This simple pie is one of a favorite holiday desserts of my childhood. It needs no baking after you melt the marshmallows on the stove top and add the other ingredients. Then chill in the fridge for an hour and it's ready to serve!

Notes
I used Pamela’s Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies. For shallow 9” pyrex plate it took 12 cookies. If you have a deep dish pie pan, use 16 cookies which will make 2 cups and increase the butter to 4 T. There are nine cookies in a box. It takes 2 boxes.
