Sometimes, it’s nice to enjoy a gooey, warm cookie after your Thanksgiving meal.

Don’t get me wrong — pie is a tasty tradition. But every once in a while, it’s fun to switch things up a little.

Not everyone is cool with this break from the norm. That’s why Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie is the perfect option.

You can have your pie. And your cookies too. No need to pick sides.

A rich buttery pie crust is filled with a slightly spiced chocolate chip cookie dough, baked until warm and gooey, and dusted with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Serve the cookie pie warm with a scoop of melty vanilla ice cream.

This cozy, festive recipe smells heavenly while it’s baking in the oven.

Oh my goodness this pie smells like the most cozy and comforting candle as it’s baking away in your oven! This pie is perfect for the holidays to add a little bit of perfectly spiced chocolate to the dessert table.

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie Ingredients

Pie crust

Make homemade pie crust or get a premade pie crust from the freezer section of your grocery store. I recommend making things easy. You wouldn’t believe how good some of the store-bought crusts taste! My favorite ones are from Trader Joe’s! Defrost the pie crust the night before so it’s ready to work with when you make the cookie pie.

Butter (softened)

I used salted butter for this recipe.

Sugar

Brown sugar

Vanilla

Eggs

Baking Staples

Flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon

Chocolate chips

Semi-sweet chocolate chips are just the right amount of sweetness for this recipe.

How To Make Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

1

Form the pie crust.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

Roll the pie crust out and fit it into a standard pie plate, cutting off the excess dough around the edges. Crimp the edges with your fingers and then set the pie crust aside.

2

Make the cookie dough filling. 

In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. 

Reduce the speed to low and mix in one egg at a time until combined. 

Mix in the vanilla extract. 

Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and mix until combined. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.

3

Assemble the pie. 

Transfer the cookie dough to the prepared pie crust and spread it in an even layer, being careful not to pull and tug on the pie crust. 

Create the topping by mixing sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the prepared pie.

4

Bake and serve!  

Bake the pie for 50-55 minutes or until it is golden brown and cooked through. 

Allow it to cool slightly. Serve with vanilla ice cream, and enjoy!

5

Wash the dishes. How sad.

Adding Festive Fall Vibes

If you have extra pie crust, cut it into decorative shapes like leaves or pumpkins. Gently place them on top of the pie before you put it in the oven to bake. 

Make sure to check the decorations near the end of baking. If they’re getting a little too brown and crisp, you can use foil over the top to prevent them from burning.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie FAQ

Can I make this cookie pie ahead of time?

Yes, you can make it ahead of time. You have two options. Make it up to a day in advance and serve at room temperature. Or, follow the recipe up until baking. Store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to bake the pie, simply slide it into the oven. Since it will be cold, you’ll need to add a few minutes to the baking time. 

Can I freeze cookie pie?

Yes, you can freeze already-baked cookie pie in an airtight, freezer-safe container. Or, you can assemble it, freeze it, and then thaw it in the fridge before baking it. Make sure to add a little extra time for baking since it will be coming cold from the fridge. 

What is cookie pie made of?

This chocolate chip cookie pie includes a buttery pie crust filled with cinnamon chocolate chip cookie dough and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. 

Is this the same thing as a Toll House Cookie Pie?

This is a variation on the classic Toll House Cookie Pie! We’ve added cinnamon for a festive twist, eliminated the nuts, and used slightly different proportions of ingredients.

What’s the origin of the Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie?

The recipe’s roots come from the invention of the chocolate chip cookie. According to Nestlé, the original chocolate chip cookie was invented in 1939 by Ruth Wakefield, who owned the Toll House Restaurant. She broke pieces of a Nestlé semi-sweet chocolate bar and added them to her cookies. She discovered the pieces held their shape, and the classic chocolate chip cookie was born. Since then, there have been many variations on the cookie, including the cookie pie.
