Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

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.

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.

  1. If you wanted to know, I don’t like pi very much. But this was delicious. :D

    I’m not a big pie fan either, what a good idea you had. My student took brownie pie to school for the Pi day math class celebration.

  3. I think pie is wonderful and very close to my favorite food (my absolute favorite is butter…it works on almost anything). And pie crust made with lard?? Talk about heaven. Thank goodness there are people who don’t like it. Leaves more for me.

    • I do like pies made with things like oreo or graham cracker crusts. I just don’t like regular pie crust very much!

  4. My son’s school has a big Pi day celebration today. Of course, lots of people bring pies. The only problem is that my son won’t eat fruit pies so it’s kind of a wasted day for him. I wish I would have known about your chocolate chip cookie pie ahead of time. This is a pie that my 12 year old would love!

  5. My mouth is watering already! And I have all the ingredients at home so I will be making this when I get home! Thank you!!!

  6. This looks mouthwateringly delicious. And I didn’t know about Pi day. Learn something new every day. We’ll have to celebrate this next year.

  8. Making this this evening! Thank you, Lisey and Kristen!

  9. I just put mine in the oven. I substituted for peanut butter chips.

  10. Mmmm cookie pie is nummy! Funny, my son told me this evening that it was pi day. lol But I made No Bake cookies instead being the rebel I am. ;)

  11. Ohhhh..with a scoop of ice cream while it is still warm would be delightful!

  12. Raffaella says:

    Drool! I have to try this. :)

    Are toffee candies ok?

  13. Linda H. says:

    I made this yesterday and it is sooooo good! We had it warm with vanilla ice cream. I think it could make a fun birthday dessert with some icing flowers and writing. Thanks for the recipe!!

    Awesome!

    I don’t really like making or eating most pie crusts, either. We solved that problem by making a crustless pumpkin pie – it’s basically a regular pumpkin pie with 1/4 c. of flour added to the filling, then poured into a greased pie pan. A lot of pies can be made crustless, so if you like pie filling but not the crust, try experimenting!

  15. My pie is in the oven, I didn’t have any chocolate chips so I put slivered almonds and and replaced 1/4 of cocoa powder for flour.
