cookies a more “fancy” dessert.

    • Allison :

      Most people don’t like raisins, I think. Take them out, and you’ve got yourself a fancy fancy dessert.

  6. Christy :

    Add a coating of the “magic shell” on top of the ice cream…adds another texture. Yum.

    • Allison :


      oh my. and add some whip cream on top, you’re all set. YUM.

  7. Rachael :

    Dude. We make these at our place all too often! You can even roll ghetto like and use the Nestle dough from the store — perfect for these little dishes!

    • Allison :

      Dude. I don’t know if I trust anyone else’s dough as much as my own. But you can roll ghetto all you want lady.

  8. Maria :

    My favorite dessert!

    • Allison :

      I had no idea warm cookies in a dish with a scoop of ice cream could be so delicious. What have I been missing all these years?!

  9. Lina :

    These look amazing! Another reason why I need ramekins….

    • Allison :

      We picked these up for almost nothing at an after Christmas sale last year and I LOVE THEM. I use them for everything!

  10. Rachel - A Southern Fairytale :

    My kids love when I make these!

    I think this might be the whole reason that I bought ramekins, but shhhhhh that’s our secret ;-) :-) GORGEOUS pics.
