CHOCOLATE CHIP MACAROON CHEESECAKE PIE! Share Tags: dessert This is my Dessert Entry for the "Real Women of Philadelphia" Recipe Contest! I came up with the original recipe and went on a local Television show, "Better CT" as the "At Home Chef". The pie then was called "Easy Chocolate Chip Macaroon Pie"! I tweaked it for this contest and added a Cheesecake bottom would make it even better! We have to use Philadelphia Cream Cheese in each recipe. Well the Cheesecake bottom is great added to my pie!! Normally I want to serve it with ice cream, but with the cream cheese it adds the right creaminess to the pie! NO ICE CREAM NEEDED! A little Kraft Cool Whip is all! The pie is a blend of coconut, chocolate, nuts and cream heese!! Yummy! Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 40 minutes | Total time: 50 minutes | Servings: 8 1 Deep Dish Ready to Bake Pie Crust
