I can’t let pie day slide by without a good celebration! And parties with food always win out over mathematics, so let’s taking the sweet route today, shall we?
Like the rest of America, I’m a complete sucker for Girl Scout cookies. They’re so sneaky, just waiting outside the grocery store and coffee shop when I’m at my hangriest. I always make a pact that this will be the year that I won’t give in… maybe better luck next year.
I know Thin Mints are the ultimate favorite but I have a soft spot for Samoas. I don’t know why, coconut and I have never been friends, but that chocolate and caramel and shortbread (okay and yes, even the toasted coconut) – I just can’t resist.
Cookie pie needs very little hands-on time but has an impossibly long cooling period… you’ve been warned, but zero judgment if you just can’t wait and decide crumbly and gooey is the way to go.
This pie is rich rich rich! Just a little sliver is plenty thanks to so many sweet layers.
