Happy PI DAY! Because March 14th matches the first 3 digits of PI (3.14), it has become a holiday for foodies and nerds alike.
Gluten Free Cookie Dough Pie
This year I am celebrating with a gluten free cookie dough pie! Edible cookie dough has been a hot trend in the foodie world, with shops in big cities like New York serving it by the scoop like ice cream. I feel that I am an original edible cookie dough fan, I was into it before it was hot. (If you ever want to just eat cookie dough, give my gluten free edible cookie dough recipe a try.)
Not only is this pie filled with edible cookie dough, it is also dairy free and vegan friendly! (Of course, you can easily make it dairy-full. My daughter is sensitive to dairy so I made this cookie dough pie dairy free so that she could eat it too.)
The filling is oh-so-creamy and tastes just like cookie dough! The graham-style crust stays crisp, and the chocolate on top just brings this pie to the next level.
As a teen, I was never was a big math geek but one thing I did get was Pi. Archimedes was a pretty cool guy. Maybe it was because he ran through the streets screaming "Eureka" in his birthday suit, but I've always remembered him.
Also, PI sounds like PIE and that is something I can definitely get behind.
I like to celebrate each year with some kind of pie. One year I shared my family's favorite gluten-free peanut butter pie, and another year I made a gluten free dairy free coconut cream pie. This year's pie take the cake! (LOL, I can be punny sometimes.)
If you are a chocolate fan, you'll probably love my friend Michelle's Gluten Free Fudge Pie Recipe. I think it will be on my baking list for PI day 2019!
Schar's Honeygrams make a fabulous crust for this gluten free cookie dough pie. All I did was melt some vegan butter in my pie plate, then mix in a crushed package of Honeygrams. The texture was perfect!
Honeygrams are also great for snacking on with a glass of your favorite milk, or my childhood favorite- two Honeygrams with leftover frosting spread between them.
(If you want to make S'mores, grab the Chocolate Honeygrams. Each cracker already has chocolate on the bottom, making them perfect for camping.)
I filled my crust with gluten-free edible cookie dough folded with some whipped topping to make it silky smooth. One tip I recently learned is to bake your flour before making edible cookie dough. This helps it to lose any starchy taste and the results are well worth the extra 15 minutes.
Aside from cooking the flour (which is optional) this gluten free cookie dough pie is no bake!
If you want some more cookie dough filled treats in your life, try my gluten free cookie dough brownie truffles, gluten free cookie dough brownies, gluten free cookie dough brownie ice cream, or gluten free cookie dough ice cream sandwiches.
