The Pizookie!

At a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation conference in Washington, D.C. a couple of years ago, I met the owner of BJ's restaurants. His teenaged daughter has cystic fibrosis and he has used his restaurant to raise money for the CF Foundation in a really fun way - especially if you have a sweet tooth! At all the BJ's restaurants nationwide, there is a program called Cookies for Kids. Any time their dessert, the Pizookie, is ordered, one dollar is donated to the CF Foundation. Because of this program, BJ's has donated MILLIONS of dollars for CF research! If you have not had a Pizookie you MUST. It is a huge cookie in a skillet, served warm and topped with ice cream. There are several different ones to choose from. My daughter, Hayden, received my sweet tooth through her DNA and she loves these every bit as much as I do! Here we are this past Tuesday enjoying our cookies 'n' cream Pizookie.
There was NOTHING left when we were done with it! If you live in the OKC Metro area, visit the BJ's on Memorial in front of Quail Springs Mall (next to TGIFridays) and order a Pizookie! If you don't, visit their website to find a location near you!
