Bites {Deep-Dish Cookie Pies}

Back in February, we took my mom out to eat for her birthday at Tavern in Valley Park. After an amazing dinner (this restaurant is easily our favorite one around these days), we all split a ridiculously sinful dessert: a soft-baked cookie cake with ice cream on top, as well as peanut butter mousse and mini M&Ms. I've been dying to recreate it since then, and pinned the recipe for these deep-dish cookie pies, via Blue-Eyed Bakers, several months ago. This week we finally had a chance to try it, and it was SOOO good. You slightly underbake them, leaving the middle so ooey and gooey I couldn't get my spoon in there fast enough! Now I just need a recipe for peanut butter mousse, and my dream dessert will be mine (mua-ha-ha)!

  1. These look delicious. I'm a sucker for cookie desserts, especially ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies.


  2. ZOMG, those look amazing! A review of the restaurant says that they have pre-printed recipe cards that they give out for some of their dishes: http://www.tavernstl.com/PDF/roy2011.pdf

    Could you stand to go back and see if they have one for that? I mean, it would be in the name of science . . . and the internet and stuff.

    1. Really? I had no idea they did that! Well, I guess...if I HAVE to...in the name of research. :)
