I made you a pie.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie I howsweeteats.com

Well, okay… I made you the filling of a pie.

I bought the crust.

I don’t do crusts. Remember when I tried? Yeah… not happening.

But I made croissants so that makes up for it. Hmmpf!

 

Way back when I shared a chocolate chip cookie pie that I found on a yellowed scrap of newspaper in my mom’s recipe box… and it literally tasted like a giant chocolate chip cookie. It was oooey and gooey and even… chewy. Yes.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie I howsweeteats.com

I’ve only made it once since then because if it’s made, it’s eaten.

By me.

All of it.

Just try it. Double dare.

 

So… I made the pie with pumpkin. Know why? Because I dreamt it. Yep. I’m totally serious.

I woke up on Sunday morning with one thought in my mind: pumpkin chocolate chip cookie pie. It was blaring in my head like a siren. I have no idea why.

Alright, I sorta do.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie I howsweeteats.com

See, for the last four weeks I’ve been trying to perfect a seriously CHEWY pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. Yes, I’ve had the normal pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They were one of the first recipes I ever posted here, complete with pictures to make your skin crawl. Buuuut… I’m done with them. I don’t even want to see another one. I want chew, not cake. CHEW. If I want a cakey cookie, I’ll make a darn cake. I want a cookie that chews and spits out melty chocolate chips.

I’m probably the reason for the pumpkin shortage because, um… I think I’ve gone through at least 10 cans trying to perfect these stupid chewy cookies. It’s driving me insaaaaaaaane! Good news is I’ve nailed it and will share it soon enough. Better news is that this pie was worth sharing over those cookies.

I’m convinced waking up with pumpkin cookie pie on the brain was the universe’s way of telling me to lay off the cookies.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie I howsweeteats.com

Oh, except for one thing. The pumpkin… it kind of took away the chew of the pie. *hangs head*

Not all of it. It’s still cookie-like, it just definitely adds a bit of cakey-ness. But I’m not one to complain. (<– really? since I’ve now complained this entire post.) I’m so annoyed with pumpkin right now. Why can’t it have chew-inducing molecules, or whatever the heck it has to have to stop being so cakey?

Anyway, I wanted to pie myself in the face with this. If that tells you anything.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Yield: males one 9-inch pie

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 55 minutes

Total Time: 1.5 hours

Ingredients:

2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/3 cup pureed pumpkin
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup chocolate chips
1 unbaked pie shell
whipped cream or ice cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat eggs until foamy. Beat in flour, sugar and brown sugar until well blended. Add in vanilla extract, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice and mix until combined.. Blend in melted butter with mixer on low speed, then gradually increase to high and beat until mixture is combined and you have a batter. Toss chocolate chips with a sprinkling of flour and fold into batter. Pour into an unbaked 9-inch pie shell. Bake for 55 minutes, or until center is no longer jiggly.

Serve warm with ice cream of whipped cream.

Edited to add: I have tested this recipe four times and the measurements are correct. You MUST cool your butter completely. You also MUST use an electric mixer. And third, you MUST mix the butter in thoroughly with your electric mixer until a batter is formed like the first picture above. Feel free to add more pumpkin, but if you do that you will essentially have a pumpkin cake inside a pie crust. Other than that, the measurements are spot on. The key is you must, must, must let that butter cool.

P.S. Sorry about the store bought crust. But not really.

    I am just not into pumpkin. I went through a pumpkin stage (as Keith calls it) a few years ago where I would literally eat pumpkin every night in some form after dinner for dessert. This stage lasted for about 8 months. I now can not even look at a can of pumpkin without turning an ugly shade of green. What have I done to myself?

    Ok this is a truly fail proof pie crust recipe:

    One cup shortening
    One cup hot (or warmish) water
    three cups flour-added gradually

    I promise you can’t mess it up. It makes two crusts.

        holdy crud- growing up- my dad made pie crust… but it always HAD to be ice water (even with little chunks of ice still floating in it), and cold lard, shortning or butter. Also a pinch of salt. Hmmmm-mm now I am going to hav to trythis way ans see the difference. Good thing Holiday cooking is coming up, and pie crusts will get used. I also use left over scraps for pie sticks. (Muaha-ha-ha )

        • Laura — October 5th, 2011 @ 12:34 am

          That’s so interesting about the cold water…maybe I’ll try that. I know I usually chill the dough before using it, so maybe that cuts out a step???

    You can make chewy pumpkin cookies by cooking the pumpkin down on the stove first. It cooks off a lot of the water and just leaves the puree. Works great!

    You should try adding a package of pudding mix to the recipe… somehow. Alls I know is whenever I have added pudding mix to anything, it gets caramelized on the outside and chewy on the inside.
    And while I have no particular adjustments you should make or exact measurements I can give you, I have faith in your tinkering abilities :)

    NOW I know who’s stealing all the pumpkin! (I know I don’t live near you, but maybe you came down to the Washington D.C. area to buy all the pumpkin. You never know.) I was determined this weekend to make your Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I couldn’t find pumpkin anywhere. I went to three grocery stores, and they were all sold out. Now you’ve made this delicious looking pumpkin cookie pie, and I want to make that too. I must find pumpkin!

    I can do homemade crust. You know what the secret is? Hands on tutoring by somebody who’s been doing it for years. However, I haven’t figured out how to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies chewy. I’ve been wishing I could for years. You master the cookies and I’ll teach you pie crusts. Or ship them to you on dry ice. Do you have any idea how much better my autumns will be if the pumpkin cookies are chewy gooey instead of cakey?

    Make pie crust in the food processor, it makes things a lot easier and helps you get your hands away from the dough! I always use ice cold water and 100% butter–I’m not a fan of margarine and if anyone ever tells you, you can’t make a flaky pie dough with butter…they are wrong! :)

    THANK YOU for championing store-bought crusts. I’ve always been embarrassed to say that the fun of pie making is about the filling. Sure, homemade crusts can be great, but you inevitably have guests who “don’t like crust” anyway, and then all that work you put in… !! I always, unapologetically use Marie Callender’s. They’re FINE. I said it – and so did you! Thanks for backing me up on this one! :)
