Hot and Steamy

The cookies 'n cream "pizzookie" ($4.95) at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse (2231 Highway 6 South, 281-242-0400) is eight inches of heaven. A cross between a pizza and a cookie, it's a deep-dish molten chocolate dessert that tastes a whole lot like Oreos served hot out of the oven. Three scoops of vanilla bean ice cream sit on stop, melting away, and a healthy serving of whipped cream covers everything the ice cream doesn't. The trick is to let the ice cream melt just enough so that the cookie is still warm when it enters your mouth.
