A cookies and cream pizookie is an Oreo skillet cookie you won't be able to resist. Perfect for individual sized desserts and a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top.
We love Oreos, cookies, and all things sweet (doesn't everybody?) But one of our favorite desserts comes from a local restaurant called BJ's. There they have the best homemade sodas and pizookies. While going out isn't always an option, staying in and making our own tasty desserts can be.
For Christmas this past year my husband bought me a lot of cast iron bakeware and I just knew I wanted to use the mini skillets for pizookies! Personal sized skillet cookies are such a decadent dessert and one we can all agree on.

Egg- You'll want to use an egg for binding the dough together.

🍴 Recipe Tips
Making this cookies n cream pizookie is fast and easy if you don't mind waiting for the dough to chill. While you don't have to chill the dough, I find that the flavors are always better in slow chilled cookie dough because they have longer to concentrate.
You can use any variety of Oreo cookies depending on what you have on hand or are looking for. Their Java chip ones or mint Oreos would taste fabulous in this recipe.
As the cookies bake, they will puff up slightly so it's important not to get them too full or there won't be room for ice cream without it sliding off the top of the cookie.
The cookies should look done around the edges and still be soft but not glossy in the center once finished baking.
And as always, be careful with the hot cast iron pans. They retain heat very well and should be handled with care and safety.
Yes, you can prep the dough for this oreo pizookie recipe and keep it covered in the fridge up to 2 days in advance. You can also bake the Oreo pizookies and after they've cooled, keep them well covered at room temperature for up to 3 days. Pizookies are better when warm and fresh from the oven so you might want to reheat or bake before serving.
Yes, you can cook these skillet cookies over a campfire. Keep it out of direct heat and cook until the edges look set and the cookie looks mostly firmed. Covering the tops with foil for a few minutes can help to distribute the heat and cook more evenly around the tops of the cookies.
