If you don't already know, a Pizookie is a large cookie (as in a whole batch) that is cut into triangles like a pizza. Mr. Schwartz didn't believe me that Pizookie was a real thing. Until we were watching an award show on E! and Ryan Seacrest said that he would reward himself Pizookie that night. Nice that he didn't believe his wife, food blogger, but I guess whatever Ryan Seacrest says, goes. Solid.
This Pizookie is out.of.this.world. I found the cookie dough recipe
one of my favorite blog, How Sweet It Is. Oh gawd, she is hilarious and fires out tasty recipes every day. Check her blog out, she is freaking fantastic.
Anyway, make this Pizookie. Please, I beg of you. It stays fantastic for a few days if it lasts that long. I would just cut off a wedge, pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds and holy mackerel, Pizookie heaven. It will make your day, promise.

Anyway, melt the butter in a pan.
Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Pizookie
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk (at room temp)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325
Heat a small saucepan on medium-low heat and add butter. Whisk until butter melts, continue to whisk, the butter will get foamy, continue to whisk just until little brown bits appear at the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat immediately, the butter can burn very quickly. Set aside and let cool for about 10-15 minutes, until the butter comes to room temperature.
Once butter has cooled, add to a large bowl. Whisk in sugars until smooth and caramely in color, then add in the egg and egg yolk. Mix again until combined, then add in vanilla extract and mix. Add in flour, baking and soda and salt, and mix until a dough forms. The dough may be crumbly but continue to mix –using your hands if needed – until it comes together. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spray a large skillet or baking dish, I used a 12 inch cast iron skillet, with cooking spray. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the pan. Bake for about 30 minutes (longer if using a smaller pan) until the edges are set and the middle is still a little doughy.
Let cool (if you can) for about 15 minutes and cut into pie/pizza slices. Serve with ice cream and cold milk.
