Peanut Butter Cookie Pizza

It is our daughter Alison's birthday today. She shared this recipe with me and now I am sharing it here on her special day. This is enough cookie dough for two pizza pans. I only made one and used the other half of dough to make 2 dozen regular sized cookies.

Cookie Dough:
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Cream together shortening, butter, and sugars, until very creamy.
  2. Mix in eggs and peanut butter.
  3. Add combined dry ingredients and stir until blended.
  4. Pat 1/2 of the dough into a 13" pizza pan.
  5. Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 12 minutes. Allow to cool.
Toppings for 1 pizza pan:
  • 250 gr / 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 - 4 serving size package of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons skor bits
  1. Once cookie crust is cooled, spread with softened cream cheese.
  2. Whisk together chocolate pudding and milk, allow pudding to set before spreading over cream cheese layer.
  3. Whip cream with icing sugar and vanilla until firm peaks form and carefully spread over chocolate layer.
  4. Sprinkle skor bits over top and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. Serves: 12 to 16


  1. What a great idea! Definitely will give this one a try!

  2. Are you sure it is 1 1/2 CUPS of baking soda????? That is a LOT!

    1. I'm SURE ITS NOT 'CUPS' as a professional baker its likely 1/2 TEASPOONS ...

    2. Yikes..that's quite the typo error:) It is 1 1/2 teaspoons and I have corrected that. Thank you for the reminder.

  3. Hope the fires are not close to you, how sad.
