Take-out Tuesday, Sugar Cookie Birthday Pie

NG, my son-in-law, is the nicest guy you will ever meet

He also has a major sweet tooth

So for his birthday last week, I made him a giant sugar cookie pie

And topped it with chopped peanut butter cups

I was trying to make up for the fact that for Christmas we gave CC a storage bench and Charlie Brown a play table, but they both had to be put together, and the bench was missing instructions which made it extra fun…

Then a Home Depot gift card for his birthday, which I’m sure will be used for household projects…DD had him painting the hallway the day after Christmas!

This guy deserved a cookie!

This recipe is adapted from Betty Crocker, she said to mix it with a spoon,

I’m sorry Betty, that’s way too much work so I opted for a hand mixer, but next time it will go straight into the food processor or stand mixer

Mix sprinkles into the dough and pat in into a big cookie in a springform pan or a pie plate

I used a springform pan for ease of removal

  1. Wow! That’s a super original birthday gift! Looks good too

    He does deserve a cookie or two Jenna! I told my hubby when he retires he needs to go into the “some assembly required” business since he’s everyone’s Mr. Fix It 🙂

    P. S. Sending my condolences your way this morning after that nail biting game last night.

  3. Jodi says:

    That’s some MAJOR SWEET stuff! 🙂 But he sure deserved it! LOL!

    That looks amazing!! What a great idea to make it at home. 🙂

  5. That’s a great idea! And it look delish, too! (Nice mom, paybacks for the construction!)

  6. Jenna, he definitely deserved a giant cookie and it looks delicious. I also have a sweet tooth and got a bit carried away over the holidays! It was a tough game and I do congratulate Clemson and Dabo! RTR

    What a nice compliment for your son-in-law. I bet he thinks he got a pretty good deal, too! I’m betting the kids didn’t mind indulging in his sweet either.

  10. Your cookie looks great and sure SIL enjoyed it.
    I’m disappointed about the game 😢 also.
