Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? This chocolate chip cookie pie is like a big Toll House cookie baked in a pie crust. It’s rich, decadent, and delicious!
A girl can only go so long without baking and without an ooey, gooey, sinfully decadent dessert!! Apparently, 13 days and 3 hours is my limit!!
Seriously, I haven’t baked in what feels like forever!! As well, the only dessert I had was dried up cake, unless you count stealing my kids Halloween stash… However, I haven’t baked!! For me not baking would be like not running, I not be happy!
I gave in to my baking urges and baked pie!😋
Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
If this dessert looks familiar to you, it’s much like a Toll House cookie pie. If you have never had it, you must make this immediately! I’ve been making this recipe since I was a teenager. Along with Sour Cream Pound Cake, they are two desserts that I made a lot as I was growing up.
This recipe is basically chocolate chip cookie dough baked in a pie crust. If you like soft cookies, you’ll love this recipe, because the pie is more gooey and soft. Also, they stay gooey and soft longer than cookies do.
As well, unlike cookies, you don’t have to chill the dough. You can bake the batter as soon as you get it mixed together.

I prefer it with pecans, but you can omit them. You can use other nuts like walnuts or almonds.
Also, I use a store-bought pie crust most of the time. Honestly, I don’t mind making pie crust. They’re really simple to make using a food processor. Try my Coconut Oil Pie Crust or my Never Fail Pie Crust. However, I can never get the edges to look pretty. What am I doing wrong?
For the chocolate chips, classically semi-sweet chocolate chips are used in chocolate chip cookies. Honestly, you can use your favorite chocolate. I like semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips in this recipe.
Cookie Pie Recipe FAQ
Here are answers to a couple of questions that I hear often…
Can I freeze cookie pie?
Yes! Just like chocolate chip cookie dough, this is a freezer-friendly dessert. Furthermore, you can bake and then freeze it. Another option, you can freeze, thaw, and then bake it.
Can I make a deep dish pie with a regular crust?
If you have a regular pie crust instead of a deep dish, reduce the chocolate chips and pecans. Therefore, you need 2/3 cup chocolate chips and 2/3 cup chopped pecans.
Additionally, reduce the cooking time to 27 to 30 minutes.
You can make my Never Fail Pastry Crust, or purchase a pie crust.
Prick the bottom with a fork so you don’t have a huge bubble in the middle. Next, bake it for 10 minutes at 350°.
Next, place the chocolate chips and pecans in the bottom of the pie dough.
Pour the filling over the pecans and chocolate chips and bake until golden brown!
