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.
- 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.

Our 9yo and I made this, and the whole family raved about it! We chose to add a handful of chopped pecans which our family of five found really yummy. The dough was much stiffer than I expected, but it was true to traditional CCC dough.
I just made this for my husbands birthday! It’s his favorite kind of cookie. I ended up leaving it in the oven for 30 mins at 350. It looks and smells great!
I’m making this for a friend for her birthday!! Is it just as good cooled off, or do you suggest heating it back up before serving?!
It’s great either way but I suggest warming it for a gooey texture!

Even after 25 mins, This was gooey in the middle and brown on the top. Im afraid to put it back in the oven but i am anyway. Do you know what i did wrong? Its not just soft in the middle, its super wet, like i can cut through it and its mushy. It looks like the one in the pic, but not when i cut through it. I waited 10mins to cUt It. My kids are going nutty waiting!
Same here, it just kinda flopped and didn’t come together. Super gooey in the middle 🙁
Do you think I could double this recipe and bake it in a standard size cookie sheet? My son specifically requested oatmeal chocolate chip cookie cake and we will need more than 8 servings for our guests.
yes It would be fine doubled and baked in a 9×13 pan but I would keep an eye on the baking time.
I made this last night, only I baked it in a mini-pie pan (it yielded 6 mini pies). Very delicious! My husband loved it too!
Just made this tonight and my husband and I enjoyed it! We had hardly any butter, so I used the ~3 tablespoons I had, and then used a single serving of unsweetened apple sauce (the ones in the small plastic cups). I cut down slightly on the sugar because of the applesauce. I added a sprinkling of cinnamon. Turned out fluffy, moist, and delicious! Thanks! Now I’m going to go back for seconds…

Natalie @ Tastes Lovely says
I love the idea of a cookie pie! I’d serve mine up with a big ole scoop of ice cream.
That sounds like a great idea Natalie. I will be sure to try it next time! 😀
What a huge cookie! You probably needed a huge glass of milk with it too 🙂
