Pumpkin cookie pie answers the question, Should you make pumpkin cookies or pumpkin pie? Why not BOTH? In ONE pie recipe?? An easy pie crust filled with pumpkin spice cookie dough!
I am in love with my cookie pies, that’s for sure. Funfetti, candy, oatmeal – I’ve made so many! (And I have another one in the works!) I think I love cookie pie so much because it combines two things I love – cookies and pie. Plus, they’re so easy to make.
All you need to make a great cookie pie is a great cookie recipe and a pie crust. They bake up perfect every time! There’s no need to worry about the filling leaking or the cookies spreading too much – cookie pies are practically foolproof.
Since it’s totally pie season and we should all be eating pies for days and weeks (that’s the law in November, right?), why not make a cookie pie for Thanksgiving? Of course, if you’re going to to do that, it should be PUMPKIN.
This pumpkin cookie pie is even easier than all my other cookie pies. You know why? They start with my favorite – Krusteaz mixes!
First of all, I had no idea that Krusteaz even made a pie crust mix. (I’m a horrible excuse for a pie lover and ambassador, aren’t I?) In fact, their pie crust mix was their first product (just add water!) and it’s where Krusteaz got their name. Get it? Krust-eaz. Crust ease!
The pie crust mix is easy to work with. You literally just add water and stir, then roll and put it in your pie plate. Then you have to fill it with the cookie part of the cookie pie!
Have you seen the seasonal Krusteaz mixes? They have Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie bars, and this Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix. All of them are so good, so you should grab some if you find them. The pumpkin spice cookie mix is the perfect blend of pumpkin spices and it even comes with a glaze.
As always, making a Krusteaz mix is easy. In fact, they’ve become my daughter’s favorite brand. She knows that she can make an entire recipe without my help using their mixes. So they really are easy!! (Check out the first post on her new blog – it uses the gingerbread cookie mix!)
To make the pumpkin cookie pie:
Simply press the cookie dough into your prepared pie crust, bake, and top with the glaze. Then serve alone or with ice cream and you’ve got the perfect Thanksgiving dessert!!
