Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Pie

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Pie! How's that for alliteration?

I hate pie crust. I'm that girl that scoops out all the warm, gooey goodness in the middle of the pie and then scrapes the crust onto my mother's plate {or who ever happens to be sitting close}. So when I ran across this recipe on Pinterest, I thought that instead of making it in a cake pan, I could simply adapt this recipe to be a pie with chocolate chip cookie crust!

Here's what you'll need:
1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 roll refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough

Slice the cookie dough roll into 1/4 in. thick slices and place in a greased, standard pie pan. Press together so that there are no holes between the cookie dough slices. In a bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla. Spoon the cream cheese mixture onto the cookie dough.
Spread the mixture evenly on the cookie dough.
Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool, refrigerate, and serve chilled.
I had a couple extra slices of cookie dough so I simply added them onto of the cream cheese mixture. The pie turned out to not be as pretty as it would've been, but really when has a little extra cookie dough hurt anyone? ;)
Nothing beats homemade cheesecake filling! And the cookie dough crust?? AMAZING!

Enjoy!
