Introduction: Cookie Brownie Pie

Picture of Cookie Brownie Pie

I'm not a big pie person (especially the crusts), so I made up my own "pie" that is delicious and I am not the only one who thinks so.  So if you love brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and caramel, there is no reason for you to not love this pie.  It also doesn't really require many ingredients and you can make two pies depending on the size of your pie pan.

Step 1: Ingredients

You don't need anything too fancy for this.

Cookie dough: homemade or from the store (I had a 30oz. package and did not use it all for two pies)
Brownie mix: (1 box of 19.4oz. was enough for two pies)
Caramel: I ended up using Dulce de Leche which was great, but expensive (1lb. and didn't use it all for one pie)
Pie Pans: 2 or you can use the same one twice (Mine is 7 inches in diameter on the bottom)

(Some of my ingredients were for two pies because I experimented first and failed which you will see in the last step.)

Step 2: Bake

Mix up your cookie dough and brownie mix (don't mix them together though).

Pour your brownie mix into a pie pan, you want to use about half the mix.  Bake according to the package.

Take your cookie dough and push it down into the pie pan.  You don't want it thick at all.  It will puff up.  I pushed it down with the size of the chocolate chips being the thickest it got.  Bake it.

Step 3: Stack With Caramel

Let both your brownies and cookie cool.  If they are too warm the brownie might fall apart when you take it out of the pan.

I put my brownie on top of the cookie to get an idea of how well it was going to fit.  To get it to fit in snugly, I cut around the brownie taking off about 1/4-1/2 an inch and cut at an angle.

Once it is the size you want it, set it aside and get your caramel.  I said earlier that I used the Dulce De Leche pictured, but you can probably use other caramels.  They will just sit in the pie differently.  This caramel spread on like creamy butter; it was so smooth.

Once I had the caramel spread and the brownie on top, I pushed down the brownie.  It is nice and soft so it should cooperate with you. I pushed the edges, too, so they would match up better with the cookie crust.

Step 4: Put Together

Now spread a nice layer of caramel on top of the pie.  If you have a runnier caramel, I am unsure of how it will react, but if you have the cookie sides up a little higher than the brownie, it should be fine.

You're done!  What a lovely simple pie!

Step 5: First Version

So when I first made this I put the raw cookie dough in the pan and the brownie mix on top.  It didn't work, but I believe it could if you baked it at 300 degrees for half an hour, but don't quote me on that.

I did eat the outcome, but I think the brownie was undercooked.  It wasn't bad, but the other version was much better.

The plan for this version was to melt caramel candies, pour it out to harden flat, and cut into strips to criss cross on the top, but that didn't turn out either so the fancy caramel wasn't wasted on this pie.

OMG looks so delicious! It made my mouth water!
And it's such a creative idea with the chocolate chip cookie dough, and the combination is great ;)

Love this! I have a similar recipe that I made with a shortbread crust, mocha fudge brownie and cream cheese icing on top. Great minds think alike!

I just love how many ways you can alter this and make it into another amazing pie!!!

iluvtyedye84 (author)2011-12-05

I love the cookie crust idea!

Thank you! I don't like pie crusts, they are always so dry and bla to me. I think this really adds to a pie!

iwasthinkingaboutsoup (author)2011-12-05

Dear brownies in heaven, that looks delicious! I'll have to try it!

I strongly suggest it!

emkayach (author)2011-12-01

I have a jar of spreadable coconut cream. I will work your recipe but add the coconut cream between the layers.

It is always great to add on! I am a big fan of taking recipes and projects and making them my own!

rhdy (author)2011-12-01

This looks like a good one to try. I got a lot of good compliments on a similar (very easy) pie for Thanksgiving (I made 1 for work and 1 for family). Brownie bottom, chocolate pudding in the middle, whipped cream with chocolate sprinkles on top.

whisperonthewind (author)rhdy2011-12-01

Okay, rhdy, so now I have to make up TWO food kits for each kid...

Mmm, that sounds very tasty! Lots of chocolate goodness.

whisperonthewind (author)2011-12-01

Oh YUM! I've got to try this. And then I have to figure out how to make up a kit to send to my kids for Christmas. (How do I prevent drool from getting on the recipe?)

It would be fun to have kits, all you would need, really, is boxed ingredients for the brownies and cookies and then a jar of caramel :) That sounds like a great gift!

mr.frob (author)2011-12-01

Wow that looks so good, I'm definitely going to have to try that soon. And I actually like my brownies a little undercooked, that failed pie looked delicious.

Penolopy Bulnick (author)mr.frob2011-12-01

Oh, I still ate it! I couldn't pass up brownies no matter what. And it wasn't really bad, just more moist than usual. :)

lmnopeas (author)2011-11-26

Oh great.Gonna have to postpone my diet. Again...

I think it is worth the postponement :)

Definitely! I could eat this whole pie by myself!

I love that you choose Dulce de Leche for the top. I'm not sure if you are familiar with this technique, but you can make Dulce de Leche from a can of sweet condensed milk. It takes a couple of hours, but will save you money. A can of condensed milk won't cost you more than $1.50 and would probably be the perfect amount for the pie, with a little left over.

I actually didn't know that and it is a nice thing to know. That stuff wasn't cheep and your version sounds just as good :)

Sunshiine

Thank you! I agree. So much more awesome than pie!

susanrm (author)2011-11-26

Looks good. Did you see my Cookie, Cake and Ice Cream Pie? :-)

Penolopy Bulnick (author)susanrm2011-11-26

Thank you, and I went over to see it after you mentioned it. Looks good :) Isn't it wonderful we can combine such wonderful foods together. And you were able to cook it all together! Awesome!

Freakyfoam (author)2011-11-26

I don't look at many of the foodibles, but when I saw this, it was like some strange power took over my hand, moved the cursor over, and clicked on the picture. Looks good and, best of all, it's seems to be within my culinary capabilities.

Thank you for looking! Yes, I can't cook at all, but I feel anyone can do this and that is one of the reasons I love it!

ilpug (author)2011-11-25

So you basically took the three best things ever and combined them. This is a triumph. I must make this, as soon as I can shop for ingredients.

Penolopy Bulnick (author)ilpug2011-11-25

Yes! Thank you! It is really good. And I think the caramel is what really makes it work!

ilpug (author)Penolopy Bulnick2011-11-25

Yeah, caramel definitely makes everything better.

Penolopy Bulnick (author)ilpug2011-11-25

Not going to argue with that :)
