Chocolate Cookie Cake Pie

I got this recipe from cakespy blog

I believe I used all Pillsbury products for my version of Chocolate Cookie Cake Pie.

1 Pillsbury Pie Crust
1 Package of Pillsbury Walnut Chocolate Chip Pull apart Cookie Dough
1 Pillsbury Chocolate Cake Mix
1 container Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Frosting
2 teaspoons of cinnamon

This was the easiest dessert I've ever made.

Put the pie crust in the pie pan. Put a layer of cookie dough to cover the bottom. (I had some cookie dough left over so I put it in the freezer.)
Prepare cake per the directions on the box ( I used 1 teaspoon cinnamon in the cake mix). Pour over the cookie pie crust. (I had enough mixture leftover to make 24 mini muffins.)
I baked it at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Let cool, then frost. I put 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in the frosting before spreading it on the cake.

It is really good -and a little bit goes a long way. The flaky pie crust really helps cut the sweetness of the cookie dough.

Herbal Experiment - Week 1

The basil, thyme, and cilantro have teeny tiny leaves. Am I growing "micro" herbs ?
This is sage, lavender and chives. So far so good.
This is the basil, thyme, and italian parsley. The italian parsley is barely holding on.

Here is my cilantro. Still alive, but we do have one dead limb.
I bought some liquid plant food... I read this is supposed to be good for them in the summer... Stay tuned for week 2
