Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
Chocolate chip cookie lovers will rejoice in this chocolate chip cookie pie recipe. It consists of layering cookies and whipped cream into a prepared graham cracker crust for an easy pie recipe you can create any day of the week. Jessica, the author of ‘Butter with a Side of Bread’ recipe blog, insists that this cookie pie recipe wouldn’t be as good as it is without the chocolate fudge sauce, and indeed, she is right because it adds extra decadence to take this dessert over the top. Easy desserts recipes are a must when you require something delicious to satisfy cravings, but don’t want to spend a lot of times, and this cookie recipe takes just ten minutes to assemble.
It might seem strange to layer hard chocolate chip cookies into a pie, but similar to tiramisu recipes which use lady fingers, the cookies are dipped in some kind of liquid to soften them. In tiramisu recipes, lady fingers might be dipped in coffee or some coffee-flavoured liquor like Kahlua, but in the case of this pie recipe, the cookies are dipped in milk. This apt pairing results in the cookies becoming cake-like and soft enough to slice into pretty wedges of pie, rather than crumbling apart. This process doesn’t happen immediately, however, as it requires several hours of set time in the refrigerator for the pie to settle together, and the Cool Whip helps just as much as the milk. If chocolate milk is your thing, you could soak the cookies in that instead. In the case that you are looking to limit or eliminate your dairy intake, there are ways to replace the cream and milk. Rather than using traditional cow’s milk, you could substitute with almond, soy, or cashew nut milk. Whipped coconut cream could replace the milk. Simply remove the solid part at the top of the can of coconut milk and whip with icing sugar and vanilla extract if desired. Unlike cream that is whipped from 35% cream, coconut whipped cream will firm up in the refrigerator and can be kept for up to three days.
Easy desserts, like this pie recipe, rely on quality ingredients to make them as delicious as can be. If you find a homemade chocolate chip cookie particularly enticing, then feel free to make up your chocolate chip cookie recipe rather than using store-bought Chip’s Ahoy cookies. Not only will you be eating a cookie that is better for you, because it won’t contain the preservatives that prepared desserts often have in them. It is also an excellent way of using up cookies that have been sitting around for a few days. Dried out cookies will be more likely to soak up the milk and cream than fresh-baked ones would.Cool recipes for dessert are the way to go when you want to please your kids. Rather than traditional birthday cake, consider serving this cookie pie recipe with generous scoops of ice cream, hot fudge, and bright colored sprinkles.
