Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Pies

A few weeks ago during one of my couponing trips I picked up two 6-packs of Keebler Mini Pie Crusts. I really didn't know what I would make with them yet, but since I was able to get them for around $1, I knew I'd eventually be able to come up with something. The other night I was in dire need of something chocolatey, what a shock! I swear I can't go one day without having chocolate. If only somehow there could be a new fad diet in which the more chocolate you ate, the faster you lost weight.

As I was scrolling through a Paula Deen cookbook I have, I came across a recipe for a chocolate chip cookie pie. Her recipe had it made as one large pie, but I thought it might be cute to use my mini crusts and make these individual pies! Now that I made these and used the crusts, I'm thinking this would be such a cute dessert idea for a dinner party...mini apple pies with ice cream, mini cherry pies, mini pumpkin pies...so many possibilities! These chocolate chip cookie pies are pretty rich and decadent, so having them in the smaller size works out great!

Ingredients- Yields 4 Mini Pies
-1/4 cup flour
-1/4 cup packed brown sugar
-1/4 cup white sugar
-1 egg
-4 tablespoons butter, melted (This is a Paula Deen, you know there will be a lot of butter involved!!)
-1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
-4 Keebler Mini Pie Crusts
-1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional, I did not use in this recipe)
-1 teaspoon of powdered sugar (for garnish, optional)

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, and melted butter. Add the chocolate chips. Spoon mixture into the mini pie crusts.
3. Bake for 30 minutes.
