Need a cookie pie, cookie cake, or a giant skillet cookie in your life?
But need it dairy-free and egg-free for your food allergy family?
TOP TIP FOR COOKIE PIE
Try not to overbake your cookie pie or cake. First the edges brown, the middle loses it’s wet gloss, then keep a close eye on it from there. Pull it out of the oven before the center fully firms up. It will set more after it comes out.
As the story goes, my hubby used to agree to shop at the mall with his mom as a kid…
because he knew he’d get a fancy cookie as a treat.
Ha ha, smart kid. Whatever it takes, grandma. Genius bribe!
But now as a food allergy dad, hubby knows we can’t use that to bribe our own kids to shop with us.
However, that sure doesn’t mean we’re gonna miss out on those delicious cookie treats!
No way. It didn’t take me long to figure out how to reinvent this famous cookie fun without milk and egg.
Perfect for our family with food allergies.
And guests can’t even tell it’s allergy-friendly.
I think it’s even easier than making chocolate chip cookies, just press all the dough into a pan and bake.
If you don’t use icing, it’s even easier. Perhaps instead, serve it hot with dairy-free ice cream on top. Heavenly!
But if you do decide to decorate with icing, we know you won’t regret it. Just make sure it’s cooled first.
As a teenager, my kiddo now prefers this as his favorite birthday cake.
He even asks for this to be his allergy-friendly pie on Thanksgiving sometimes.
Well played, kiddo.
The cousins devour it right alongside you…
leaving the fruit pies in the dust.
Sometimes I make this recipe in a pie dish.
Other times I double the recipe and press it into a cake pan.
And a cast iron skillet cookie (affiliate) is super fun, as well.
Mix it up, have some fun!

HOW TO DECORATE COOKIE PIES
Simply fill a freezer bag with your favorite allergy-free frosting.
Snip a corner of the bag.
Pipe icing onto your cooled giant cookie.
