But I really just cannot help it. Because you see; today in Chicagoland, it was in the high 40’s. And after this crazy, frigid winter we have had this season, the high 40’s truly felt like spring! I flung open all the windows in the house to air it out, ditched my winter coat, and had this insane craving……..for ice cream!!
Now, what would I make to go with this ice cream craving? Well, I kinda wanted a cookie. But not just any cookie. A cookie pie. Have you ever had a cookie pie? They are quite simply, amazing! The perfect treat to top off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, dripping with chocolate and butterscotch sauce!
Why butterscotch you may ask? Well, I absolutely adore butterscotch. In fact, when I made these Butterscotch Toffee Gooey Brownie Bars, I had mentioned how much I loved butterscotch lifesavers that my grandma used to give me as a kid. My mom actually found those lifesavers at Amazon on-line and bought me a huge box for my birthday after reading my post! 🙂 But I haven’t made anything else butterscotch since.
Then, I recently saw these amazing Butterscotch Cinnamon Rolls on Mom on Timeout and my craving for this great flavor resurfaced. Anyway, I had to put butterscotch chips in this delicious pie!
Spring is coming! I SO can’t wait!! But in the meantime, I am going to indulge in this amazing Butterscotch and Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie. Go ahead, make one for yourself and have a slice! I won’t tell!! 😉

- 1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust (I use Pillsbury refrigerated)
- 1/2 c. butter (1 stick) softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 t. vanilla
- 1/2 c. granulated sugar
- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c all-purpose flour
- 3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 c. butterscotch chips
- 1 c. chopped pecans
- Ice cream (optional)
- butterscotch and chocolate sauce (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9 inch pie plate with the pie crust.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter. Add the eggs, vanilla and both types of sugar and mix together. Add the flour and mix until blended.
- Stir in both chips and nuts and pour the whole mixture into the pie crust.
- Place in the oven and bake for 48-55 minutes, or until the center is set, the top is brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out fairly clean.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool at least 45 minutes before slicing it up and serving with ice cream and sauces.
