Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart

Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart

Have you ever had the pleasure of eating a Pizookie?  It’s served at a restaurant chain called BJ’s.  It’s basically a freshly baked, hot out of the oven, rich and delicious cookie topped with two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and served in its own deep dish.  It is sinfully, amazingly, beyond good.  Like, worth 10 extra trips to the gym good.

That concoction was totally my sin-spiration for this bit of goodness that the kids and I whipped up before heading over to the Nejuarh’s house for a swim play-date.  I figured we would earn the right to eat all these calories.

I tried with all my might to make it like 5% healthier than I imagine the real deal to be.  I threw in some whole wheat flour, used less butter than usual and cut the slices thin.

But let’s face it, this ain’t diet food.  It’s just deliciousness.  And it has earned me a place in the hearts of all the young swimmers in attendance at the party.  Tastes just as good straight up as it does with ice cream and hot sauce.  Just sayin’.

    This looks great! I wonder, could I use all regular flour? I do not have wheat flour.
