Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Pookie

Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Pookie

You know what food bloggers hate the most? Not recipe epic fails, though that is certainly near the top of my list. Not a lack of inspiration. Not the sinking realization that even though you made an amazing cake, someone needs it as a gift so you can’t take photos of individual slices.

Nope. The rain.

Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Pookie

Yep, that’s right. Rain. It rained day after day last week, and so even though this deep dish pookie is amazing, I got awful pics of it. I’m terribly sorry. Forgive me, and know that it tasted wonderful and that I am not worthy.

Also, know that this is super easy. Like, crazy easy. One bowl, bakes up fast. I made it in a 9-inch round cake pan to make it that pie-cookie hybrid, and how happy life was!

In a recipe like this, the chocolate chips sink to the bottom, right by the Oreo cookie crust. It’s like this magical burst of chocolate intensity just as your palate is adjusting to the pookie flavor. And as for the texture, it’s a mix of pie and cookie, of course. Gooey and melty and just what you need!

Unlike the rain, which nobody needs. So ignore that, and pookie it up! I’ll see you tomorrow when the sun is shining. Let’s hope, anyway.


Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Pookie


1 package Oreos, finely crushed
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 9-inch round pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the Oreo crumbs, melted butter and sugar until crumbs are moistened. Press into the cake pan firmly, working the crumbs up the sides.
  3. Bake the crust for 15 minutes.
  4. While the crust is baking, make the filling. Mix all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips into the cooled butter, stirring until thoroughly combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Pour the batter into the baked cookie crust. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the pookie is golden brown and set with no jiggling at all.
  6. Cool and cut into wedges.



I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner. This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker. Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.

    Cloudy days and rain definitely make for poor food photography! But this deep dish pookie looks incredible, Mir! I wish it was sitting in front of me right now. I am such a sucker for skillet cookies, and I especially love the oreo crust! Delish!

      Thanks, Gayle! Today was sunny and clear and so my pics came out SO much better. Now I feel a whole lot more okay. Rain is one of those necessary evils, but ugh!

    This deep dish pookie looks extremely delicious Mir! I just need a slice right now. So sweet and gooey! I totally hear you about rain! I hate it and it did rain for 3 days here last week, so I couldn’t take any pictures! The pookie looks great, you still managed to shot it 🙂

      I guess I’d rather post the less than ideal shots rather than miss a post. But it did hurt a little, Mira!

      That is way too kind, Michele, given my photo fiasco. But you’re a sweetie!

    I can so relate! I was working on a recipe for bark this weekend for bark and it was so cloudy. Most of my pictures came out dark, so I’m just going to pretend I was going for the dark and artsy look:) I can’t even imagine what the upcoming snowy days are going to do to the light coming into my house! Your pookie does look delicious, especially with all that gooeyness leaking out:)

      Thanks, Heather! I don’t want to think about snow. I hate snow. I think that makes me a grumpy grown-up! But gooeyness definitely helps my mood brighten up a bit!
