Deep Dish Cookie Pies

Makes 6 servings

The Blue-Eyed Bakers' Chocolate Chip Cookie dough (recipe follows)
6 small ramekins
Vanilla ice cream

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Fill ramekins 3/4″ deep with raw, room temperature cookie dough.  Set ramekins on baking sheet and  bake on the middle rack of the oven for 11-13 minutes, or until the top is just slightly golden brown.  You're aiming for slightly undercooked cookies.

Place ramekins on individual plates or napkins (they'll be hot) and top with vanilla ice cream, as much or as little as you like.  Spoon delicious bitefuls immediately into your mouth.

These are best served straight from the oven.
