  • Author: Kate Morgan Jackson

This fun recipe for Triple Threat Cake combines cookie dough, pie crust, cake and frosting for the ultimate dessert deliciousness.


  • One unbaked piecrust (packaged is fine!)
  • One batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough (I used the recipe on the back of the Nestle Chocolate Chips bag)
  • One batch of your favorite prepared cake mix
  • One batch of your favorite prepared frosting (yes, the kind in the can!)
  • Sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray deep dish pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. Lay unbaked pie crust in pie plate.
  3. Press enough cookie dough into bottom of pie crust to fully cover bottom but not sides. It should be about 1/2 to 3/4 inch deep. You will have leftover cookie dough (hurray!)
  4. Prepare cake mix according to box directions and pour over cookie dough until pie plate is almost full. You will have leftover cake mix (make cupcakes!)
  5. Bake for about 45-55 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  6. Cool completely and frost the top. Add sprinkles, candles, sparklers and/or whatever else the occasion calls for.
