Nutella Cookies and Cream Pie - this easy NO BAKE cheesecake pie will disappear as soon as everyone gets one taste

 The other day I had a craving for pie.  A rich decadent piece of pudding pie was all I could think about.  Never mind the fact that I am still trying to watch what I am eating, and pie is not on the approved food list.

That didn’t matter!  All I could think about was making pie…and it had to be right away!  I started looking through my cupboards to see what I had available to use.  With freezing temperatures outside I didn’t want to run to the store just to satisfy my pie whimsy!

I found chocolate cookies and a jar of Nutella in one of the cupboards.  How either of those has remained unopened is a mystery to me!  My kids usually devour cookies and milk if I don’t keep them hidden.  Maybe all my food warnings have finally made an impression on them.  They have recently started to ask about EVERY food item now.

My son actually asked if a box of cereal was ok to eat or if it was for a treat.  I’m not sure whether to be happy that they know not to eat without asking…or sad because they think all food that I buy has a purpose.  Sadly yes, most sweet stuff does have a recipe or idea in my head :-)

Moving on to my refrigerator  I pulled out cream cheese, pie crust, and Cool Whip.  Yes, those are pretty much staples in my refrigerator.

What?  I have to be prepared for crazy baking whims.  You never know when those pie cravings are going to happen.  Am I right?

Nutella Cookies and Cream Pie

This is mostly a no bake pie…other than the pie crust.  That is only going to take you about 10 minutes, unless you want to go homemade.  I happen to love the Pillsbury pie crusts because they are easy, delicious, and save me time in the kitchen.  Anything that let’s me eat pie faster is a plus in my book.

After your pie crust is cooled, it is time to layer some no bake cheesecake and cookies.  This will take some time to set up, so if you are craving pie like a mad person keep that in mind.  Maybe do some laundry, dishes, or vacuuming to get your mind off the pie in the refrigerator.  I know it will be hard, but the end result is worth the time.  Although, there is nothing stopping you from just digging in right away.  You could skip the pie crust if you wanted and just layer it in jars for a fun portable treat.  It’s all about the options that make it easier and faster to consume!

The best part of this pie was seeing my oldest son’s eyes light up when he got home from school and saw it in the back of the fridge.  And yes, he did ask if I had already photographed it before he started digging in :-)

      It’s cheaper to make your own:
      Paula Deen’s Sweetened Condensed Milk
      • 1/3 cup boiling water
      • 4 tablespoons butter
      • 3/4 cup sugar
      • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
      • 1 cup powdered milk (recommended: Carnation)
      Using an electric mixer, blend together water, butter, sugar, and vanilla.
      Add powdered milk and blend until thick. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.

    My husband knows to stay out of the chocolate chips after I found 2 EMPTY packages of chocolate chips in my baking drawer! AND he didn’t get the cookies I was going to make for him! Shame! Bad husband!

    My roommate is the same way- whenever I bake something, she’ll ask if she can eat it now or if I have to take pictures first! So I usually let her have the “ugly” cookies that wouldn’t photograph well anyway.
    This looks amazing! I love that it’s no-bake (except for the pie crust.) and other than the waiting time, relatively simple.

    The true reward for all the baking has to be that sparkle eyed look you got from your son when he saw this pie and I the happy eyes he must have had while he ate it! Do your kids realize how amazing it is to have treats like this waiting for them in the fridge? !
