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?

Drizzle the remaining sweet milk over the filling. Spoon in the rest of the filling. Transfer to the oven and bake for 55-60 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool at least 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. Hi there! If I plan to make this 2 days in advance of serving, is it best to refrigerate it? Or keep it on the shelf in an airtight container? Thank you!

    1. Hey Jill,
      You can keep on the counter in an airtight container. I hope this recipe turns out amazing for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey Jo,
      I probably wouldn’t freeze this one just to maintain the gooeyness. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

    I made this for Thanksgiving and it was super easy to make! Smelled amazing coming out of the oven, I was so excited to eat it. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed. There was just way too much chocolate, the entire pie tasted like chocolate. It was overpowering and you couldn’t get any other flavor. I served this to 6 people and they all thought the same thing. I would definitely make this pie again, and just halve (or maybe even quarter) the amount of chocolate chips. Looking forward to trying again!

    Looks amazing! I will be making this for Thanksgiving and I can’t wait! I plan on also trying to decorate with Gingerbread men. Did you glaze the dough (Gingerbread men) with something? They have great color and shine! It also looks like there may be some powdered sugar on top as well.

    1. Hey Jenisa,
      You can just do a light egg wash on the top of the crust and course sugar:) I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    Do you not prebake this pie shell for this recipe?

    Thanks for sharing! I have one of your cookbooks and I found you at Barnes n noble before online 🥰

    1. Hey Mary,
      Correct, no need to pre-bake the pie shell, you can follow the recipe as is:) I hope you love the pie, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    This wasn’t one of my favorites…it didn’t have much flavor and was just very gooey. My daughter said there was too much chocolate…I didn’t have much of a cookie layer on mine as shown in the pictures. Oh well.

    1. Hey Lucy,
      So sorry you didn’t enjoy the recipe, was there anything you adjusted in the recipe? Please let me know how I can help. xTieghan

    1. Made it for Thanksgiving and the family absolutely loved it! I’m a novice baker, so I was looking for a recipe that wouldn’t be too complicated while still delighting guests. This was definitely it- a true home-run that I’ll be returning to each year. Thanks, Tieghan!

      1. Hi Colleen,
        I am so glad that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for trying it out! Happy Thanksgiving! xTieghan

    1. Hey Carrie,
      I have not tested this recipe with a graham cracker crust, but you can certainly give it a try! Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    1. Hey Jaclyn,
      I would recommend using Cup4cup GF flour. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Holidays! xTieghan

  6. Quick question… I am planning on making this tonight but I noticed in the pictures all of the chocolate is sitting in a layer sandwiched between the pie crust and the cookie dough. Is the pie in the picture a different one or is this something that occurs naturally during the baking process?

    Also … If you had to choose between this one and your Smore’s skillet cookie… which would it be 😄

    1. Hey Vanessa,
      This is something that occurs naturally when making the pie. This is my families absolutely favorite! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    1. Hey Carrie,
      I haven’t tried this but you certainly could. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    Made this for Thanksgiving this year with your All Butter Crust. Also made one with white chocolate chips and peanut butter chips since my brother-in-laws mom is allergic to chocolate. Everyone loved them!
