Pie #44 – Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Before I start on my pie tangent, I feel the need to plug a singer who is working his way onto the cultural radar. His name is Marc Martel and he’s auditioning for the Queen Extravaganza which is being organized by Roger Taylor, the drummer for Queen. It’s a touring show that will hit the road next year. The tour is looking for singers and musicians to play the very best of Queen. Marc sent in a video audition where he sings Somebody to Love. It’s on You Tube, the clip is here. It is absolutely unbelievable. This guy should actually replace Paul Rogers who is currently fronting the band. End unsolicited plug for Marc…

Pie number 44 is a cookie pie. André has expressed an interest in my making a big pie that’s like a cookie and today I was feeling the mood for it. It’s very simple; prep took about 20 minutes and the total time from start to finish is just over an hour. Perfect if you are trying to watch football:)

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup butter, melted

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F. Beat eggs well in large bowl. Add flour and sugars and mix until well blended. Stir in the melted butter. Add chips . Pour into unbaked pie shell, and bake at 325F for 55-65 minutes until puffy and golden brown. Let cool at least two hours before cutting. It’s currently on a rack in my kitchen cooling. I’m ready to eat and have whip cream and ice cream to add. Go big. I love me some cookie pie!
