When is two better than one? When you combine two classic desserts into one bite with this Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Pie! A fudgy brownie layer topped with a chewy chocolate chip cookie layer for one simple pie recipe.
Last week it was much colder than usual, so I was only able to go walking during one semi-warm evening. There are two places I walk – either at the nearby park or on the river walk trail alongside one of Pittsburgh’s three rivers. As I was walking along the river, I passed a pedestrian bridge I often pass without knowing where it went. I decided that was the night I was going to explore it (and hope I don’t stray too far from the main trail). Turns out it led to a residential area with a pretty Japanese-inspired garden with a river view of the city skyline. Not everything was in bloom yet, so I bet it’ll even be more beautiful once summer arrives. The neighborhood seemed peaceful too, although they had a random dinosaur statue at the end of the one cul-de-sac. It was so random yet so cool. Hey like our nice posh neighborhood? Cool, check out our awesome dinosaur statue. I want a dinosaur statue in my neighborhood.
Speaking of things that don’t seemingly go together (and my lame attempt at transitioning to my recipe), I enjoy mashing up my desserts but mashing up recipe names, not so much. Pizookie? Cronut? Doughsant? I suppose I should refer to this Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Pie as a brookie pie, but then I also have to take an extra 5 minutes to explain the name every time someone asks about this recipe. “What did you make? A brookie pie? What’s that?” If you’re asking yourself that question right now, it’s when you combine a cookie, usually chocolate chip, and a brownie together in one recipe. My Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bites are always a huge hit no matter the occasion, so I thought I’d go bigger and turn it into a pie. The brownie layer is made on the stovetop while the cookie layer is made in a mixing bowl. No need to wash out the bowl in between recipes.
As the name states, the bottom half of the pie is a fudgy brownie layer while the top half is a chewy chocolate chip cookie layer. Serve it as is for a casual dessert or dress it up with some vanilla bean ice cream and hot fudge sauce for a decadent sundae pie.
