Before we dig into this beautiful funfetti chocolate chip cookie pie, I need to do a bit of shameless self promotion. My book, the one I spent months developing, one of the few things that gave me purpose after the fire, the one that has a big chunk of my heart and soul in it, is available for pre-order!
Part of me is excited and part of me is horrified. I’m so scared that people won’t love it. I’m awake at night sweating over every little detail. What if I forgot an ingredient? What if a baking time isn’t right? What if the copy editor forget to check page 245? What if the amazing chocolate chip cookie bars come out dry instead of moist for Barbara Adams in Madison, Wisconsin and she tells all of her friends what a horrible book it is? These are legitimate fears I face, friends. Even though I’m scared, I’m equally as excited. A book, A REAL BOOK, will be in the shelves of stores and online with my name on it. That feels…just…surreal.
Let’s move onto something a little less scary, a funfetti cookie pie! On a scale of things that give you anxiety, this is probably a negative 5,500,345. I mean really, how can anything with the words funfetti and cookie cause you anything but glee?
Now, as you can probably tell by the pretzels, sprinkles, frosting and, well, cookie base, this recipe isn’t healthy or low-fat. At all. But it’s Monday, Valentine’s Day is in 4 days, so why not live a little aye? It’s a scientific fact, when Mondays include sprinkles, pretzels and cookies, it’s going to be an incredible one.
And if it’s not, at least you have a cookie pie to drown your sorrows in.
I seriously can’t believe Valentine’s Day is 4 days away. I swear it was just New Years Eve. I swear I just woke up with a bunch of resolutions I had full intentions of following. Before you know it, St. Patrick’s Day will be here and then it’s practically Memorial Day. If I wake up tomorrow and it’s the 4th of July, I give up.
Mainly just because I’m nowhere near bikini body ready. Like, at all.
