Chocolate Chip Cookie pizza

I  understand that this one might be a stretch when it comes to my chocolate chip cookie quest, but it was kind of fun to make and a dessert that everyone loved.  How could they not?  Peanut butter, chocolate chip cookie crust, hot fudge.  Oh yeah, and cream cheese!

It really hit the spot--the sweet spot.  (groan.... hey, don't judge.  It's hard to be witty all the time). 

We enjoyed some  pizza of the regular kind tonight and then finished it up by having this dessert pizza and watching the Giants play ball.  On TV.  As we sat in our recliners.
The Handyman and I are just crazy like that on Friday nights.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza
from Pillsbury

1 roll of Pillsbury refrigerated chocolate chip cookies.  (16.5 oz)
1 8oz pkg of cream cheese--softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
3/4 cup hot fudge topping
1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Heat oven to 350 F.  In an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan, break up cookie dough. With floured fingers, press dough evenly in the bottom of the pan to form crust.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool completely, about 30 minutes.  
Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
Spread 1/2 cup of the fudge topping over the cooled crust.  Spread peanut butter mixture over that.  Drizzle with the  remaining  1/ cup fudge topping. Sprinkle with peanuts.
Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until serving time.
Cut into wedges to serve.
