Today is a very special day. It’s a day for Funfetti Cake Batter Cookie Pie!

Cake Batter Cookie Pie!! This easy pie recipe is a giant cake batter cookie made from scratch in a pie crust!

Birthdays are a big deal to me. They always have been. When I was a kid, birthdays were big events and they still are for me today. No matter who is having a birthday in the family, I want to make sure the day is super special.

Today, there’s a birthday in my family. It’s not me (that’s tomorrow, actually!) and it’s not even a person. A thing is having a birthday and I’m celebrating big-time today.

(Actually, I’m sitting on an airplane coming home from a food blogging conference. But I’m celebrating in spirit!)

Okay, so long story short: Crazy for Crust is having her birthday today. She’s 5!!

Cake Batter Cookie Pie

I celebrate my blog birthday every year because I think of the birth of my blog as the birth of the true and real me. Writing this blog has made me figure out who I am, what I want to do with my life, and it’s instilled a confidence in me I didn’t know I had.

I spent several adult years in a job (teaching) that I’d thought all my life would be my passion but it wasn’t. Then I spent 5 years as a stay-at-home mom who should not have been a stay-at-home mom. Really, I was not cut out for that, emotionally, but I did it because I didn’t want to go back to teaching and I didn’t have very many other options. (Long story.)

Then Jordan started Kindergarten and I started this blog. And I feel like the life I have now began.

This year, my blog would be starting Kindergarten. What’s that saying? “All I really need to know about life, I learned in Kindergarten?”

All I really need to know about life, I learned blogging:

Funfetti Cake Batter Cookie Pie Recipe

Share everything (on social media over and over and over).

Don’t take things that aren’t yours (recipe stealers suck).

Wash your hands before you bake (duh).

Warm cookies and milk are good for you (again, duh).

Live a balanced life (um, still working on that one).

Learn some and think some and be creative (blogging is like learning a new language and all things creative all in one).

Take a nap every afternoon (because, hey, we work from home so we can).

And finally, Look (be present, look around you, life is what you make it).

Blogging has taught me lots of things. Namely, how to be me.

And it’s also taught me that I like Cake Batter very, very much.

An easy Cake Batter Cookie Pie Recipe!

I think this might be one of my favorite pies ever. This one is a close second, and it’s not very different from this cake batter version.

It’s a giant funfetti cake batter cookie in a pie crust. IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER?

(Just agree with me, mmkay? It’s my blog’s birthday.)

The dough for the cookie is based off of my favorite blondie recipe. I used a combination of brown and granulated sugars to give it more of a sugar cookie like flavor, but the brown sugar gives it a rich tone like a normal blondie has.

There is no actual cake batter or mix in this cookie. It’s a giant from-scratch cookie that gets it’s cake batter flavor from butter extract. They sell butter extract at most grocery stores nowadays and I’ve used it in so many funfetti recipes. It just adds that cake-like flavor without using a mix. If you don’t want to buy the extract, just use more vanilla. Or add some almond extract. Either works just fine!

The cookie is filled with sprinkles (obvi, life is more fun with sprinkles!) as well as chocolate and vanilla chips. All of this is pressed into a pie crust. Use a packaged crust or my all butter pie crust, either will work just fine. Bake and then eat straight from the pan, warm, with a fork.

Or be responsible and use a plate. But then you need to add ice cream and more sprinkles.

This Cake Batter Cookie Pie recipe couldn't be easier to make! It's a giant cake batter cookie in a pie crust. We couldn't stop eating this pie!

Thank you to all of you for all your support these past 5 years. You guys have changed my life, and I love you all for it! I want to send an extra special sprinkle-filled thank you to the wonderful women I’ve met through blogging. This job would not be possible without any of you. ❤️

Enjoy this pie!

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (You can also use a hand mixer.) Cream until smooth. Add eggs and extracts and mix until smooth. Add baking powder and salt, mix, then slowly add flour and mix until just combined. Stir in sprinkles, white chocolate and milk chocolate chips.
  • Unroll pie crust into a 9” pie plate and crimp edges as desired. Place dough into the pie plate and press to flatten. The dough is very wet, it’s helpful if you spray your hands with cooking spray or dampen them before spreading the dough evenly in pie plate.
  • Place pie on a cookie sheet and bake for 38-44 minutes until the crust is browned and the pie is browned on top. The center will be slightly jiggly but not too much so - it’ll finish baking as it cools.
  • Cool completely before slicing. Serve plain or with ice cream or whipped cream.
  • Store covered at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  1. There was so much batter, that I think it prevented it from baking completely at the given time and temp. If I were to bake this again, I think I might try to divide the batter between 2 pie plates. I had to put it back into the oven for about 13 minutes beyond the recommended time and it still wasn’t done. A toothpick inserted came out clean, but when cut, the dough oozed and the cut piece didn’t retain the clean sides as shown in the picture. It was overly sweet, but the ice cream helped to mitigate that.

    1. We like it gooey – but chances are the top browned too quickly preventing the inside from baking all the way. If you notice this happening anytime you bake, lower the oven temp by 25 degrees and/or tent the top of the item with foil.

  2. Instead of butter extract, could you use cake batter extract? Or would that be way to strong? By the way, I love this pie!

    1. Yes! I need to update this recipe because I made it before cake batter extract existed. Omit all extracts in the recipe and use 1 tsp cake batter extract.
