The best ever Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Pumpkin Pie for your Thanksgiving table…or maybe just your Friday night dessert. Classic homemade chocolate chip cookie pie, BUT made with the addition of pumpkin butter, pumpkin spice, and plenty of chocolate. The real secret to this pie…a touch of sweetened condensed milk to give the pie that gooey deliciousness. There’s nothing not to love! The crust is crisp, but the pie is soft and gooey. Deliciously swirled with pumpkin butter and extra chocolate…the perfect Thanksgiving pie.
With Thanksgiving getting closer and closer, I’m excited to finally be sharing this recipe with you guys! This is a pie that I actually came up with last year, but only recently perfected the recipe. I know, an entire year later. Sometimes recipes take a while to get just right. To be honest, I gave up working on this once Thanksgiving passed, then revisited the recipe a couple of weeks ago. I was determined to get it just right for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner. In case you missed it, I shared our full 2019 Thanksgiving Menu on Tuesday.
Anyway, I’m happy to be sharing this recipe with you all today. I’m also so happy it’s Friday and to be heading back home to Colorado today. I’m excited to not have to get on another plane for at least a couple of weeks. I fly home from Chicago today (I’ll be recapping the trip in Sunday’s favorite post). As of right now, I’m home until I leave for my next NYC trip in December. I’ve loved getting to meet so many of you, but you guys know me, I’m a homebody and nothing beats just being home.
On that note, let me tell you all about this pie. Yes, this pie is perfect for Thanksgiving. But as I always say, you MUST test your holiday recipes before serving to ensure they work perfectly for you. The good news is, this means pie this weekend…and then more pie on Thanksgiving!
Sounds great to me.
Any long-time readers might remember my gooey chocolate chip cookie pie from a few years ago. It’s one of my favorite desserts I’ve shared on HBH. That’s because it’s based off of my mom’s cookie pie recipe. It’s so funny because all my favorite recipes are the ones based off something my mom always made while I was growing up…
Traditions really are great!
My mom would make chocolate chip cookie pie for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s her “holiday” pie. I updated it a bit a few years ago. But this year I wanted to reinvent the pie just a little, yet still keep it gooey, and of course, extra chocolatey.
Enter this pumpkin version. This has everything you love most about a chocolate chip cookie pie, but with the addition of everything you love about a pumpkin pie. It’s as pretty close to perfect as it gets.
Just like a classic cookie pie, this pie is really simple and easy, but I do have a couple of tips that make this pie extra special.
Start with the crust. You can use homemade or store-bought. In my opinion, if making pie crust stresses you out, take help from the store. No one will ever know. If you want to make your own crust, here is my favorite super easy crust recipe.
Now, the cookie dough. It’s a little different because we’re using pumpkin, spices, and one very special ingredient…sweetened condensed milk.
Mix up the dough just as you would a normal cookie pie, but add in pumpkin butter and pumpkin spice. The pumpkin butter is a key ingredient. Pumpkin butter is more reduced down than pumpkin purèe and contains less moisture. Less moisture will give you a gooey, more flavorful pie. You can use my homemade pumpkin butter or pick some up at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, your local market, or via Amazon…though I’m partial to my homemade recipe. Just make sure your pumpkin butter is spiced for best flavor.
When the dough is mixed, it’s time to assemble, which brings me to the next key ingredient, sweetened condensed milk. I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t use sweetened condensed milk all that often, but I do love breaking it out over the holidays because I always find it’s add something special to baked goods.
The sweet milk is layered with the pumpkin cookie dough. As it bakes in the oven, the two marry together creating pockets of sweet gooiness throughout the pie.
No one will ever know what it is that makes the pie so delicious because it’s so 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.
But the best part?
This pie is incredibly easy to make. Just press the crust into your favorite pie plate, mix the cookie dough, layer it together with the sweet milk, bake, and about an hour or so later your kitchen will smell like the most wonderful bakery with hints of vanilla, pumpkin spice, and chocolate.
You can serve this slightly warm for a very GOOEY pie, or at room temperature for a more firm pie. It’s delicious either way. I’d recommend a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, but it’s amazing on its own as well.
Additionally, if you were having trouble choosing between a chocolate chip pie and a pumpkin pie, now you can have both in one. Nothing better than that!
