Can’t decide between cookies, pie or ice cream for dessert? It’s time for a mashup! Nutella Dulce de Leche Chocolate Chip Cookie pie– say that 10 times fast.
My two favorite desserts in an ultimate dessert mashup! Nutella Dulce De Leche Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie is a flaky, buttery pie crust, a thick layer of nutella and dulce de leche that is to die for and then to top it all off, gooey chocolate chip cookie dough and a sprinkling of sea salt.
What can I say about this recipe that wont sound annoying and over the top? I mean, it’s seriously so delicious I could sit here and gab about it forever but I can feel the eyes rolling already.
So I’ll give you a quick run down and then, and don’t you dare judge me, I’m going to go grab a sliver for myself, warm it up in the microwave, add a dollop of ice cream and watch an episode of The Chew before the kids get home. That’s right, I’m taking a lazy mom break and I know you’re a little jealous.
It all starts with my Grandma’s Pie Crust. Years ago my sister posted a yummy pie crust recipe, but it’s my mom’s that her mom gave her that’s my favorite. It’s easy and flaky and that’s perfection.
Then we have a little nutella and dulce de leche. If you haven’t bought dulce de leche it’s basically sweetened condensed milk boiled into caramel. Enough said.
Finally there’s the gooey, chewy, oh my gosh I am so hungry, chocolate chip cookie dough layer. We felt like there was so much sweet that to balance it all we added some flaked sea salt and oh my sweet deliciousness. It’s wonderful. Serve it a la mode or just as is. It’s heaven. I love it. And you, I love you. (I think I’m a tad light hearted about my afternoon mom break)
Is Dulce de Leche The Same Thing As Caramel?
No, although they have a similar flavor, they are not the same thing.
Dulce de Leche is made from condensed milk that is slowly heated to a caramel-like substance.
Caramel is made from sugar and water.
Can You Substitute Caramel For Dulce de Leche?
Yes, you can substitute caramel for Dulce de Leche if you do not have Dulce de Leche.
They have similar flavors and texture.
