Yesterday, my mom told me that Pi Day (3.14) was coming up, and she thought we should make a pie (pi?) for my blog. We decided to make something nice and easy, because it was last minute.
Pie crust isn’t my favorite thing in the world and my mom doesn’t really love it either, so we made a pie that doesn’t have a crust. This is like a really big chocolate chip cookie, so if you like chocolate chip cookies and you don’t like pie, this is perfect for you.
To make this, first preheat your oven to 350° F. Then mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
Next, in a mixer bowl, combine the butter and brown sugar.
Then add in the egg and the vanilla extract.
Stir in the flour mixture, and then stir in the chocolate chips.
The original recipe called for 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup toffee bits, but we had no toffee bits. So, we used a cup of chocolate chips.
Spray a pie plate with nonstick cooking spray and then spread the dough evenly in the pan with a spatula or knife.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. We baked ours for closer to 30 minutes, but I’d do 25 minutes next time because our outer edge was a little bit crunchy!
Let the pie cool for a little while and then cut it into slices to serve.
Happy Pi Day!
