Fall is the perfect time to try out some new recipe using favorite flavors, like this Pecan Cookie Pie.
This pie is like a big chewy cookie, filled with M&M’s® Pecan Pie and pecans for a delicious seasonal dessert. To make the pie nice and moist I used Mott’s® Apple Sauce instead of butter in the recipe, which makes for a soft and sweet cookie pie with tasty M&M’s® sprinkled throughout.Find more recipe ideas and enter the MARS Bake in the Fun Sweepstakes at the end of the post!
The Pecan Cookie Pie is quick and easy to make too. First I got some of the new M&M’s® Pecan Pie flavor candy at Walmart, and then chopped up some pecans to add to the flavor.
I combined Mott’s® Apple Sauce with sugar, an egg and flour, and mixed it all together. Then I added in the chopped pecans and some of the M&M’s® and mixed it all up.
I poured the batter into a pie pan. Then to make it extra tasty and pretty I stuck a bunch more M&M’s® on top of the batter, and baked it for half an hour.
After it cooled I frosted the edges with Pillsbury Creamy Supreme® Cream Cheese Icing for a delicious finish to the Pecan Cookie Pie.
