It’s the most wonderful time of the year y’all. Delicious sweets galore, and a valid reason to consume them! The holidays are marvelous like that. We get bombarded with sweets, from everywhere; whether it’s in the office (holiday parties), meeting up with friends for a potluck, or just visiting your family over the weekend. Cookies everywhere! Even if it isn’t Christmas day yet, people are still loaded up with cookies, ready to treat their guests, family, and friends.
If you’re like me, eventually you just get “cookied” out. I don’t like to waste things though. I’m definitely not throwing cookies away and I don’t want to give them away either (my cookies!). So what do you do with this abundance of yum? What do you do with Santa’s chocolate chip cookies that the kids left out if you don’t eat them but they’ve been sitting out all night? You turn those cookies into pie crust.
I’m going to show you how to repurpose these cookies into yet another delightful dessert for those coworkers, friends and family. Yes, this is essentially re-gifting if you got those cookies from them. Yes, I It’s usually looked down upon, but come on…how could you hate on a Chocolate chip cookie pie crust. Impossible!
The raspberry really does compliment the flavor of the cookie crust and the butter almonds in the ice cream. I like making these into personal pies because then you don’t have to worry about serving each person a slice of pie as it melts on the kitchen counter. Your family and friends will appreciate the extra effort. They will Voilà; There’s some of that Christmas spirit we hear about, in its simplest form. Happy Holidays everyone!
