2014 Blogger Challenge: Cookie Pie Recipe

My boyfriend and I were feeling like we wanted something sweet, so we were going to make our usual light chocolate chip cookies (check out the recipe, here). Those are really yummy, but I wanted to try something different...I pulled up my handy dandy Pinterest page and saw a recipe for a cookie pie and said, "Why can't we make something fun like this??" My boyfriend said, "We can, let's do it!" so we ran to the store for candy and this is our final result! It totally hit the spot! It tasted very good, was soft, but dense at the same time and had lots of chocolatey goodness that we were craving.

We changed the original recipe a little because we tried to make it as "healthy" as possible. We also only used chocolate chips and M&Ms, but you can add lots of goodies to it for variety!

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted (We used half of 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt and the other 1/2 butter)
1 large egg (We measured out enough egg white to equal one large egg)
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar (We used Truvia)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
pinch salt, optional and to taste (We left this out)

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
about 1/2 cup M&Ms, divided (I used regular, but any type will work)
A few pieces of any other candy you want to add (rolos, peanut butter cups, or any other bite-sized candy bar)

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9-inch pie dish very well with cooking spray; set aside.
2. In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter, about 1 minute on high power. (We did not melt or heat up the yogurt at all; just melted the butter and mixed them together)
3. Wait before adding the egg so you don't scramble it. Add the egg, sugars, vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
4. Add the flour, optional salt, and stir until just combined.
5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
6. Add about 1/4 cup M&Ms and stir to combine; reserve remainder.
7. Smooth batter into prepared pie dish.
8. Evenly add the remaining M&Ms to the top of the batter, as well as the other candies of your choice. Push them down so the top is flush with the batter.
10. Bake for about 24 to 26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter.  If your pie has risen in the center, it will deflate as it cools.  The pie is meant to be slightly underbaked with crispy edges. 

For the recipe this is adapted from check out Averie Cooks. Hers is adorable because she used Valentine's and Easter candies that are so pretty!
