In the spirit of our Girl Scout Cookie season, we couldn’t get enough of the Somoa Cookies, so this weekend, I decided to give a try at a Somoa Cookie Pie! The results were amazing! Cookie crust topped with coconut, chocolate and caramel! Nothing’s better and now we can eat Somoa cookies anytime!
This recipe is a non-mixer recipe, super easy and the great thing is your Somoa Cookie Pie can be done from start to finish easily within 45 minutes! And with the week I’ve had, that’s exactly what I need, quick and easy dessert option for the family.
Enjoy the bake!
Somoa Cookie Pie
1.5 cups Coconut Shreds
1/2 cups salted butter
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 1/4 cup of all-purpose non bleached flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips reserved for later
1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk
6 oz of caramel candies
1/4 cup of heavy cream
Melt the butter and add you egg, vanilla and light brown sugar to a medium size bowl. Using a wooden spoon, stir completely until thoroughly combined.
Next, add the flour and salt mixture. I sifted the two together. Stir gently until completely moistened.
Using a spatula, pour the cookie mix into a 9″ pie plate greased.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
While baking, make your caramel syrup, melting the candies removed from their wrappers in a microwave. Melt completely and then carefully add your heavy cream a little at a time and stir until combined thoroughly and you have a nice caramel sauce.
Sprinkle the semi-sweet chips on the cookie bottom, then add your coconut shreds and push all the way to the edges. Pour evenly the sweetened condensed milk. Evenly pour the caramel sauce.
Place in oven and bake for about 22-25 minutes.
Pull out and place on a cooling rack. While it cools, melt the reserved chocolate chips in the microwave to create the well-known Somoa Cookie stripes on top of the pie. I had extra chips left over and then sprinkled those on top of the stripes. However, I think it was too much chocolate! The balance was a bit off, but if you’re a lover of chocolate, bring it on!
There you have a Somoa Cookie Pie!
Enjoy the bake!
