Sometimes an idea comes along that’s so radical, you can’t even it control it. It takes on a life of its own. I had an idea like this once, it was called
Fluffernutter Cookie Pizza
You see that monster over there. See it? I made it because I love two things in this world: pizza and fluffernutters. And it was delicious!
Oh, by the way, happy end of unResolution Month’s Dessert Week. I hope over the past six days, you have gotten as sugared out as I am, but if you’re not, I know you will be after you make this cookie pizza. However, before we get to the recipe, you may be asking yourself what, exactly is a fluffernutter? (And frankly, if you’re under 12 or a male you might be laughing about the name, which is okay. I still do.)
A fluffernutter (click on the link for my recipe for them) is a sandwich made from peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. They are almost sickenly sweet, but oh wow are they good all by themselves. However, never one to let well enough alone, especially not for unResolution Month, I decided to take the only healthy part of the fluffernutter, the bread, which was just empty fiber anyway, and swap it out for a sugar cookie. Then I added some chocolate sauce. Then I ate it. And so can you.
Fluffernutter Cookie Pizza Recipe
So the theme for this year’s unResolution Month Dessert Week was recipes you didn’t have to know much baking to make. Guess what, this final day of Dessert Week is no different. We are finishing strong on the lazy baker thing! All you have to do is buy sugar cookie dough, bake it, smear it with peanut butter and fluff while it’s still warm, top it and devour. You ready?
You will need:
- 1 container of store bought sugar cookies
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup marshmallow fluff
- chocolate syrup
- chocolate chips
- peanut butter chips
First things first, let’s prepare the “crust” for baking. What I want you to do is take the sugar cookie dough and roll it out like a pizza dough. I find that the sugar cookies that come in a rectangular package and are meant to be pulled apart and baked work best for this.
Once the dough is rolled out, bake it per the package instructions.
Once it’s done baking, wait about a minute to let the cookie set and spread out the peanut butter for the “sauce.” If you don’t do this quickly, you will regret it. The heat will partially melt the peanut butter and make it easy to spread. If you wait, it will be harder to evenly spread the peanut butter.
Next, top with fluff. Then spread on the peanut butter and chocolate chips and the chocolate sauce.
Then you know what to do. Enjoy!
