I obviously have a hard time letting pie go after Thanksgiving. But as much as I enjoy a good slice of pie I enjoy a good slice of freezer pie even more. My kids feel the exact same way! I also love pairing a good freezer pie with a yummy cookie crust. And nothing pairs better in my mind than chocolate and peppermint to celebrate the winter holidays!
I let my son be the first taste tester of this pie and he said it was the better after school snack ever! And is now going to be a staple at all my holiday get togethers! I of course had to use my go-to cookie mixes! Krusteaz has perfected their cookie mixes and this year they have even added more delicious ones! So to help simplify your holiday season grab some cookie mixes and you can easily bake gifts for neighbors, parties, and for Santa!
