Cook Book Challenge: Week 4

A belated post, and a rushed one (I’m not keeping up with this challenge very well).

This week I turned to one of my most disliked cookbooks. This is one part of a 4 pack of Pilsbury’s “Cookies, Brownies and Chocolate Galore”, this one being the “Cookies, Brownies and Bars” book. Another op-shop find from my dad, and was chosen for this week by my boyfriend.

Don’t get me wrong, there are some great looking things in here. But all recipes advocate using their brand, most of the recipes advocate using something that isn’t easily substituted.

I live in Australia. I can’t get most of it here.

Oh well.

But a cookie pizza? Cinch to sub.

Puppy is peeking.

I substituted the peanuts for almonds, and completely ignored it when they said to let it cool completely: warm, frshly baked cookie with half melted chocolate and marshmallows? Yes please!


Rocky Road Cookie Pizza


1 (20-oz.) pkg. Pillsbury’s Best Refrigerated Sugar Cookies

½ cup chopped salted peanuts

1 cup miniature marshmallows

1 (6-oz.) pkg. (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 12-inch pizza pan with foil; grease foil. Press cookie dough into bottom of foil lined pan

3. Bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely.

4. Remove foil. Cut into wedges or squares. 16 servings.

    • I got super lazy (I was gonna use my favourite sugar cookie recipe, but I can’t remember what book it’s from!) and cheap and bought a choc chip cookie box mix, sieved out the choc chips from it and used it has my base.

      Otherwise, I would have just subbed in any cookie dough recipe. As long as the consistency is not too solid/runny it should be fine.
