I hate when people make claims like “the best”, but in my honest opinion (and my family’s), this is the BEST chocolate chip cookie pie.Also, this pie makes me super excited for Christmas…shh, don’t tell anyone about those tiny little gingerbread men lookin’ all cute sitting on the top of that crust.My mom has made the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie for as long as I can remember.She didn’t make it for Thanksgiving (that I remember), but more for Christmas and other random special occasions throughout the year.Just like the rest of the world, my family loves this pie, so I’ve added it to our Thanksgiving menu as well.Actually, I’ve always added vanilla but I only recently realized that it’s not part of the original recipe.So as I was making my pie, I thought why the heck not add a drizzle or two of sweetened condensed milk?I know it seems crazy, but just trust me on this, the sweetened condensed milk adds that “something special” to the pie that made me go “ahhhhh yummmmmmm” and do the whole eyes rolling back thing upon taking the first bite.The most important thing here is the filling which is a grand total of eight ingredients, all of which I really hope you have at home right this second. .

The crust is buttery, flaky, and sprinkled with sweet vanilla sugar.Inside the filling is warm with pockets of melted chocolate, notes of maple, brown sugar, and vanilla.The snow today just gives things a magical holiday feel and I couldn’t love it more.I spent a lot of time thinking about desserts for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner.But then someone lit a fire under me and I became determined to crank out a least one pie this holiday season.I blame the warm puddles of chocolate and crackly salted top.I’m sure some of you remember the brown sugar maple cookies I shared back in September.Next up, simply whisk together brown sugar, eggs, maple syrup, and cream.I prefer to use chunks for real puddles of melted chocolate, but chips work great too!And then, vanilla sugar sprinkled over top of the crust for an extra sweet finishing touch.I did this with last year’s Molten Crackle Pie and it’s just the best special touch.When the pie comes out of the oven, it will be very poofed on top with a slight bit of wiggle in the center.Wait a little bit to let it cool slightly, then cut and serve while still warm.As always, my suggestion would be to test the pie tonight in preparation for Thanksgiving Day!Lastly, if you make this Brown Sugar Maple Cookie Pie, be sure to leave a comment and/or give this recipe a rating! .

The best ever Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Pumpkin Pie for your Thanksgiving table…or maybe just your Friday night dessert.The real secret to this pie…a touch of sweetened condensed milk to give the pie that gooey deliciousness.Deliciously swirled with pumpkin butter and extra chocolate…the perfect Thanksgiving pie.To be honest, I gave up working on this once Thanksgiving passed, then revisited the recipe a couple of weeks ago.I’m also so happy it’s Friday and to be heading back home to Colorado today.I fly home from Chicago today (I’ll be recapping the trip in Sunday’s favorite post).I’ve loved getting to meet so many of you, but you guys know me, I’m a homebody and nothing beats just being home.Any long-time readers might remember my gooey chocolate chip cookie pie from a few years ago.My mom would make chocolate chip cookie pie for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.When the dough is mixed, it’s time to assemble, which brings me to the next key ingredient, sweetened condensed milk.I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t use sweetened condensed milk all that often, but I do love breaking it out over the holidays because I always find it’s add something special to baked goods.As it bakes in the oven, the two marry together creating pockets of sweet gooiness throughout the pie.Just press the crust into your favorite pie plate, mix the cookie dough, layer it together with the sweet milk, bake, and about an hour or so later your kitchen will smell like the most wonderful bakery with hints of vanilla, pumpkin spice, and chocolate.If you make this gooey chocolate chip cookie pumpkin pie, be sure to leave a comment and/or give this recipe a rating! .

Delicious when served with a dollop of vanilla whipped cream and chocolate curls on top.Think warm, with a molten center, notes of vanilla, a crackly top, and a homemade crust.The crust is simple, chocolate wafer cookies, toasted hazelnuts, and butter.The hazelnuts add a special hint of holiday flavor that I love.Blend everything in a food processor until the cookies and nuts are fine crumbs, then press the mix into a pie plate and chill.So we’re making a mocha pudding with a bit of espresso, lots of chocolate, vanilla, and creamy coconut milk.I really wanted a double layer of creamy chocolate, so I whipped some cream with cocoa powder and added a splash of Kahlua.Spread the chocolate cream over the pudding, then chill the pie until ready to serve.Yep, roll your eyes back, go for that second slice, and finish the pie in one sitting kind if good!Thankfully, this pie recipe has no rolling out of crusts, no oven, and nothin fancy!Lastly, if you make this Double Chocolate Mocha Pudding Pie, be sure to leave a comment and/or give this recipe a rating! .

The crust is buttery, flaky, and sprinkled with sweet vanilla sugar.Delicious when served with a dollop of vanilla hazelnut whipped cream.It’s been a long week for us all, but I love that we can end it on such a sweet note with some Thanksgiving pie!I think the silver lining of this past year is that it’s really making me appreciate, and look forward to even the smallest things.Everything this year just feels even more special and I want to make our holiday menu as close to perfect as can be!I spent a lot of time thinking about desserts for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner.That very first photo I have pictured in my head was the inspiration behind this pie…but I wanted my pie to be a little more molten-like and served warm.It’s served warm with a big dollop of homemade hazelnut whipped cream.While the pie is truly delicious and beautiful with that crackled top, it’s actually the simplest to make.What you do need are eggs, a little cocoa powder, sugar, instant coffee, and butter.it’s a pricey ingredient, but if you make a lot of holiday cocktails, it’s definitely a liquor I would recommend keeping on your bar cart.And lastly, vanilla sugar sprinkled over top of the crust for an extra sweet finishing touch.Wait twenty or so minutes, then cut and serve while still warm and gooey, with an extra-large dollop of whipped cream.It’s like a mug of warm hot chocolate, a fudge brownie, and molten pie all in one.Roll your eggs back, go for that second slice, and finish the pie in one sitting, GOOD.Call it a week and end on a super sweet note with this pie.Lastly, if you make this Molten Chocolate Crackle Pie, be sure to leave a comment and/or give this recipe a rating! .

I reasoned with myself that the post I had planned to share could easily be saved for next week.And that today was good day for something over the top, extra delicious, and very fitting for the Derby tomorrow.In year’s past I’ve made oven fried southern hot honey chicken (a tried-n-true reader favorite) and my Nonnie’s pecan pie (my family’s personal favorite).But this year I got so caught up in Cinco de Mayo recipes that I kind of forgot about the Derby.It’s also crazy that I’ve now been writing, cooking, photographing, and working on HBH for 6 1/2 years.For the “crust” or bottom layer of the bars, I press my go-to, base cookie recipe, into a baking dish.I like to sweeten it with real maple syrup so that bars don’t become overly sweet.As the cookie layer finishes baking it rises up over the pecan layer, creating an almost swirled like cookie bar with chocolate chips and pecans bursting up on top.I know it will be SO tempting to cut into the warm bars, but they need time to cool in order to properly set up.These bars are incredibly fudgy and gooey, so cutting into them warm is just a bit too messy.Friday can be decadent, enjoy it, and bake up some cookie bars for Derby Day tomorrow.If you make these Kentucky Derby pie bars, be sure to leave a comment and/or give this recipe a rating! .

Peach Oatmeal Skillet Cookie Pie

Peach Oatmeal Skillet Cookie Pie

Because this here – Caramelized Peach + White Chocolate Oatmeal Skillet Cookie Pie – is so completely out of my comfort zone.Things with fruit and white chocolate as the stars are just a foreign concept to me.I mean, I still dream about this crumble, this pie, this dump bake and these caramel apples (LOVE THESE).Every time they do happen I wonder why I don’t make non-chocolate sweet things more often.Check back with me a few weeks into September and… pretty sure I will be more than ready for pumpkin by then.Like give me all the berries, all the stone fruits, all the melons, all the tomatoes, corn, zucchini and everything in-between.This skillet cookie/pie you see here, was actually inspired by anther favorite dessert I made last fall.I was going to put cookie on the bottom too, but then I realized that would mean having to scoop out the caramelized peaches from the skillet and onto a plate.So the peaches stay on the bottom in the sweet self made caramel sauce and the oatmeal cookie studded with white chocolate gets baked right on top.In true Gerard family fashion, I just added a heck of a lot of sweet vanilla ice cream (an absolute must with this), handed everyone some spoons and said dig in.This dish is perfect for these late summer days that can sometimes have a little bit of a chill to them.It’s the perfect mix of hot cookie and cold ice cream.Caramelized Peach and Whole Wheat White Chocolate Oatmeal Skillet Cookie Pie.The accuracy of the nutritional information for any recipe on this site is not guaranteed.4-6 ounces white chocolate chopped into chunks (about 1 cup) Instructions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.Spoon out about 2 tablespoons of the sauce for serving (you do not have to do this, it just makes for nice presentation.).In a large mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, add the oatmeal, white whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, melted coconut oil, eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla.Top with vanilla ice cream and the reserved butter/caramel sauce from caramelizing the peaches. .

The crust is rich, buttery, full of vanilla chocolate flavor, and with the perfect touch of saltiness.The fact that I don’t already have a recipe for chocolate cream pie is kind of shocking to me.I’m sure I’ve mentioned this previously, but growing up my mom was a two pie kind of baker.I would kill to have the book today, but sadly it’s lost with a lot of her other cookbooks.That cake on the cover, some crazy delicious peanut butter cups, and an old-school chocolate cream pie.My obsession with vintage recipes is no joke, so over the last week, I decided I’d try to recreate that pie I had pictured in my head.Then use salted butter which will give the crust that perfect salty, sweet combo.It’s a pricey ingredient, but if you make a lot of cocktails, it’s definitely a liquor I would recommend keeping on your bar cart.To serve, I like to spread a honey whipped cream over top with a dusting of cocoa powder and chocolate shavings.It has a rich, salty-sweet crust with the creamiest most luscious smooth chocolate filling that melts in your mouth.So delicious that even though I made five and a half pies trying to perfect this, I’m still excited to mix one up again today to show the exact how-to on Instagram.Lastly, if you make this Old Fashioned Chocolate Cream Pie be sure to leave a comment and/or give this recipe a rating! .
