If you were caught out in the cold without a cookie pie of your own the first time Messina blessed our city by giving them away for free, then you've got another shot at glory. After a brief flirtation with red velvet, Messina is finally bringing back its OG choc-chip studded, bake-at-home cookie pie.
When Messina stores around Sydney debuted the cookie pie in April, they sold out in a flash – there was a lot of chaos, but also a lot of pies delivered safely to doorsteps. Learning from the experience, Messina stores have opened up pre-orders to keep up with their hungry cookie monster clientele.
The pie serves two to six people – or just one person who's forgoing dinner for sweet lashings of choc-chip. It's no longer free – it'll set you back $20 – but it's a pretty sweet deal if you bundle it with some gelato – which you'll need to spoon on top, anyway. Grab a pie and a 500ml tub for $28, or go the full haul and package it up with a 1.5L tub for $39. Most will be reserved for pick-up (this is an essential item, right?), but a selected number will be available for delivery via Deliveroo.
Once you bring your cookie pie baby home, just pop it in the oven for the warm, pillowy dessert of your dreams. Make sure to spoon some gelato on top so it melts over the edges, just so. Pre-order here – and get in quick to pick up your pie from Thursday, May 14.
