Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie Recipe

This is another recipe that I saw on Pinterest and pinned for the future.  Husband was off work one day last week and must have been looking up recipes on the internet because when I went to use the ipad later that night and opened up the internet browser, I was greeted with a recipe.  I looked at it, then switched to pinterest and my board of dessert recipes I want to try and had him browse it. He decided on this recipe.

After making it, I'm torn.  It was super easy to make.  I mean, you can't really get any easier than this.  I think it does taste like a chocolate chip cookie.  I think I just don't see the point in making this over a chocolate chip cookie. Maybe because it's easier?  I don't know.   It is very tasty. I could see making this and taking it somewhere if I wanted to bring an easy dessert but wanted it to be a bit fancier than regular chocolate chip cookies.    As for just making it for us for at home, I probably won't do it again.

The recipe was posted on Bakerella's blog.  (It's also where I stole the photo).
