Do you have an ultimate dessert? I think the absolute best dessert is either a cookie or brownie served warm with a big scoop of ice cream on top. It brings together so many different flavors, textures and even temperatures, it just has it all. When eating out the pizza cookie, pizookie or cookie a la mode (depending on where you are at) is my top choice on the dessert menu.
The hot cookie, crunchy on the edges and still a bit gooey in the center, combined with the ice cream melting just creates dessert magic. I’m not sure if learning to make it at home was a very good thing or a very bad thing (they are oh so tempting to whip up anytime!), but if you have never made one at home, you must.
Really. Put it on your to do list, your bucket list or just go make one now.
I whipped up these cookie a la modes using DOVE Chocolate Promises, one of my favorite chocolates (how can you not love a chocolate that says sweet things to you?). I kind of totally loved this little note…
This recipe can make either four or six individual ramekins, depending on how much cookie dough you put in each ramekin. If you feel like sharing, dividing the dough into four ramekins is a great size for sharing with a friend. And if you want to keep your cookie all to yourself, six is a great way to go.
This recipe comes together just like regular cookie dough, and then is placed into your ramekins that have been sprayed lightly with a non-stick cooking spray. I did tuck two extra DOVE Chocolate Promises into the centers of these, just for some added deliciousness. Just put them into the cookie dough and then press them down and in.
Then bake them on a baking sheet for approximately 15-20 minutes (depending on how brown you like them). Take out and allow to cool (the ramekins remain hot, so careful, especially with kids) for about 10-15 minutes, top with ice cream and enjoy!
Delish! These always are extremely well received whenever I serve them.
Short on time? You can also try my microwave deep dish cookie recipe. The baked version always wins out on flavor due to both being baked and containing an egg, but the microwave version is no slouch!
