Holiday Baking– White Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie {Recipe}

White Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

When Darren and I were married almost nine years ago, we received a beautiful set of glass bakeware.  There was a pie dish, several sizes of rectangular baking dishes, a square baking dish, and a loaf pan– all ideal for holiday baking.  Those dishes have been used time and time again throughout the years, garnering scratches and scuffs that are reminders of meals and desserts we’ve shared.

That is– all except the pie dish.  Sure, I’ve used it a handful  of times, but never once for it’s intended purposes.  I just never thought of myself as a pie person.  The holiday staples– Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie, and even Apple Pie– just never appealed to me.

And, since I’m being honest– I actually almost got rid of my pie dish before we moved a few months ago.  Almost.  Something kept nagging at me, though, telling me to hang on to that pie dish a little longer.

I am so glad that I did.

I recently discovered that I really, really love pie.  I love to eat it and I love to bake it.

I’m not talking about the traditional pies I mentioned earlier, though.  I’m talking about Cookie Pie.

I’ve been experimenting with turning my favorite cookie recipes into deep dish, gooey in the center pies and let me just say– it’s quite heavenly.  I’ve learned a few tricks that make these pies truly melt in your mouth.  Using quality ingredients, such as real butter, is a must.  No self-respecting pie would ever use the fake stuff.

This pie features Darren’s favorite– white chocolate chips.  Usually, he takes the sweets I make to work and shares them with his employees.  This pie… it didn’t make it out the door.  It was that good.

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted Land O’ Lakes butter {melted}
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 9-inch deep dish pie shell {I use the ones found in the refrigerated section, near the break and bake cookies}

My Favorite Pie- White Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Move your oven rack into the lower setting and pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside.

Place the melted butter in a large bowl.  Gradually whisk in the sugar and brown sugar.  Beat in both eggs, then add the vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients you blended earlier.  Fold in the white chocolate chips.

Take the pie shell and press it carefully into your pie dish.  Pour the pie mixture into the dish, using the back of a spoon to evenly distribute it.

White Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie and Land O' Lakes Butter

Bake for 33 to 35 minutes until the top of the pie is a light golden brown color.  if you cut into the pie right away, it will be gooey and slightly runny.  Allow the pie to sit for 3 to 4 hours and the filling will set.

You can microwave for 15 seconds and the filling will be warm, but won’t run.  It’s really good when topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped topping… or both!

If you’d like more awesome holiday baking ideas, I invite you to connect with Land O’ Lakes, makers of my favorite butter for baking and cooking.

    That’s such a cute testimony about how good it is, and oh boy, this looks soooo good to me, too. I adore good butter in a pie and white chocolate chips. I want to make this as I have nice glass pie plates collecting dust!!! I won’t even try to think about bringing it somewhere, as I doubt it would get out of the door….
