Cheater Style Pizookie Cookie

You see here in the South last week we had an incredible amount of snow!!!  As in almost 2 inches.  Ha!  That’s a big deal for us here in Tennessee, because it rarely happens.  It even stayed around for 2 days and schools were out!

There was lots & lots of sledding.

Lots & lots of snowball fights.

An amazing terrible amount of laundry to do!


4 bottom-less tummies to feed.

Their hunger was non-stop, and thankfully I hit the grocery store before this “snowmageddon” hit our town.

I know you Northern people are laughing at us here in the South.  But snow is very rare for us.  I even had to take a selfie of myself on Instagram. Because I too, am guilty of dreaming of snow!!!

As with all of us, I love a good short cut or a quick meal.  Don’t get me wrong, I really do love to cook, and it truly brings me a lot of joy to feed my family a warm homemade meal.  But I also believe in making things easy for yourself, too!  So this cheater style Pizookie hits the mark for being easy & delicious in about 30 minutes from start to finish!

How to make a Pizookie Cookie – the cheater version


  • Refrigerator cookie dough
  • a handful of M&M's *if desired, but not necessary
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Chocolate topping


  1. Preheat your oven to 350*
  2. Grab a skillet, preferably a cast iron and spread a thick layer of cookie dough into the skillet.
  3. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes* this truly depends on how much cookie dough you use. So the more dough the longer it will take, so watch closely.*
  4. Cool for a few minutes.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream & chocolate syrup if desired.

The beauty of this recipe, is that my husband called me when they were on their way back to the house from sledding down a neighborhood hill.  I was able to assemble this in a matter of 2 minutes + heat up time for my oven, and by the time they came home, got all their snow gear off & changed clothes it was ready!  Extra bonus points for Mom if you serve it with hot chocolate!!!

pizookie for Valentine's

We truly had the best 3 days ~ ever!  It was so fun!  We broke every rule of parenting there was!  We let them sleep where ever they wanted, we ate dessert first, played videos games, had a few impromptu dance parties, and stayed up way too late, and made the best memories.

Snow Kids

We are keeping our fingers crossed for more snow before Winter ends & of course planning on making this pizookie a few more times as well!!!
