The best ever Brown Sugar Maple Cookie Pie. A super simple pie made with browned butter, brown sugar, maple, eggs, and plenty of chocolate. All baked together until puffed on top, but gooey in the center. The crust is buttery, flaky, and sprinkled with sweet vanilla sugar. Inside the filling is warm with pockets of melted chocolate, notes of maple, brown sugar, and vanilla. Delicious when served with a dollop of vanilla whipped cream. It’s the perfect Thanksgiving pie…or maybe just the perfect Friday night dessert!

Happiest Friday everyone! We’re talking more pie today because…tis the season! Clearly, I’m loving that the holidays are already in full swing and it’s not even the middle of November. The snow today just gives things a magical holiday feel and I couldn’t love it more.

I’m also really loving this pie. It took me many, many tries to get it just right for you guys, but here we are! Delicious Friday pie for November!

I spent a lot of time thinking about desserts for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner. Originally, I didn’t have any pies to share this year. But then someone lit a fire under me and I became determined to crank out a least one pie this holiday season.

That fire was lit by Little Miss Asher (my younger sister). This pie rivals her favorite chocolate chip cookie pie. I blame the warm puddles of chocolate and crackly salted top. And you know, I am so glad she got me going.

It. Is. GOOD!

The background.

I’m sure some of you remember the brown sugar maple cookies I shared back in September. They’ve been a favorite cookie since the day I made them. Something about the combination of brown sugar and maple is just so delicious.

Which brings me to today’s recipe. I love a cookie pie, and I love those brown sugar maple cookies, so I wanted to attempt to combine the two. And what did I get? A cross between a cookie pie and a maple cream pie.

I didn’t know the two needed to be married together, but I do now. Guys, this pie is really really good.

The details

Start with the crust. I did make my own crust, and while I will tell you it’s better than store-bought. I will also tell you that if you don’t want to make the crust, you shouldn’t make the crust! Pies can be stressful, I get it. If the crust is stressing you out, pick up your favorite from the store. I hear Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have great options!

Once you have your crust sorted out, sprinkle it with vanilla sugar (simply just sugar mixed with vanilla beans). No pre-baking the crust for this pie, which I found kind of nice!

Now the filling, it’s easy and you don’t even need a mixer. What you do need is brown butter, so start with that. Just brown the butter on the stove until it smells nutty, then let it cool.

Next up, simply whisk together brown sugar, eggs, maple syrup, and cream. Then add in that brown butter and vanilla.

Whisk everything together and stir in plenty of chocolate.

A couple special touches

Chocolate chunks (or chips) folded into the batter just before baking. I prefer to use chunks for real puddles of melted chocolate, but chips work great too!

And then, vanilla sugar sprinkled over top of the crust for an extra sweet finishing touch. I did this with last year’s Molten Crackle Pie and it’s just the best special touch.

When the pie comes out of the oven, it will be very poofed on top with a slight bit of wiggle in the center. As the pie cools, it will fall and set up.

Wait a little bit to let it cool slightly, then cut and serve while still warm. Or at least that’s my personal favorite way to enjoy it. But honestly, this pie is great warm or cool, so serve how you like it.

And that’s kind of it! As always, my suggestion would be to test the pie tonight in preparation for Thanksgiving Day!

Enjoy! See ya tomorrow for another Thanksgiving cocktail!

Vanilla Cream


  • 1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
    2. Fit the pie crust into an 8-inch pie plate. Brush the edges of the crust with beaten egg, then sprinkle with vanilla sugar (or coarse sugar). Lightly prick the bottom of the dough with a fork. Freeze 10 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, add the butter to a small saucepan set over medium heat, cook until the butter begins to brown, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a heatproof bowl. Let cool.
    4. Whisk together the brown sugar and 2 eggs, and 1 egg yolk until well combined. Add the maple syrup and cream. Whisk in the brown butter and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into the crust.
    5. Bake for 55-60 minutes, until the pie is puffed on top, but still wiggly in the center. The longer you bake, the more set your pie will be. Remove from the oven and let cool 20-30 minutes, then serve the pie warm, sprinkled with sea salt (if desired), and dolloped with whip cream. Or serve are room temp. Both options are great!
    6. To make the whipped cream, whip the cream using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add the maple syrup and vanilla. Whip until combined and fluffy.


Vanilla Sugar: Mix 1/4 cup granulated sugar with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder or 1/2 of a vanilla bean – seeds scraped.

  • 1. In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and butter. Pulse until the mix clumps together to form pea-size balls. Add the hazelnut liquor (if using), then add 1/2 cup cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together and forms a ball. If the dough feels dry, add 1-2 tablespoons additional water.
    3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Roll out into 2 rounds. Use as directed.

    This pie is always a hit. Just made two and was hoping to freeze the extra one but not sure if it will still keep well if I throw in the oven in a week for a party. Do you recommend this? What temperature in the oven is best for reheat?

    1. Hey Samantha,
      Amazing!! So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it! I’ve never tried that, but I would probably cover with foil and reheat on low:) xT

    I love this recipe! Making it for company this weekend. If I use a frozen pie crust, do I just pull it out of the freezer, poke the holes and fill it? Thanks!

    1. 5 stars
      I’ve made this pie three times and love it! I make it gluten and dairy free (using frozen gf crust, vegan butter, and sub coconut cream for heavy cream)and it still tastes delicious. This pie is yummy warm or cold. It’s one of the best pies I’ve ever baked!

      1. Hey Natalie,
        Awesome!!🌼 I love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you and appreciate you giving it a try! xT

    2. Hey Cindy,
      Awesome!!🌼 I love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you and appreciate you giving it a try! Yes, the frozen crust might already have the holes in it:) xT

  3. How do you keep your pie crust from shrinking? I did pushed it down with my fork and froze it, but it still shrinks.

    1. Hi Kelsey,
      Did you only freeze for 10 minutes? Did you make a homemade pie crust? Any chance it was over-mixed? Let me know how I can help! xx

  4. I think I messed this up by using 1 and 1/2 cups of mini semi-sweet chips – it was way too chocolatey, but I want to try again for NYE! Tieghan, with the chocolate chunks, do you typically use 1 cup or 1 and 1/2 cups? Thanks!

    1. Hi Amanda,
      Thanks for giving this recipe a try! I typically do 1 1/2 cups, my family loves the chocolate:) Let me know if you try the recipe again! This is a pretty chocolatey pie! xx
