Skip the dunking and try this ‘Cookies ‘n’ Milk’ pie

Vegan baker Clara Polito brings together the best of both worlds with a chocolate chip cookie pie topped with sweet milk pudding. The recipe is from her new book, "Clara Cakes."

What is it about a warm homemade chocolate chip cookie that calls for a cold tall glass of milk? Or a cool glass of soy milk, if you’re vegan baking diva Clara Polito. Which begs the next question: To dunk or not to dunk? We’ve all seen over-zealous dunkers come up empty-handed. Polito, the 20-year-old vegan behind Clara Cakes, solves this conundrum with a fun Cookies ‘n’ Milk pie recipe from her new book. This dessert brings together the best of both worlds — chocolate chip cookie goodness and sweet pudding made from soy and coconut milk — and delivers them to you in one tasty slice of pie. Go ahead: Enjoy your cookies and milk, no dunking needed.
