I’ve never really liked pies much as a dessert. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a slice of pie now and then but it’s not my go to when I want something to snack on. I’m more of a cookie kind of gal; I love all kinds of cookies, soft, chewy, crunchy, you name it!
This cookie is HUGE.. it’s so huge that I had to bake it in a pie pan so it’s now called a cookie pie. It’s 9” in diameter and is the equivalent to 12 whole cookies. Yeah, that’s one big cookie! Please don’t try to finish it yourself because I promise you this cookie is not mean to feed just one person! I like oatmeal cookies because they are soft, chewy and are loaded with texture and I also love chocolate chip cookies because well…. who doesn’t? I decided to combine two of my favorite cookie flavors into this cookie pie. The edges are super crunchy and golden and the center is nice and gooey.
I prepared the batter the same way I would with regular cookie dough. I then pressed it into a 9” pie pan, you can also use an 8” pan for a thicker cookie or a 9X9 square pan to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookie bars. Baking it in a pan is so much easier then having to scoop out 24 cookies, you just place the whole batter into the dish ad toss it in the oven.
The Perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats (I used Quaker large-flake oats)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 egg
- ½ cup butter, softened
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla extract.
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and stir until almost combined. Add chocolate chips and oat and stir until everything is fully combined.
- Pour batter into an un-greased pie pan.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edge is golden and top is lightly browned. Allow the cookie pie to cool for at least 1 minutes before slicing. At first it will be soft but will harden as it cools down. Cut into 8 slices.
