To all my super healthy, whole-food eating readers, this recipe is probably not for you. It really shouldn’t be for me either, as I try to make food that is processed as little as possible. BUT, it was my son’s birthday yesterday, and we have a tradition in our home that the birthday boy gets to pick whatever he wants to eat for dinner. Last night that meant spaghetti with meatballs and Alfredo sauce with cookie pie for dessert.
What is cookie pie? It’s not one of those lovely cookies cooked in a pie shape. It’s store-bought cookies, dipped in milk, put into a graham cracker crust, and topped with whipped cream. Definitely NOT health food. Are there things I could do to make it healthier? Sure, but I don’t do it, because I think it doesn’t hurt, once or twice a year, to have something as insanely processed as this. At least I made my own whipped cream. That has to count for something, right?
How does one make cookie pie? Watch and learn. You don’t even need an official recipe for this one, although it is based on one from Southern Living At Home: Easy Weeknight Favorites.
