This easy to make Gooey Chocolate Chip Pie is a giant cookie filled with chocolate chips and mini marshmallow baked up in a pie plate. Every wedge tastes like a thick, chewy chocolate chip cookie with an overload of chocolate!!

Gooey Chocolate Chip Pie

I think my family would be happy if I’d just make batch after batch of chocolate chip cookies. But in order to treat them AND have a fresh blog post to share, I have to get inventive. That’s where this gooey Chocolate Chip Pie comes in.

With both mini chocolate chips and semisweet chocolate chips and a surprise addition of mini marshmallows, this dessert was basically a humongous chocolate chip cookie! There were no complaints when this cookie pie came out of the oven.

Tips for Making This Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

If you can make the most basic cookie dough, you can make this cookie pie or cookie cake. Here are a few tips to make the process go seamlessly.

  • Get your butter out of the fridge an hour or two before you start mixing so it’s soft and easy to mix. Eggs, too, as they will incorporate more easily when not icy cold, but the butter is a higher priority.
  • If you forget, you can microwave a stick of butter for 5 seconds, then check to see if it’s soft enough . If not, flip it over and microwave another 5 seconds.
  • Prep your pan well. I found that greasing it with butter, then dusting with flour worked well.
  • I like to mix cookie dough by hand, but I did use a mixer for this batter. You can cream the butter and sugar on a high speed, but once you incorporate the dry ingredients, turn your mixer down to low. You do not want to over activate the gluten in the flour and you also do not want to incorporate any excess air into the dough. Over beating will make a more cake like pie, and you definitely want a chewy, dense consistency.
  • Also mix in the chocolate chips and marshmallows with a wooden spoon instead of the mixer. The marshmallows will become misshapen during the mixing process, so I like to reserve some to press into the surface before baking.
  • Usually, I spread the dough with an offset spatula, but it’s easier to press this dough into the pie plate with your hands, then smooth with the spatula if desired.
  • I made divots with my finger, then pressed a few more mini marshmallows across the surface for a pretty presentation. This step is totally optional.
  • The original recipe said to bake for 20 minutes but mine wasn’t nearly done at that point. It all depends on your oven. My gooey chocolate chip cookie pie took closer to 30 minutes. I’d rather under bake than over bake, but you do not want raw dough in the middle.Slice of Gooey Chocolate Chip Pie on a white ceramic plate

Why Is There Cornstarch in the Recipe?

Cornstarch added to cakes or cookies can soften the proteins in flour, therefore making more tender baked goods. If you ever are out of cake flour and do a Google search on what to use instead, you’ll find that adding cornstarch to all purpose flour makes homemade cake flour.

So here’s a bonus recipe for you. To make your own cake flour, measure out a cup of flour, then remove 2 tablespoons of the flour and replace with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Voila, you have one cup of a perfect cake flour substitution! So no excuses not to make this cookie cake!
