What's better than dessert? Dessert topped dessert!
Brownie layer, cheesecake layer with dough dough bits, all in pie form. This is so good! But so rich, a tiny piece is a must.
Signed up to bring a pie to the neighborhood party. Everyone expects me to make some fancy dessert, so even though I was crazy busy beforehand a store bought pie was a no no. So I found this recipe on pinterest, made two and took them. These were the first gone. I stole a slice before I left at least.
Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownie Pie
~For the Brownie Layer
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 brownie mix (for a 9x13 pan)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
~For the Cheesecake Layer
1 - 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 - 12 ounce container Cool Whip, divided
~For the Cookie Dough Bites
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon milk
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, divided
Unroll the pie crust according to the package directions. Place in a 10 inch pie plate and set aside.
Beat the brownie mix, oil, water, and egg until combined. Spoon into the pie crust. Cover the edges of the pie crust with foil to prevent them from burning. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Do not over bake. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
Beat the butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt until creamy. Add the flour and milk and beat again. Stir in 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips. Roll into 56 tiny cookie dough bites. Place on a wax paper lined tray and freeze until hard.
Beat the cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Fold in 3 cups of Cool Whip.
Cut the cookie dough bites in half. Reserve 10 balls (20 halves for the topping) Stir gently into the cheesecake filling. Spoon the filling gently on top of the cooled brownie.
Sprinkle the top of the pie with the remaining chocolate chips. Top with Cool Whip swirls and the reserved cookie dough bites. Cut into 12 pieces of pie. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
