When I saw this recipe on Big Red Kitchen I thought to myself, no way is that any good, it's way too easy. But on Father's Day I decided to give it a shot and oh my goodness- it is yummy and simple and sinfully good!
You need only 4 simple ingredients:
-a 15.25 ounce package chocolate chip cookies (I used Kroger brand Chips Ahoy type cookies)
-either an 8 ounce or a 12 ounce container of Cool Whip (again, I used the Kroger brand)
-2 cups milk (I used skim b/c it's what I normally buy)
Pour two cups of milk into a bowl. Dunk cookies in the milk, shake off excess milk, and layer in a 9 inch pie plate- breaking cookies to fill any gaps. It is important to leave the cookies in the milk for a bit so they get a little mushy- but not so long that they completely fall apart. You definitely want to make sure to shake off the extra milk so that you don't end up with a big puddle of milk in your pie. Once the first layer is done, cover with a light layer of Cool Whip. Repeat layers twice- making the last layer of Cool Whip thicker to cover all cookies completely. Decorate the top of the pie with chocolate syrup. Place in freezer for 2-3 hours before serving. Set pie on counter to thaw a bit before serving.
This was so simple and yet so yummy- I will absolutely be trying it again soon- with different types of cookies. I think next I'll have to try oatmeal cookies for my sweet daughter who loves them!
