Easy As Pie!

This is actually a yummy cookie!

Sally took this recipe from a Family Fun magazine and made it for her dad last Saturday. 

You will need:

1. Wilson's round cookie pan  (Hobby Lobby for $7.99)

2.  Sugar cookie dough (Sally made her own.)

3.  Pecans, halved crosswise

4.  Whipped cream

5.  Orange-colored frosting

1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.  Grease bottom of cookie pan.
3.  Mix your sugar cookie dough and spread into pan.  (Sally used her fingers)
4.  Bake 15-20 minutes or when cookie starts to turn golden brown.  (Sally baked hers for 20 minutes).
5.  Place on cooling rack for 10 minutes.  Then remove and place on serving dish to cool completely.  (We placed the large serving dish over the cookie pan; flipped it together so the pan bottom was facing upright; then tapped the pan for the cookie to pop out.
 6.  Once cooled, frost the cookie and arrange the halved pecans around the edge of the cookie.  Cut into pie slices and serve with whip cream.

These are some pictures I took along the way...

Something fun for your kids to bake for a kiddie Thanksgiving dessert.


Molly update:

Thank you for your prayers!

Molly is doing very well.  She has not needed pain meds since late last night.  She is responding to her antibiotics, and the doctors  have been draining her infection.  She is in good spirits and said that she has had little sleep.  "Aunt Patty, every time I fell asleep last night, they'd wake me up to do something else." 

She should be home by Thanksgiving!  Amen!


  1. prayers answered. Praise the Lord. and what a wonderful cookie pie.

  2. I saw this in Family Fun and forgot about it. I think this may be the perfect (and easy!) Thanksgiving desert for us this year!

    Glad to hear that your goddaughter is doing better. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  3. So glad to hear that Molly is doing well!! Love the giant cookie, I saw that in the last issue of Fam Fun ~ hope you had fun eating it :)

  4. Glad Molly is doing better.
    I make a similar cookie for Christmas, but when it come out of the oven, put white chocolate chips on it, let them melt, then spread to cover the cookie. Then, chop up peppermint candies and sprinkle on top. Yummers!
    (I spread the cookie dough on a Pampered Chef round baking stone.)

  5. Patty, I was at my local Catholic bookstore yesterday and saw a paperback book, Saints of Asia, by Vincent J. O'Malley, C.M. Thought of you and looked up Stan's saint is it Andrew Luc? I believe he is in there. Incase you haven't heard about this book. The book has other saints from Korea. The book is available at amazon. Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanks for stopping by!
