I think that chocolate chip cookies may be my all time favorite dessert. On this blog, I have posted three different versions of them including a vegan recipe, the famous Momofuku and the NY Times best cookie ever. If you look through some of my breads and muffins, I am always adding chocolate chips.
Who invented chocolate chips? They are perfection!
This recipe for deep dish cookie pie comes from Chocolate Covered Katie's blog. Not only are these vegan and gluten free--they have a bit of extra fiber thrown in----(shhh....there are beans in these).
I tried to make her cookie dough dip at Christmas and was not impressed--I kept thinking it was hummus with chocolate chips thrown in. I was a little apprehensive with these for that same reason but....I was pleasantly surprised. Fortunately for me, no one else was brave enough to try these and I ate the entire pan alone. But, they are healthy, right?
My dad is going to be celebrating my grandpa's 85th birthday this weekend and I am begging him to make these. His side of the family consists of All American folks--Pepsi, Doritos, and maybe some Costco potato salad-I would love to see if these can get snuck into the party dessert table. I expect that they will get snatched up at the party!
