My son and his wife took me to dinner at Firehouse Pizza in Centerville, Utah last winter. After a terrific pizza, they treated me to a “Fazookie” - the Firehouse version of the Pizookie. It was served hot from the oven in a fun little cast iron skillet (that kept the cookie piping hot - UNlike the little cake pans used at BJ’s).
Sometimes when I’m thinking I ‘deserve’ dessert - I think back to that little Fazookie. When I was shopping recently, I ran into some miniature Lodge cast iron skillets. I couldn’t resist picking up a few. Lodge cast iron pans no longer need to be ‘seasoned’ as older cast iron used to. Simply wash in hot water (no soap), dry thoroughly, and use it to your heart’s content.
To plan ahead for easier Fazookies, refer to the tutorial (above) on how to freeze and store cookie dough - making it pretty easy to have this treat ANY time.
This is the ultimate “put-the-kids-to-bed-then-enjoy-some-comfort-food” treat/reward for a Friday or Saturday stay-at-home movie night.
