This cookie pie recipe is rich, sweet and full of chocolate, which is why I only make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s the perfect pie to mass produce during the holidays because you can bake two pies in the oven at the same time. (And believe me, you’ll want to keep one for yourself). I highly recommend giving this recipe a try, especially if you have a wicked sweet tooth like mine! – Long Island Pulse reader Denine Anderson-Regan.
Brennan’s Cookie Pie Recipe
Recipe by Long Island Pulse reader Denine Anderson-Regan
Makes 1 pie
1/2 cup sweet butter
2 extra large eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon flour
1 (9 inch) pie crust (not deep dish)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Melt butter, cool to room temperature.
When butter is cooled, stir in eggs, sugar and vanilla.
Sift in flour and mix well.
In a separate bowl, toss 1 cup of chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon flour. Fold chocolate chips into pie mixture; stir well.
Pour mixture into pie crust and bake 40 minutes at 350ºF. Remove pie from oven and refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or overnight.
Add 1 cup of chocolate chips to a Ziploc bag. Melt the chips in the microwave for 1 minute. Important: Only heat chocolate in 20 second intervals, or else the chocolate will burn. You must also squeeze the bag every 20 seconds to distribute the melting chips or else the bag will burn.
When chocolate has melted, you have two options. You can snip off a teeny tiny corner of the Ziploc bag and “pipe” decorative zigzags on top of the pie, or you can just cover the pie entirely in chocolate. If you opt for the latter idea, as seen in these pictures, swirl the chocolate into a “shrinking” circle for a pretty presentation. (Note: If you need more chocolate, just repeat this step. But be careful, the chocolate starts to set quickly.)
Serve cold, or heat for 15-20 seconds and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Pro Tip: When baking two pies at once, it is necessary to increase the cooking time by 5-10 minutes.
