Cookie Pie

Yesterday was a big day...I went to the Paris Street Vintage Market, saw an old friend, had afternoon cocktails (which usually is the end of any motivation I may have had for the rest of the day) & then went over to a good friend's house for a cook-out.  I rushed to the grocery store & couldn't think of anything to make for the dessert I had offered to bring over.  I then realized why I love this recipe so much...I ALWAYS have all of the ingredients to make this at home.  Winner-winner.
