Cookie Dough Pie

It’s a trick actually. There is no cookie dough in this pie at all. Just cookies made so they seem like cookie dough. Magical really. This pie could easily be named 1.2.3. Pie as there are only 3 ingredients, cookies are dipped at a super, quick count of three, and the whole thing takes about three minutes to make. Well maybe more but who’s counting, right?

My little niece, Mia ate this and said, “Hey did you put cookie dough in here?” She said the same thing I did when I first tasted this pie back in our Army days when a friend made this for me. She wouldn’t even give me the recipe she was so embarrassed by its simplicity. But she finally did and so will I.

Cookie Dough Pie
15.25 ounce package Chips Ahoy Cookies- Original kind
8-12 ounces Cool Whip- I used 8 ounces
2 cups milk*

Quickly dip cookies in milk, shake off excess liquid, and layer in 9 inch pie plate, breaking cookies to fill any gaps. Once the first layer is complete, top with a thin layer of Cool Whip. Repeat twice more making last layer of Cool Whip a bit thicker. Garnish with chocolate syrup if desired. Place in freezer 2-3 hours before serving. Serves 6-8.

*Last night I used 1 C. strong coffee mixed with 1 C. milk for dipping instead of plain milk. Very nice.

Note- You must dip quickly or your pie will be very soggy. Make sure to shake off excess milk as well so that you do not have a puddle of milk in your pie. You will have leftover milk but you do need that amount to get the cookie completely immersed. The final product will be like a soft cookie dough-like consistency. On the right is the pattern I made on top of the pie with chocolate syrup.

Can you imagine other cookie combinations? My brother and I speculated about Samoas, Oreos, Lorna Doones, or a bit of espresso powder mixed into the Cool Whip? Mmm, mmm, mmm. Of course the Italians call their version Tiramisu.

    Oh my gosh, that is a crazy pie! I love the whole idea, but does it taste like you’re eating cool whip?

    oneordinaryday- Not really. I made sure my cool whip layers were very thin between the cookies.

    This is so great! I showed it to my daughter before she went to school–“so cool,” she said. Definitely will make it. Check out the chocolate mug cake under kids on my blog–if you haven’t already tried this with your niece, it’s a must, too.

    I can’t believe there are only three ingredients in this! It looks so much more complicated!

    That is simply adorable! I have to make it. My question is…is it easy to cut…or does it fall apart easily. And you said you used coffee and milk…that was for the dipping? AND…did you swirl chocolate syrup on top?

    Noble Pig- It was fairly easy to cut, the first piece of any pie is not good! The pie had been frozen about 2 hours when I cut it, so it did stay together. I usually use milk but last night I dipped it in coffee with lots of milk in it for the dipping. I’ll put a picture of the top on here so you can see it. RS

    I would love to make this (right now actually), but I can’t buy coolwhip where I live. Do you suppose I could substitute homemade whipped cream?

    Thanks for a great recipe!
