As I said before, my contribution this month is a yummy Grasshopper Pie Pizookie recipe! Have you heard of grasshopper pie? It’s basically Oreo crust filled with mint chocolate chip ice cream. SO YUM! And the green of the ice cream is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day (or really any day of the year). I wanted to come up with a take on the grasshopper pie and I came up with the thought of making it into a pizookie. A pizookie (if you don’t know) is basically a big skillet cookie or “pizza cookie”! They are so very tasty and a family favorite, you can see our popular Easy Peasy Pizookie here! So I created a homemade oreo skillet cookie (um, yum?!) and topped it with mint chocolate chip ice cream and it turned out so good! Seriously yummy, take a look – print it out – or pin for later!

Grasshopper Pie Pizookie
- For the cookie:
- 1 1/3 cups Dutch-process cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- For the topping:
- 1 large scoop mint chocolate chip ice cream
- Sift together the cocoa powder, flour and salt in a large bowl.
- Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar.
- Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla, incorporating each ingredient before adding the next.
- Add the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated, scraping the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
- Divide the dough into 4 parts, filling your skillet or oven-safe bowl with one part of the dough.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until cookie doneness is achieved.
- Serve warm, with a large scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream on top!
And the result of that amazing recipe – a DELICIOUS Grasshopper Pie Pizookie!
