Triple Threat: The Cookie Cake Pie

Cookie Cake Pie
Cookies, Cakes and Pies are basically the holy trinity of baked goods.

Separately, each is wonderful in its own way. Cookies and milk after school. Birthday cake. Pie at Thanksgiving.

But what if--just what if--all of this awesome could be combined into one singular sensation?

It's time to break out a seriously sweet triple play: the Cookie Cake Pie.
Cookie Cake Pie
I wish I had a more clever moniker for you, but really, the name does say it all: it's a cookie and a cake within a pie. This treat embraces the idea that if some is good, more is wonderful; it weighs more than any I've ever held in my arms, and it packs much more of a sugary punch. Excessive? Perhaps. But everyone who tried it all but licked the plate clean.

Want one of your very own? Here's what you need to do.

Cookie Cake Pie

You'll need:


Cookie Dough
First, prepare one batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. You can leave this in the fridge or to the side while you prepare the rest.

Next, prepare a single pie crust and line it into a pie plate. I considered blind-baking it, but ultimately did not, and I thought it turned out fine.
Cookie dough in pie crust
Place the cookie dough inside of the pie crust and using your fingers or a spoon, spread it so that it evenly coats the bottom of the crust. Mine was about an inch thick; I had enough cookie dough leftover to make about three big cookies, or one massive cookie dough snack.

At this point, you might want to pre-heat the oven. I considered each of the three recipes (pie, cookie and cake) and chose an average of 350 degrees.

Let the cookie-filled pie crust rest for a bit while you mix up some birthday cake. If I'm to be completely honest here, I used Rainbow Chip cake. Yes, from a mix. It just felt right, and it added such a nice color contrast. Don't judge me.
Pouring Cake Batter on Cookie dough in Pie Crust
Pour cake batter directly on top of the cookie dough til the pie crust is about 2/3 filled. The cake will rise, so you want to leave room for it. You will probably have leftover cake batter; why not make some cupcakes?
Let it Bake
Put this monster in the oven and check after about 25 minutes. I kept on checking every 5 minutes and think it ended up baking for about 30-40 minutes total. I took it out when the cake was golden around the edges. As an update, I have tried it again with other mixes and sometimes it takes up to 55 minutes.
Frost, GenerouslyFrost it!
Let cool, and frost generously with buttercream frosting (mine was approximately an inch thick--this is not the time for moderation). Garnish as desired; I thought sprinkles were festive and pretty.

Yum
Finally--and most importantly--enjoy.

Oh my gosh, so many variation opportunities! Graham cracker crust? peanut butter cookies and chocolate cake? triple chocolate all around? butterscotch? My brain can't handle it.

Oh no! I've been outdone!

A few years ago I made a cake with a pie in the middle for my husband's birthday (his idea), and it would have worked if the pie filling had set up a little better. But this . . . this . . . this . . . cake? and pie? and a cookie?

I am so making one of these this weekend. Yummy!

WOW WOW WOW All desserts combined in one! It s awesome. Have to try it :)

Oh Wow! To be honest, I never would have thought about putting all three together. But as I think about it more, the possibilities are endless!! Lemon or carrot cake, cream cheese frosting, ginger snap crust, light chocolate cookie layer....Oh Yum my mouth is watering!

I don't even like pie, but I'm willing to eat THAT!

Whoa. That is a triple threat dessert!

May 27 | Unregistered CommenterTina

Would it be possible, in some way, to include a brownie mix in this? Or would the universe collapse?

May 27 | Unregistered CommenterJessa Slade

This should be illegal :)

May 27 | Unregistered CommenterButterYum

This is like three cravings in one! Always pushing the envelope!

*falls over from excitement*

I definitely agree with ButterYum-- this SHOULD be illegal!

I told my mom I want this for my birthday even though it's still a good 5 months away.
