12 Days of Cookies - Day 12 - Cookie Pie and A Giveaway


On the twelfth day of cookies my true love gave to me - a cookie in a pie. I finally made it!  Geez..could that taken me long enough.   There never seems to be enough time in the day for me to get things done.   Either that or I am in super slow vacation mode and my productivity bar is on low.    When on vacation my priorities sort of get jumbled around and there are all these little things I don't really get to do, like shopping in the middle of the day,  lunch with a girl friend or just curling up the couch doing nothing and watching day time tv or reading a book, you can't always do these small things when you are working 9-5.  In short this vacation has been so nice and relaxing.   Time to start thinking about a new year and new things.

Enjoy Day 12 - Finally!     (P.S - GIVEAWAY DOWN BELOW!)

Cookie Pie

(Adapted from BAKED - New Frontiers)

INGREDIENTS:


  • 1 Pie Dough in shell - homemade or store bought - uncooked, frozen
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup (6 oz) unsalted butter, softened, cubed
  • 1 tbsp whiskey
  • 2/3 cup toasted, chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 cup toffee bits








INSTRUCTIONS:

1)  Preheat oven to 350F.  Remove pie shell from freezer while preparing filling.
2) Combine flour and sugars in a medium bowl and whisk together.


 3) In your mixer bowl/large bowl whisk together the eggs until foamy, a few minutes.  Switch to the paddle attachment or beaters.  Gradually add the flour/sugar mixture to the eggs with the mixer on low. 
Once all flour/sugar has been added, beat on high for 2 minutes.


4) Add the butter, scrape down the bowl and beat to combine butter.  Add whiskey and mix to combine
5) Fold in toasted walnuts. both chips and toffee bits, reserve about 1/3 cup chips (combination of both chips)


6) Place pie shell  on a baking sheet and pour filling into shell.   Top with remaining chips.


7) Bake in center rack for 45-50 minutes.   Check after 30 minutes and cover the crust edges with aluminum foil to prevent the crust from browning to quickly.   ( My crust didn't brown to quickly but the originally recipe makes a not to check this. ) Pie is down when a knife comes out clean.   Let cool completely before slicing.  Store pie in the refrigerator, tightly covered for up to 2 days. 

Why not end on a high note I say.  A cookie turned into the main dessert by secretly putting it into a pie shell.  Is it a pie, is it a cookie?  It's both!  Served warm, it is heaven.

MEG's RATING: D-EEEEE-LICIOUS!
