This Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie is one of the best things ever! Probably because it’s like having a chocolate chip cookie in a pie crust.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie - a giant cookie in a crust! The ultimate dessert recipe! |

Hey there! I’m Jen from Jen’s Favorite Cookies, and I’m thrilled to be chatting with all the amazing Cupcakes and Kale Chips fans today! There are a few things you should know about me. I’m a wife, and mom of three teens. I’m a dog lover and cat hater. I have never used the phrase “This is too chocolatey.” And I love cookies. I’ve even dedicated my blog to simple recipes for cookies, desserts, and snacks. But mostly cookies.

My family is always complaining that I never make the same thing twice. I make 2-3 new desserts every week, so it’s always something different and fresh. Each family member has their own idea of what they want me to make again.

My middle child has been begging for homemade banana pudding layered with chocolate sheet cake and whipped cream. He mentions it about once a week.

My husband wants me to re-create the Cherries Jubilee cookies I made for him a while back.

But me, if I was to remake my favorite dessert, what would I make? Actually, I have a list about 20 items long. Welcome to my world. But this pie definitely makes the list. It’s so awesome, with chocolate chips and pecans and pie crust!

If you are into making your own pie crust, I say go for it. I actually use this crust recipe from Emeril Lagasse to make mine. It’s totally flaky and delicious.

While I can make a really delicious pie crust, what I cannot do is make a beautiful one. I think there’s something wrong with me. I cannot make a pie crust look nice to save my life. It always looks like my 7-year-old nephew made it. Actually, he would probably do a better job than me.

Therefore, I use a frozen crust. I call for a frozen crust in the recipe, but don’t let that stop you from making a fresh homemade crust. Then fill that baby with this pecan and chocolate chip goodness and eat it warm.

Trust me!

    I doubled the recipe. When it came to the nuts, however, I used 1c pecans for one pie; and 1c walnuts for the other. I followed the recipe but it looked it was not fully cooked through. Aah! Also, is there a need to refrigerate afterwards? Thanks

    This pie is so good. Got many compliments. I made it exactly as directed. I am making it again today! Not like a cookie texture, but more like a gooey, buttery cookie…soooo good! Thanks for the recipe.

    I have made this pie many, many times and it always turns out great. Took it to lots of covered dish dinners to have people tell me I should sell it. The one thing I changed for family consumption was using milk chocolate chips due to less acidity, worked fine.

      I’m so glad that you love the recipe, Debi! Isn’t it wonderful when we can find recipes that we love to eat as much as we love to create? 🙂

    I used this recipe this past weekend for a Kentucky Derby get-together, and it turned out great! I made only one minor change to the recipe, however. Instead of adding a full cup of granulated sugar, I mixed together a half a cup of granulated sugar and half a cup of light brown sugar to give it a bit more of a chocolate chip cookie taste. I used a traditional 9″ frozen pie crust–Walmart’s store brand–and it worked perfectly. The deep dish would have been too deep. I simply allowed the crust to thaw at room temperature for 15 minutes, pierced the bottom of the crust throughout with a fork, poured in the filling, and baked it as the recipe shows. I didn’t have any run-over or mess. Thanks for sharing! This recipe is still very helpful even three years after you first posted it.

      Bobby, your adaptions to the chocolate chip cookie pie sound absolutely delicious! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the recipe.

        Maybe it’s the butter you are using. Try something else. It’s a GREAT pie and you will love it. Don’t give up 🙂

    I got this exact recipe for Derby Pie when I lived in Louisville for graduate school over 40 years ago. It has been my family’s favorite all of these years. I thaw the deep dish crust and poke the holes with a fork then put it in the pre-heated oven for about 5-7 minutes while I am mixing it up. It is so easy to mix up I always make 2 and put one in the freezer. It freezes great. And of course it is always better served warm with vanilla ice cream. You can microwave it to warm it up if needed. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as my family has. This is one recipe that will be passed on to the future generations in our family.

    As a note and I am not a hater… I love this pie. but the Official Kentucky Derby organization has Copyright on the title of this pie. It cannot be label Kentucky Derby pie… you can call it raceway pie, or any sort of derivative… but not that. Just FYI…

  7. Katie

    Any feedback on whether to thaw the frozen pie crust before filling? I want to make this for the derby this weekend! Thank you!

  8. Kaitlyn Maloney

    Hi! I’m making this today. The only way I have ever had this pie was with bourbon in the recipe. Do you have a suggestion for that?

  9. Mary

    I’m not much of a cook, but this recipe sounds to good to miss. Since the recipe calls for a frozen crust, do you fill and bake it frozen, or do you thaw the crust first?

    1. Melissa

      Ah! I didn’t even check. I hope the pie turns out. I just threw it in the oven straight from the freezer. Making it for Thanksgiving tomorrow!

  10. Loren

    Getting ready to make this! Just wanted to make sure on the pie crust…do I need to pop it in the oven first or just bake with the ingredients? Thanks

  11. This is such a throwback to childhood! My pie is in the oven right now! FYI, I think it needs a deep dish crust!! It might be good to specify since I got a regular frozen one and had to throw a pan in the oven underneath because it’s dripping the filling everywhere…

    I’m sure it’ll still be delicious though…

      I just made this and I am having the same issue its dripping all out of the pan, makes me so upset, I got a frozen pie shell follwed the diredtions to a T… I hope it taste good and that I can make it look presentable, will think twice before making this pie again…?

      1. Hi Tammy. I’m so sorry this recipe didn’t work out for you. A contributor created this recipe for my site, so I don’t have personal experience with it. But perhaps the pie crust you purchased did not have the same capacity. Maybe you’d need a deep dish crust or split it between two crusts.

    Instead of vanilla I used coconut extract and for the pecans I used coconut because I don’t care for pecans and it was so delicious! My kids loved it!

    1. Margaret

      That sounds Amazing. . .I’m not to keen on Nuts either…Thanks for the idea…How much Coconut did you use ?

    1. Melissa

      I’ve got mine in the oven right now and a regular pie crust is overflowing. I’ve got a drip pan beneath it, but next time I will be using a deep dish!

  13. My husband asked me today to make him a chocolate chip cookie pie – and I knew he meant Kentucky Derby Pie – so thanks to you and Jen both for having this recipe! Pinned and making tomorrow!!

      “Cat Hater”. Not sure that is really necessary to post. I was going to make this pie and looked elsewhere after reading the cat comment in her description of herself….I am with you Auntiepatch!!!
