The discovery of the Pizookie Party Platter

Cookie pie with chocolate chip cookies, oreo cookies, etc, plus ice cream on top

I’ve seen lots of creations online, no doubt, but this one is actually new to me! It’s created in a restaurant instead of being an at-home compilation.

BJ’s Restaurant sells a variety of “pizookies” or “cookie pizzas.” One example is a chocolate cookie made with chunks of Ghiradelli chocolate, topped with a couple scoops of double chocolate ice cream (also with chunks of Ghiradelli).

Another is Red Velvet Pizookie with hot red velvet cake topped with vanilla bean ice cream in its own deep dish.  There’s also a standard chocolate chip variety, a strawberry shortcake style one, and a trio that includes a lovely looking white chocolate macadamia nut and peanut butter pizookie.

But the king of the pizookies? It’s the party platter that you see above which can actually vary because you can choose any four of their pizookie varieties and partner them up for one mega platter of cookie goodness.

I can’t quite tell what the two top pizookies are in the above  picture, but I don’t even care. I want them all!

Also, I kind of wonder what the recommended serving size is for this….not because I would follow it, but because I’m sure I’d get weird looks if I ordered this at a table with only two people…. and I could take the cookie portion home with me, but that would be a waste of ice cream!

Cthulhu desserts –

H.P. Lovecraft's Cthuhlu made out of a blueberry pie for dessert with tentacles like an octopus

Is that pie not amazing!!?? Even if you have no idea who Cthulhu is, you can see that it took a lot of effort to pull that pie off. Nicely done, Sandy Yoo!

I actually had a hard time finding some other great Cthulhu creations because so many of them were simply hot dogs or vienna sausages, cut to look like octopuses, and then not a whole lot else. I was going to do a top 5 or 10, but after digging around for a while, I’m rather disappointed. :(

Look at this one, though:

Cinnamon snickerdoodle 3D cookie shaped like Cthulhu

It’s called Snickerthulhu and it looks like the original has been moved unfortunately. The side view of it is pretty impressive!

If you know of some other truly amazing Cthulhu creations, send them my way. I thought I’d find some awesome cakes, but they just aren’t cutting it. :(

Pi Day is coming- The best apple ‘pi’ with number filling

Pi Day apple pie with numbers on the crust and apple number slices inside for filling

I have been around the interwebs for my fair share of “pi days”* and have seen a lot of awesome pies created for the day. I’ve even made my own pies on that day, because that’s what you’re supposed to do, right?

But this one takes the cake (er, pie?) for the best pi-related one. It goes above and beyond just putting the pi numbers on top and instead, fills the center with pie shaped apple slices, too. How fun would that be to slice into after already being impressed that there are numbers on top and expecting a regular pie inside?

From what I hear, A Periodic Table blogger Shannon is pretty darn good cook, too, and she’s got a lot of tips for how to make your own pie taste amazing, so I’m pretty sure this not only looks awesome, but would taste awesome, too. Usually when I see creations like this, I want to make my own and it inspires me to do something similar or related somehow, so it’s not an exact copy. I have no idea how I could possibly improve this one, though, so I’m just going to leave it to her. <3


*March 14 is considered “Pi Day” because the first 3 numbers of ‘pi’ are 3.14….which looks like the date “3-14” or “March 14.” Just wait for the celebration in a few years when it’s 3.1415….
