Sometimes a gooey, soft chocolate chip gluten-free cookie pie is all you need. It's a basic moist cookie dough baked into a gluten-free pie crust. Think of it like a cookie cake and a pie mixed together. The cookie layer pairs perfectly with the buttery flakey pie crust in the pie plate. Trust me, you won't want to stop eating it! Although it looks complicated to make, it's actually quite simple and tastes delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It's so delicious you'll be eating the cookie crumbs!

- Gluten-free flour: I recommend using King Arthur or Cup4Cup gluten-free flour for this chocolate chip cookie pie recipe. Those are both my favorite gluten-free flours.
- Baking soda: gives the chocolate chip cookies a nice texture and golden color.
- Baking powder: helps the cookie pie rise a bit in the gluten-free cookie pie.
- Butter: make sure the butter is unsalted and melted.
- Eggs: 2 large eggs at room temperature.
- Brown sugar: gives the cookie pie that classic chocolate chip cookie taste. Don't skip the brown sugar!
- Sugar: I use granulated white sugar. I don't recommend replacing the sugar with coconut sugar or another sugar substitute. Coconut sugar may change the consistency of the gluten-free cookie pie.
- Chocolate chips: I use semi-sweet chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chunks. You can also use dark chocolate chips.
- Vanilla extract: you can use almond extract instead. I usually add one teaspoon vanilla extract, but feel free to double that amount.

Tips for a Perfect Pie
- Par-bake the crust first. --you want to park-bake the pie crust before filling it with the cookie dough. To do this, roll out the pie crust and place it into your pie pan. Then, place a piece of parchment paper over the crust and pour either fried beans or pie weights into the pie crust. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove from the oven and take the pie weights and parchment paper off of the pie crust. Use a fork to pierce the bottom of the pie crust and bake for 5 more minutes. Then remove from the oven.
- Roll out pie crust on plastic wrap. Then, roll the plastic wrap up and unroll it on top of the pie pan. This makes it easier to fill the pie pan with the crust.
- Let the finished cookie cake pie cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing it on a wire rack. You want the middle to be completely set so it's easier to cut. If you don't wait, the soft cookie dough might be too gooey.
- 9-inch Pie Pan
- Rolling Pin
- Glass mixing bowls
Store this cookie pie in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap for up to five days at room temperature. You can also freeze in a freezer-safe container or freezer-safe ziplock bag.
