Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Usually when these ingredients are present it means some tasty chocolate chip cookies are on the way.  Well, not this time my friends.  These ingredients are instead coming together, uniting their lovely flavors to become a Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie.
I first discovered the greatest pie there ever was on Pinterest which led me to to Bakerella's blog. This pie and I have been BFFs ever since.  So when my original plan for a Thanksgiving Pie was given the red light by my family I knew my BFF would come to the rescue.  I have lots of great memories with my BFF and I'm so thankful my family and I were able to spend some time with her during the Thanksgiving Holiday.

One of the last moments I got to spend with my BFF, but I'm quite thankful for the time we had together.
