It’s a gooey in the center, crusted on top cookie in a flaky pie crust. What more could anyone want? Grab a glass of milk and get baking.

It’s a pie, it’s a cookie, it’s crunchy and chewy. It’s perfect for when you don’t know what you want for dessert. This pie is magic, people! Speaking of PIE, Fall is pie season. In the same way summer beckons us with ice cream and frozen treats, smoky barbeques and fresh berries, fall greets us with pies and spices and shades of umber, warm beverages and hearty soups. Winter comes, gleaming with sparking sugar crusted cookies, with brisk mints and decadent cocoa, fluffy marshmallows and rich, meaty feasts.
As most pies go, this has a crust. You don’t have to blind bake this crust, either. It’s as simple as roll, mix, pour and bake. Okay, there is a slight bit of measuring involved. But, hey you can do that.

- ½ cup flour
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
