Pi Day! Well, this was obviously a couple of months ago (3/14), but I still wanted to share this gem with you that I made in honor of Pi Day! Rather than making an actual pie (although I have made many in the past before), I decided to venture into the world of Cookie Pie.
Cookie Pies are pretty much just an oversized cookie put into a pie plate, but for some reason, they taste uniquely and distinguishably different than your average cookie.
Rather than doing a standard chocolate chip cookie pie, I ventured into one of my favorite combos of butterscotch and white chocolate chip. I don’t know why this combo works as well as it does…but I am very glad that it does.
2 cups flour
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2) Grease pie plate and set aside
3) In a stand mixer, beat together sugars and egg until light and fluffy.
4) Add eggs and vanilla to stand mixer and continue to beat.
5) Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, sift together dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt).
6) Once well sifted together, add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and continue to mix on low.
7) Once well mixed, turn off mixer and gently fold in butterscotch and white chocolate chips.
8) Spread mixture into pie dish.
9) Bake for 25-30 minutes until you are able to put a toothpick in and pull out cleanly.
10) Remove and set aside to cool.
11) Share and Enjoy!
Everyone enjoyed this cookie pie and I think it’s a nice way to change up the usual pace from your standard cookies. The cookie pie almost is halfway between a cookie and a brownie because the consistency ends up being slightly gooey more than anything else. You should make this! Yeah, you know you want to!
