EASY AS PIE! Cookie Dough Pie

The question was asked a few times....what kind of cookie dough is in this. Actually none. This is sooo easy and soooo good. I found this recipe on It has some great recipes so check it out since I am total slacker! Here is the recipe...such a great summer treat!

Cookie Dough Pie

15.25 ounce package Chips Ahoy Cookies- Original kind

8-12 ounces Cool Whip- I used 8 ounces

1-2 cups milk*

Quickly dip cookies in milk, shake off excess liquid, and layer in 9 inch pie plate, breaking cookies to fill any gaps. Once the first layer is complete, top with a thin layer of Cool Whip. Repeat twice more making last layer of Cool Whip a bit thicker. Garnish with chocolate syrup if desired. Place in freezer 2-3 hours before serving. Serves 6-8.

I drizzled warm carmel over my slices when I served it. YUMMY!

*You really won't use all that milk but need it to dunk the cookies all the way.

Thanks to the Big Red Kitchen for the photo!

Whisk ingredients together and marinate chicken for 30 minutes.

In a small bowl combine

Here's to Wendy's

Well Monday I worked and by the time I got home around 5 I figured I had better find something for dinner. Well in the freezer was one of those Fruschetta Pizza's that we'd had before and was pretty good as far as frozen pizza goes. It was portobello mushroom and spinach with white sauce. Jeff came home and did the mmm smells good. We sat down to eat and Molly was first to say "ewww take this off (the spinach) it doesn't taste good." Well as the mom I started to tell her it was good and to just eat it. I got to the "Molly, it is good.." and stopped. It wasn't good it was terrible and said "I don't blame you." Jeff agreed and it was into the car and off to the Wendy's!

Tastiest Dessert Ever

I can't take credit for this one. My sister-in-law invited us over for dessert the other night and she served us these most wonderful Apple Dumplings that I have been craving all week. I have bought the ingredients to make 3 batches. Just one suggestion , I would double the apple in the "dumpling."
