Today, I am so excited and honored to bring you this Million Dollar Cookie Pie from the cookbook Our Sweet Basil Kitchen by Cade and Carrian Cheney, creators of the recipe website Oh Sweet Basil! I am so blessed to call Carrian a dear friend of mine. I was first introduced to Carrian on Instagram through her brave, open battle with hyperemisis. I continue to be in awe as she inspires me with her light, strength, wisdom kindness and delicious recipes!
Just like Carrian’s website, Our Sweet Basil Kitchen Cookbook is packed with innovative yet family friendly recipes, just like their tag line describes: Fresh Twists on Family Favorites with Recipe Mashups and unique Flavor Combinations. Or in other words, no more boring dinners, sides or desserts! When I was trying to decide what to make from her book to share with you, the whole recipe index was a contender! From:
Breakfasts such as Sausage Breakfast Cake with Maple Butter Sauce and Apple Bacon Cheddar Waffles to
Soups such as Golden Loaded Baked Potato Soup and Creamy Butternut Squash Tortellini Soup to
Salads such as Mango Chicken Salad and Strawberry Cucumber Salad to
Sides such as Lemon Greek Potatoes and Mexican Fried Rice to
Main Dishes such as Braised Dijon Chicken and Potatoes to Asian Sticky Slow Cooker Ribs and
Desserts such as Dulce de Leche Banana Cream Pie and Chocolate-Strawberry Grilled Croissants.
OH MY YUM. Can you see my dilemma? I wish could taste all that dilemma right now. But the good news is that deliciousness is not going anywhere, its all in their Our Sweet Basil Kitchen Cookbook to stay and hopefully become part of your kitchen and favorite family recipes! It makes a fabulous Mother’s Day gift! You can purchase Our Sweet Basil Kitchen Cookbook on Amazon HERE.
In the end, I decided on Million Dollar Cookie. It was a million dollar winning choice. Or at least it taste like it.
This Pie has a few steps, but they are all very simple and the end result is layers of flaky pie crust, chocolaty Nutella, creamy Dulce de Leche and buttery chocolate chip cookie all drizzled with more caramel and chocolate. If you aren’t familiar with Dulce de Leche, it can be purchased in a can in the Latin section of the grocery store. It is essentially sweetened condensed milk that tastes somewhere between caramel and butterscotch and a whole lot of yum.
You can make this Million Dollar Cookie Pie the day before serving and it stays fresh, soft and I actually think it tastes 10X better, making it the ideal make ahead dessert for company or special occasions! Are you ready to make this Million Dollar Cooke Pie? Let’s get to it!
First, create the template for your Nutella/Dulce de Leche layer by placing the pie plate you will use on top of a piece of parchment paper and tracing an outline of the bottom of the plate. Set the parchment paper aside. Next, make your cookie layer as instructed.
Roll out your store-bought pastry dough and line your pie plate. You are also welcome to use your favorite pie crust recipe or even go wild and crazy and make an oreo crust. Cover and refrigerate.
Meanwhile, take the parchment paper on which you traced an outline and place it, traced-side-down on the counter. You will be able to see the outline through the paper, but the pencil markings will be touching the counter, not the topping. Scoop the Nutella into the center of the parchment circle and spread out evenly to fill the entire shape. Freeze 10 minutes, remove from freezer, then spread Dulce de Leche over the top, and return to the freezer for another 15-20 minutes OR until you can easily peel the disc from the parchment paper.
Remove frozen hazelnut and Dulce de leche disc from the freezer and carefully peel it off the parchment paper. Lay the disc in the pie crust.
Add the cookie dough and press into a uniform layer. Bake 25-35 minutes of until the top is golden brown and the center is almost set.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes then top with loads of ice cream, caramel and chocolate sauce.
And that’s what a million dollars tastes like. Thank you Our Sweet Basil Kitchen Cookbook. Thank you.
