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.

Need.

No. You. Didn't. I know what I'm making to celebrate last day of school.. Thanks for sharing!!

That looks really good. I think I would go into a sugar coma after a slice or two, or three=)

I feel my teeth decaying as we speak....I am going to have to try this sometime soon....

May 30 | Unregistered CommenterJonathan

oooh... I like the sugar cookie crust idea!
...and spread brownie mix on it, then pour the cake over, bake it, then topped it with pudding or some banana slices w banana cream and top with a whipped cream to make it a REAL pie!!!
...ok... i'll stop... a bit overboard...

May 31 | Unregistered Commentermeg

That's quite the cake, it looks delicious!

I've been thinking about the dynamics of cake pie for some time now. Tell me, was the cake & crsust combo just too dry/too much carb? Any thoughs on texture?

May 31 | Unregistered CommenterZommy

Oh my god. Ultimate decadence. I would never had the guts to make something so sugary, but I would definitely like to have a slice!

funfetti is freakin awesome

I was so inspired by this that I got all the ingredients to do a couple of my own.
I'm going to do a traditional pie crust, oatmeal cookie and spice cake or maybe Gingerbread with butter cream icing.
I'm also going to do a Sugar Cookie and Lemon Cake with Lemon Icing.
Now I'm reading the comments and the peanut butter/chocolate combo sounds so amazing I might have to zoom back to the store...
Hooray for insane desserts!!!

May 31 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

I'd try this if the cake, cookie and crust components were made from scratch. But if we are talking mixes and ready-made stuff from the supermarket, then yuck-o! The mere thought makes me queasy.

May 31 | Unregistered CommenterXenophora

Never in my life would I have thought of combining the three greatest desserts of all time! Brilliant!
