Snickerdoodle Pie

This pie looked so interesting when I saw it, and I love snickerdoodle cookies so I had to try it. The pie is made from snickerdoodle cookies…well actually my snickerdoodle bar recipe that can be cookies too and the recipe for the cookies/bars follows. This pie is really rich and would be great served for guests or for a holiday!
