Pazookie [Cookie in a Jar]

Happy March everyone!!

Crazy--time is flyin'. Now if we can get the weather to cooperate I will love it even more.

Have you ever had a pizookie--you know a gooey cookie cooked on a pizza pan and topped with some delicious ice cream?  I think they are fabulous, a giant chocolaty goodness.  It's all about doing the normal different.

I love jars for that reason.  Take the normal everyday food, put it in a jar and it magically becomes an amazing bite of deliciousness.

I love the look of food in jars plus, with a jar, everyone has their own serving. My kids went wild over these.  Their own jar, with a cookie in it, and with a scoop of ice cream.  Their world couldn't get much better than that. Love it!  

Pazookie [cookie in a jar]

12 (4 oz) jelly jars (I get mine from Amazon)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
12 oz. package of your favorite chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. and spray your jelly jars with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.  Fill jars 1/2 way with cookie dough.

3. Bake 11-13 minutes. You want the cookie dough to have a blonde not browned top and be not be cooked completely.  Remove from oven and let cool. Serve with ice cream and enjoy!
