I first had Tollhouse cookie pie at a local restaurant. After the first bite, I knew I wanted to recreate the dessert at home. Warm chocolate chip cookie and ice cream is a heavenly combination. As this chocolate chip cookie pie bakes, your house will be filled with sweet aromas. How can you go wrong with a pie that looks like a giant cookie? It is best served warm and gooey right from the oven. I like to serve the pie in a bowl with vanilla ice cream. The warm chocolate oozes as the melted ice cream forms a puddle of cream. Of course you can use your favorite flavor of ice cream or whipped cream. Any leftovers will be just as delicious heated in the microwave the next day. There is another version of this cookie pie that is made with a crust. I prefer the pie all cookie, without the crust, but you could easily add a crust.
I am always looking for simple things to bake that do not require a lot of time. This pie delivers in both simplicity and time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare. The hard part is waiting for it to finish baking.
