All About Chocolate

Everything you want to know about chocolate

When I'm not sure what dessert to bring to a picnic, this is what I make. Unlike juicy summer fruit pies, you can eat this simple jam pie without a plate and fork—a nice bonus for outdoor meals.

Start by making chocolate chip cookie dough that fits your dietary needs. I've made this pie "just" gluten-free; I've also made it vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free. (Just be sure the chocolate chips you select don't contain any unwanted ingredients or allergens.) It's a wonderfully special-diet-friendly recipe.

For the filling, you can simply spread the cookie dough with jam and bake. Or you can dress the pie up a little and add some coconut, toasted chopped nuts, or dried fruit. One time I made the recipe with an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie base, topped it with blueberry jam, toasted coconut, and chopped white chocolate chips. Minutes after hitting the table, the pie disappeared. And nothing says baking success quite like an empty pie plate.
