Brownie cheesecake pie has kind of become my thing to make.  You aren’t surprised are you?

There is something about that ooey, gooey, fudge-y brownie topped with a cheesecake that makes me go weak in the knees.  I can’t stop making them…or eating them.  My pants kind of hate me for it!

It has been a while since the last brownie pie, so last weekend I started brainstorming new crazy creations that would work with the brownie pie.  I also was thinking up some new cookie dough treats to try out.  All of a sudden a lightbulb went off!  Why not marry the two together?

Seriously this was the best idea ever!

The brownie gets baked in a pie crust first.  Now if you are a domestic queen and love making your own pie crusts…go for it.  It totally will work.  But this pie has quite a few layers and steps, so I went with a refrigerated pie crust.  Anything that saves me time in the kitchen is my friend.  It just means I am one step closer to enjoying a slice of pie.

One more confession…I also used a boxed brownie mix.  My reason…see above.  Feel free to experiment and make your own but your baking times will probably be a little different.  You see I don’t use the directions on the box.  We want this brownie to be rich and fudge-y, so the directions are modified slightly.

While the brownie bakes, get started on your cookie dough pieces.  There is no egg in this cookie dough, so it is safe to eat without cooking.  I may have been sampling the dough as I rolled the tiny balls.  One for the pan, one for me.  Reason #2 in this post of why my pants are angry with me.

Make sure you roll the balls smaller than you normally would.  The recipe makes 56 small bites.  Not that biting into a large dough ball chunk is a problem, but we want to have enough to spread out over the entire filling.  Place the cookie dough balls on a wax paper lined tray and place in the freezer.  Leave them there until later.

Let the brownie pie cool completely, then whip up the no bake cheesecake to place on top.  Cream cheese mixed with brown sugar and Cool Whip creates this light fluffy filling that compliments that dark, rich brownie pie so well.

Take the cookie dough bites out of the freezer and cut them in half.  Just trust me!  You want want to spread the cookie dough love around in the pie.  Make sure to set aside 10 balls (20 halves) for the topping. Stir the rest into the cheesecake filling gently, then spoon the filling on top of the cooled brownie.

Top it all off with some mini chocolate chips, Cool Whip swirls, and the extra cookie dough pieces.  Then get ready to face plant!

Seriously!  It is that amazing!

 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!   [Read more...]
