Favorite pie…LIKE EVER!

Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie | @hbharvest

OK, well, I love pecan pie too, but THIS gooey chocolate chip cookie pie…oh my gosh, oh my gosh! I know it sounds simple (and it is), and I’m sure you’re very familiar with a chocolate chip cookie pie, but this chocolate chip cookie pie is like no other.

I hate when people make claims like “the best”, but in my honest opinion (and my family’s), this is the BEST chocolate chip cookie pie. It’s insanely chocolatey, insanely gooey, and perfectly sweet. Aka my favorite things when it comes to dessert. Plus, let’s just be totally honest. I know there are a million and one desserts out there, but I feel like everyone has a serious sweet spot for anything cookie related. This pie is just a giant cookie…but with pie crust on the bottom, so it’s even better. 🙂

Also, this pie makes me super excited for Christmas…shh, don’t tell anyone about those tiny little gingerbread men lookin’ all cute sitting on the top of that crust. My crazy Christmas loving mind just took over and I just had to add them to the crust. Because I mean, pie is great for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, right?


So, you guys might be looking down at this recipe list and wondering just what makes this pie so much better than any other…just wait for it, it’s coming. My mom has made the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie for as long as I can remember. She didn’t make it for Thanksgiving (that I remember), but more for Christmas and other random special occasions throughout the year.

Just like the rest of the world, my family loves this pie, so I’ve added it to our Thanksgiving menu as well. But you guys, last Thanksgiving I did something a little different to my cookie pie and this one ingredient was the game changer.

Everyone, say hello to chocolate chip cookie pie made with sweetened condensed milk…and vanilla. Actually, I’ve always added vanilla but I only recently realized that it’s not part of the original recipe. Tip: always add vanilla peeps.

It was holiday baking season, and as usual at that time of year, I had been been baking up a storm…I had an open can of sweet milk in the fridge that was bugging the heck out of me (I hate when I have open cans of things in the fridge – things without tops just stress me out) and I wanted that can outta my fridge as soon as possible. So as I was making my pie, I thought why the heck not add a drizzle or two of sweetened condensed milk? I mean, it is one of my favorite ingredients, so I just went for it.

Little did I know that I had just created the best pie I will probably ever make. I know it seems crazy, but just trust me on this, the sweetened condensed milk adds that “something special” to the pie that made me go “ahhhhh yummmmmmm” and do the whole eyes rolling back thing upon taking the first bite. No one will ever know what it is that makes the pie so good because it is very subtle. The sweet milk just adds that extra special sweetness and a major gooey factor.

I mean, it’s just so freaking good…addictingly GOOD.

Another great thing about this pie…it is just so easy! I do make my own homemade crust, but guys no judgment here if you opt to use store-bought. While I personally find homemade to be much better, sometimes we just need a little help from the store.

I get it.

The most important thing here is the filling which is a grand total of eight ingredients, all of which I really hope you have at home right this second. They are all pantry staples people, you need these stocked, especially during the holidays!

Random question: how many pies do you guys make for Thanksgiving? I always make at least two, this pie, pecan pie and then if my brother Brendan is coming I’ll make pumpkin too (no Brendan this year ?…but Christmas is mandatory for everyone!)

Oh and if you guys where wondering, yes, I have been waiting and entire year to tell you about this pie. A whole year! I had to wait because Thanksgiving just felt like the perfect time to share this easy pie. The good news is that now you have the recipe, and you can make it not only for Thanksgiving, but for Christmas as well…and any other day!

Like say maybe today? It is Friday, and after Tuesday’s election I know that America is feeling the need to de-stress. So let’s call it a week and end on a super sweet note, sound good?

  1. I have recently discovered your recipes and I am enjoying them. The Pesto Toscano Soup is to die for! Thank you for your skill and sharing it with me. Regarding the pie, I would like to have more cookie and a bit less chocolate. Can you offer a suggestion on the measurements to achieve that? Many thanks, Ila

    1. Hey Ila,
      Thanks so much for your kind message and trying some recipes!! You could reduce the chocolate chips to your liking:) I hope you love this recipe! xT

    1. Hi Haley,
      Wonderful!! I love to hear that you enjoyed this recipe! Thanks so much for your feedback and trying the recipe! Happy Thanksgiving! xT

    1. Hi Brittney,
      You can fully make this pie in advance and serve at room temp or just cover with foil and pop in the oven on low for 15 minutes just to warm through. I hope you love this recipe! xx

    As usual another fantastic recipe from HBH. I made this for friendsgiving and everyone loved it. The only change I made to the recipe was using 1 cup of chocolate chips instead 2 cups, just based off of the comments I read. This was delicious served with some ice cream! Definitely will be using this recipe again for the holidays!

    1. Hey Ashlyn,
      I appreciate you giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback! Love to hear that it was a winner:) x

  3. I would like to try this recipe but have a couple of questions. Do you use unsalted butter? Also, do you recommend light brown sugar or dark brown?

  4. I would like to try this recipe for thanksgiving but I have a couple questions first.
    What size pie dish?
    Do you pre-bake your pie crust?
    How long does pie stay fresh?

    1. Hi Brittany,
      I would use a 9 inch pie dish. You do not need to pre-bake your pie crust. This is good at room temp for up to 4 days. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

  5. Second time making this. I know a lot of people complained that the chocolate chips sink to the bottom. I used mini chocolate chips this time (1.5 cups instead of 2) and did not have this problem! I also used a bit less sweetened condensed milk than in the recipe. It came out perfectly. Hope this helps some people!

    1. Hey Jill,
      Happy Monday!! I am so glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it! Thanks for sharing about the mini chocolate chips! xT

    1. Hi Alexandra,
      I’ve never tested this, but I don’t see why not! Please let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xT

      1. Hello,
        I have made this 4 times including just now. The first 2 times the chips seem to sink and make a layer of gooey chocolate. ( looking like your pics). The last 2 times they didn’t separate near as much. What am I doing wrong now?
        Thank you,

        1. Hi Tim,
          Thanks for making this recipe!! Hmmm, was there anything you adjusted the second time around? Sorry to hear this! Does it still taste okay? xx

    I had some friends over last night and I made this for an easy dessert to offer after the Buffalo white chicken tacos…YUM. Both were obviously a hit. One q, though. All of my chocolate chips went to the bottom of the pie. Is there some hack for that? Maybe coating them in flour or something before adding them to the mix? Thanks for the help!!!

    1. Hey Mary Elizabeth,
      Happy Monday!!⛄️ Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback, I love to hear that it turned out well for you! Totally normal for the chocolate chips to do that! xT
