Hot Little Chocolate Chip Cookie Pies…
Good Monday morning everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend. Busy busy over here, but nice. Here we are another Monday. Well, take a look at these little cuties to brighten up any Monday morning blues. They are hot and fresh out of the oven, flaky, sweet and delish!
So basically, you take your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough and place it into pie crust circles, fold over and bake. The outcome is a fun sinful little cookie pie. I will suggest you eat these babies warm out of the oven, absolutely scrumptious this way. I’d even say top them with vanilla ice cream for an extra sweet treat.
Not sure what my deal is with all these cookies lately. Not doing a thing to help my waistline that’s for sure! Hope you all enjoy!
1 roll Pillsbury Pie Crust, thawed and cut into 12 2 1/2 inch circles (I used a cup to press out all the circles)
1 batch of your favorite cookie dough
1 egg white plus 1 teaspoon water
3 Tablespoons Turbinado sugar or normal granulated sugar
Powdered sugar for dusting on top
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place all 12 pie crust circles onto a baking sheet. With a small cookie scoop, place a heaping teaspoon of cookie dough into the center of each pie round, pressing cookie dough down slightly without touching edges of pie crust. DO NOT overfill each pie, if too full the dough breaks through the pie.
2. Dip your finger in water and brush bottom 1/2 of the pie crust edge with water and fold top crust over to seal. Using fork tines, press to seal around edges. Continue until all crusts are sealed. Poke each little pie on top once or twice for steam holes. Lightly brush each pie with egg white whisked with a teaspoon of water then sprinkle with turbinado sugar (normal sugar is also fine). Bake for 20-22 minutes or until pie crust is just barely golden. Note that some of the cookie will escape through the pie crust, if this happens, just cut them in half and no worries. To prevent it, make sure you don’t overfill your crusts.
3. Just before serving sprinkle with powdered sugar and even ice cream if desired. Make sure to enjoy these warm, shortly after out of oven!!
