Where has September gone? With the start of school (which means going back to work for me) the month has flown by. I kind of panicked last weekend when I looked at the calendar and thought “oh no, it’s almost reveal day! Get on it!” But fear not. I baked (and ate) and I’m here to bring you a delicious recipe =o)
This month for the Secret Recipe Club I was assigned the blog: The Boys Made Me Do It. Yeah, I thought as soon as I saw the email. This is a blog that I know and love. Cara is a Mom of 3 boys. (Yep, three!) She loves to cook and even though her husband is a chef (totally cool), she does most of the cooking. How does that work? =o)
I don’t want to say her recipes are simple, because that doesn’t sound like a compliment. They are “real” recipes and I just love that about her site. They are recipes that I look at and think “I totally want to make that!” So many times I look at a blog and think the recipes looks good but the million ingredients or fancy, far away spices or something make it totally unrealistic for this single mom of two.
I really wanted to make her Cinnamon Bun Muffins because come on, who doesn’t want Cinnamon Bun Muffins?!?! Then I spotted her 7 Up Biscuits. YUM! But what did I decide on? Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie (of course.) I mean seriously! A chocolate chip cookie INSIDE a pie crust? I’m in!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
Source: The Boys Made Me Do It
* 1 unbaked 9′ pie crust (homemade or store bought)
* 2 large eggs
* 1/2 cup all purpose flour
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
* 3/4 cup butter, softened
* 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
* 1 cup chopped pecans (I left these out)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
I use Marie Callender’s pie crusts. They are delicious and so much easier than making your own. Not that I wouldn’t want to make my own. I just don’t. So there.
Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans and spoon into the unbaked pie shell.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean.
Cool on wire rack or serve slightly warm.
Delicious! I’ve never made a cookie pie so I wasn’t totally sure what the consistency was supposed to be. The knife came out clean so I assume it’s done. But, of course, I had to cut into it when it was warm and it was more “gooey” than I thought but it was AWESOME! We loved it and will for sure be making this again!
Let’s take a look at what everyone else cooked up for today!
