My Happy Post (Cookie Dough Pie Recipe)

My bloggy friend Allikaye's Mama, tagged me in a HAPPY post... I am to name things that make me happy here goes ....

My number ONE most HAPPY "thing" in my life is my HUBBY and our RELATIONSHIP
Of course our CHILDREN make me HAPPY.
Our SUPER big FAMILY {who all live within minutes from us} make me HAPPY.
Both sets of grandparents LOVE having the kids over, and to spend the night, they are constantly VERY generous with us and our CHILDREN.
Seeing the MIRACLES the LORD does in our LIVES daily, never ceases to AMAZE me.
We are BLESSED beyond belief.
I am SUPER HAPPY blogging has allowed me the opportunity to meet one of my BEST FRIENDS, and get so MANY great CRAFTING ideas, and AMAZING recipes like this one for...
You will need a pie pan {glass}
A package of Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies
You will dip each cookie in milk, just a quick dip and shake off excess milk. Arrange the cookies on the bottom of your pie pan, break a few to fill in.Now here is where I make the recipe slightly complicated, but trust me it's worth it. HOMEMADE whip cream. I used 1 pint heavy whipping cream.

and whipped in 3/4 cup sugar

But if you want to make it EASIER you can use Cool Whip, I just don't care for it.

After you have your layer of cookie, you spread a layer of whip cream, then another dipped cookie layer, and top with whip cream. I also drizzled some chocolate sauce to the top. Freeze for 2 to 3 hours before serving. I actually made this the night before.

The dipping of the cookies, makes them become dough like?? Go figure, all I know is, it was a HUGE hit and oh so YUMMY!

I spent 3 years cooking for 2 different fraternity houses and those boys loved this dessert.
But for them, I just used cookies dunked in milk and Cool Whip.
I would use 5 packs of cookies and Cool Whip and make it one those big clear bowls like salad bars use for the lettuce.

I bet it is to-die-for with real whipped cream and chocolate on top!

Hi Jen, I have been stopping by for awhile but never seem to have time to leave a note. Anyhow, your recipe sounds delicious and I think I will try it soon. All my kids love cookie dough so I am sure it will be a hit.
It is wonderful to see how God blesses us each day. I liked your HAPPY post.
