Deep Dish Gooey Cookie Pie

After seeing this simple recipe at Back for Seconds - I just couldn't quit thinking about it.  I had a choco chip cookie mix in the cupboard and when I had a hankerin' for some sweets, I whipped it up quickly and was enjoying it warm.  MMMMM!

It's so 'EASY PEASY' - only THREE ingredients - and it has many options...use sugar cookie or peanut butter mix, nutella instead of peanut butter, nuts, m & m's (or chopped candy of choice)... whatever 'turns your crank'.

Simple and delicious!  It's a winner as far as I'm concerned.  I'm not even fond of marshmallows, but I could NOT leave this alone.

Very attractive cookie pie too - this would make a great dish to prepare for a bake sale...

or if you're like me...whenever you're craving something sweet and want it NOW! 

Pour yourself a tall glass of cold milk and enjoy a big chunk of warm cookie pie.

You'll be sure to love me forever!

1 batch of chocolate chip cookie dough
(I used a dry mix but you could purchase ready-made)

1/2 - 3/4 cup mini marshmallows

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350*

Press half of the dough into a greased 12" cast iron skillet (I used a 9" round cake pan.) Top with dollops of peanut butter evenly all over the dough. Sprinkle with marshmallows. Top with remaining cookie dough, making sure to spread it evenly.

Bake for 25 minutes or until edges brown and cookie is set. Tastes great at room temperature but is super yummy warmed up with ice cream on top...and maybe a drizzle of hot fudge if you want to go 'whole hog'.

Or taste it as soon as it cools from the oven.

(I'm not sayin' if I did or didn't do that...
but just be careful not to burn your mouth =)
