Cookie Dough Pie

If you like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (and I'm sure you all do), you'll love this!
This is the easiest thing you'll ever make!
I know this isn't baking, but I just have to share this recipe because it's super easy! I stumbled onto this recipe from Leisl's Confection Dissection (a really great blog), and I knew I had to make it! The recipe is originally from Big Red Kitchen. If you have 5 minutes, you can easily throw this together & pop it in the fridge!

You will need*:

Cool Whip
Store bought Chocolate Chip Cookies
(I used Keebler because they're thicker than Chip's Ahoy.)
Several cups of Milk
(enough for dipping the cookies)
Optional: Chocolate Syrup or Chocolate Chips

*The amounts of the ingredients vary, so have extra on hand

Quickly dip cookies in milk, shake off the excess milk and layer them in a 9 inch pie plate, or another glass dish. Break up the 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, Chocolate Chips, or some Cookie Crumbs if desired. Place in the fridge several hours before serving.

Good Luck!

Cookie Dough Brownies

These are SO good & SO easy to make!
I first saw these on Bakerella's blog. I wanted to make them really bad, but I forgot about the recipe and just recently stumbled onto it again. I'm glad I did because I don't know what the world would be like without these! I love you Betty!

You will need:

1 box Betty Crocker Ultimate Fudge Supreme brownie mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
2 eggs

1 pouch Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg

Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease the bottom of a glass 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray, or grease with shortening. Make brownie mix as directed on the box, using oil, water and 2 eggs. Spread the brownie batter in your pan.

Make cookie mix as directed on pouch, using butter and 1 egg. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls evenly onto brownie batterPress the dough down lightly. (You can also just spread the cookie dough on top.)
(You May think ^these^ look burnt, but that's how they should look.)
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool on cooling rack 30 minutes.

Once the brownies are cool, pour on the Chocolate Ganache (or you can use regular chocolate frosting) & wait several hours for it to set up. ENJOY!

Chocolate Ganache
12 oz. of chocolate chips (1 bag)
6 Tablespoons butter
3/4 Cup Whipping Cream
Melt the butter in a pan with the Whipping Cream over Medium Heat. Once that starts boiling, stir in the Chocolate Chips until Smooth. Pour it on your brownies!!
