Pazookie | Recipe

A few weeks ago I participated in the holiday cookie exchange at LoveFeast Table and thought I would share my Pazookie with you guys today.  No, no… it's not misspelled, it's a Pizookie in a jar, so I called it a PAZOOKIE. I came up with it for a fun, out of the box cookie exchange idea, but I think it would also be great for a cozy New Years celebration… So, here you have it, the Pazookie!


You may have heard of a Pizookie… a chocolate chip cookie baked in a pan and is kind of like a gooey, chocolate pizza.  Well, a Pazookie is a similar treat, however it is baked in a jar.  I am a big fan of creating fun treats in jars.  They are portioned perfectly and provide a fabulous blank canvas in order embellish your fun treat.  Here are some of the other treats in a jar from WhipperBerry…

Today, I thought it would be fun to create a fun little neighbor treat that will make your friends and neighbors feel extra special this holiday season… A Pazookie kit!  This is a basket with full Pazookies and a pint of ice cream to crown their tasty ooey-gooey treat.

Before you can start this project you will need to purchase some 4 oz. jelly jars.  I found mine on Amazon because they tend to be seasonal items in most stores, and this is not the season.  Next you will need to mix up a batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookies.  You can use your's or here is my recipe that I slightly modified from the basic Toll House recipe…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 c. of all-purpose flour

1 t. baking soda

1 t. salt

1 c. soften unsalted butter

3/4 c. sugar

3/4 c. packed brown sugar

1 t. vanilla extract

2 large eggs

12 oz. package of your favorite chocolate chips

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 375° F. and spray 12 jars with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.  Fill jars 1/2 way with cookie dough.

BAKE for 11-13 minutes, the cookie dough will not be baked completely and will have a blonde not browned top.  Remove from oven and let cool.

Once the Pazookies are cool you can package them up and get them ready for your friends and neighbors.  I created these fun jar toppers that you can print, cut out and place in the lid to add some flair…

Tie some fun yarn or ribbon around the jar and then you have a great presentation that everyone will LOVE.  In the basket or bag with the jars include a pint of vanilla ice cream and they will then have a complete Pazookie Kit.

Along with the Pazookie kit you can include this printable instruction card so that they know how to make their tasty treat. Click on the image to download the printables.

Likewise you can click on the image below to print the labels for your jars.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous and safe Holiday season!

    Oh My Heck!!!! I am on a Mason Jar binge right now! I haven’t even thought about baking in them and giving that as a gift. I have been shoving everything else I can think of in there though! Those little ones are so cute, I can’t stand it!!! =)

    What an awesome, awesome idea! You’re so creative and I love the additional printables for these, too. Pinned ya *Ü*

    I wonder if these would do well in the freezer after cooled to give to friends as their birthdays came up?!?

    Do you think these would do good to ship overseas. My husband gets his packages usally 2-3 weeks after being sent. Please let me know :) Thank you!!

      You know, I’m not sure. I would actually worry about them becoming moldy because the jar holds in the moisture. I’m going to say, I don’t think it would be a good idea. Sorry!

    I love, love, love this idea, I am going to make these for an upcoming baby shower that I am hosting. I am trying to print these beautiful labels that you have so graciously provided for us. But they are not working!! :(. They are printing larger than necessary. Any suggestions on how I can get them to print correctly?

    Hi, I followed you from Pinterest. I am going to make these for my daughter’s volleyball team dinner. So cute! One question, when baking the jars, do you have to put the jars themselves on a cookie sheet or can you place the jars right on the oven racks? Sorry, I just never put mason jars in the oven so I am a bit nervous :). Thank you so much for sharing!

    Sounds good…having made pizookies in ramekins a million times (rounding up haha), my only suggestion would be that you include in the instructions to broil them for a minute or two after they finish in the microwave. That slightly browned, crispy top is *out of this world*, for sure!! I'm a little obsessed haha XD All in all, great idea! Love the gifting-in-jars!!!!
