I'm back! Anyone miss me?
Oh, I'm getting stressed just thinking about it.
Cookie pie, anyone?
Part of my birthday package from my mother last month included a large stack of mail and a container of M&M's shaped like the great state of Texas.
I wanted to make cookies, but I didn't want to make cookies. I didn't feel like I had the patience to ball up all the dough and then clean several cookie sheets so I decided to dump the entire bowl of batter into my pie pan and voilà! Cookie pie.
I'm not calling it cookie cake because I baked it in my pie pan. So there.
M&M Cookie Pie
1cup + 1 tbs AP Flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Texas-shaped container of M&M's- OR- 1-ish cup.
Preheat oven to 325*
Cream butter and sugar. Add in egg and extract and blend. The combine flour and baking soda- mix until completely incorporated. Fold in the M&M's. Dump into a greased 9.5" pie pan and bake for 25-30 mins. You know the drill, when a toothpick/ridiculously small pairing knife comes out clean it's donezo.
Cool, cut into cookie pie slices and enjoy!
"No white sugar?"- NOPE. the brown sugar and M&M's are the sweet in this recipe.
"Can I bake it in an aluminum pie pan?"- you sure can!
"what's the texture like?"- it's a cake-like cookie. NOT a greasy thin cookie cake like you get at a supermarket.
"It came out flour-y tasting"- well, you did not measure your flour correctly...
