Impossibly Easy Candy Bar Cookie Pie - Made by MiMi


    Is your house now full of soooooooo much candy?  Are you looking for something to do with it?  Or conversely, did the kids come home with a lot of candy and you are looking for a way to get your hands on it?  Either way, this could be the answer to all of your candy woes!  



     Think about it.  Tell the kids you are going to put their candy in cookie dough and bake it into a pie.  They are sure to give up at least a couple of pieces!  Or use up some of the stash you don't want around the house and bring a pie to the office.  Butter up the boss a bit and remove some excess stash from your house.  


     No matter what your inspiration is, this will be well received.  MiMi also made some candy bar ice cream to go with the pie!  Now that really brings it all home!  All she did was make a batch of her famous vanilla ice cream and stir in some chopped up candy bars at the end.  My sister Chloe is already asking for more next time she comes home!





Candy Bar Cookie Pie
makes 1 pie

Ingredients:

1 tube sugar cookie dough
A few handfuls of your favorite candy (or the leftover stuff that is just ok plain but would be GREAT in a cookie pie) chopped into bite sized pieces if necessary

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Arrange your pie crust in a pie plate.  Prick the bottom a few times with a fork.  place pie weights or parchment and dried beans into the pie crust.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Remove pie weights and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  3. Spread cookie dough over pie crust.  Sprinkle candy over top.
  4. Place back in oven for 45-50 minutes.  Cool slightly before serving.
