15 #SundaySupper - Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

It's Sunday again, and time for another #SundaySupper! This weekend we decided to take all of our mutual love for movies and food and marry the two together. All of our recipes this week are inspired by the movies. There has been a huge volume of creativity over the past week from all of the participants, and it's been fun to see all the recipes people have come up with. 

I was inspired this week by Life of Pi...and a well know pair Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Life of Pi is a beautiful film released last year, with amazing storytelling and remarkable visuals. How do Fey and Poehler play into this? During their opening monologue they made a pun regarding Life of Pi and eating pie...the video of their monologue is down below:

I made a gluten free cookie crust, and filled it with a chocolate custard cream. Super tasty, and sooo tasty! 

Be sure to check out everyone's movie inspired recipes below!

Join the #SundaySupper conversation on twitter on Sunday, April 14th to talk all about movies that have inspired us to head into the kitchen - and the food that comes from that inspiration (7pm EST)!  We’ll tweet throughout the day and share recipes from all over the world.   Follow the#SundaySupper hashtag, and include it in your tweets to join in the chat.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, whip the butter and sugars together until well blended. Add the egg and vanilla and whip until incorporated. Stir in the flour, gum, and soda until well combined. Transfer 3/4 of the dough to a pie tin, and form into the shape of a pie crust (You can use the remainder of the dough for cookies). Take a piece of aluminum foil and cover the crust.

    Hahahaa I loved Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes! This pie looks to die fooor!

  2. Yum!!! I love that this is a different kind of gluten free pie - sometimes I feel like they're all versions of the same thing!

  3. Fey and Poehler KILLED IT - I love them! And this pie sounds delicious...I'll have a warm slice with ice cream, please.

  4. Fey and Poehler are hilarious together! And I'll take a slice of your pie any time, any day.

  5. Love your Pi and pie connection! As a baker, I wish I had been as creative! And who can resist a chocolate chip cookie pie? No one in my house!

  6. What a great GF recipe! Thanks for sharing :)

  7. Agreed! I was afraid about whether the crust would turn out alright, especially when it inflated while in the oven. Thankfully it reduced to normal cookie thickness after it cooled!

  8. Agreed! They were so great together

  9. Just watched that movie three times when we were on vacation!! Loved it and I love how that inspired you to make this pie!! Great clip with Amy and Tina!!! I would like 6 weeks of Pie!!!

  10. I have not seen this movie yet but I want to eat this pie!

  11. Yummy...your pie sounds delicious. Wish I had a Now!

  12. Great idea for the crust! Must try that

  13. I've never tried a GF pie crust, but you've inspired me. Can't wait to see Life of Pi - missed it when it was in the theater.

  14. I love a classic chocolate pie - and a cookie crust?! Awesome!

  15. Love your inspiration for the pi(e). One of the best intros to these silly awards show, and of course, I had to watch it again! Thanks for posting.
