Even though I am (ahem) dieting today, I couldn't resist chiming in on Jen's Tasty Tuesday treats for tossing out temptation.......don't you love a little bit of alliteration???? :) Oh, she's over at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam.....
I thought today I was going to blog about my family room, and a sofa table I put to use, because today the Nester is talking about sofa tables and lamps.....BUT I am hampered by the fact that my camera cable is nowhere to be found. The Camera cable has collapsed my capers. ok, enough with the continuous consonants.....
The recipe I thought I'd share is my GO-TO recipe when I need to make a dessert in a flash....or two. It is even a no-bake recipe for those summer days when you dare NOT turn the oven on and challenge even the best of the best a/c units. So I give you No Bake Chocolate chip Cookie pie! It is from a Southern Living Cookbook, Easy Weeknight Favorites....and it is simple, even the kids can make it, if you trust them!
Prep time:7 minutes or so...
Chill: 8 hours
1 (15oz. or 18 oz.) pkg of chocolate chip cookies (I use Chips Ahoy)
1 c. milk
1 (9oz) commercial graham cracker crust (extra serving size or deep dish)
1 (8oz) container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
Dip 8 cookies in milk, and place in a single layer in graham cracker crust. Top with one third of the whipped topping. Dip 8 more cookies in milk, and place on top; spread with one-third of whipped topping. Repeat with 8 more cookies, milk and remaining whipped topping. Crumble 2 or 3 cookies and sprinkle over surface of pie. cover and chill for 8 hours before serving. Serves 8.
For cookies, we used Nabisco Chunky chips Ahoy. You'll need 26 cookies for this recipe (you may have a couple leftover cookies from the package. What will YOU do with them?)
