Food For Friday: Toll House Pie

I loved this pie when I was younger and often requested my mom to make it. I remembered it a couple of years ago and realized I hadn't made it in a long time. I got the recipe from my mom and made it for Thanksgiving. It was as good as I remembered and I've made it several times since then. It's fast and easy to prepare and I almost always have all of the needed ingredients on hand in my kitchen. It's a dense, rich, chocolate chip cookie pie that is delicious warm from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream & perfect on a chilly night.

Ingredients:
1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust (I use the Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust in the red box)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
vanilla ice cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare the pie shell in a pie pan.

Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in chocolate chips & nuts. Spoon into the pie shell.

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted 1/2 way between the edge and the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream.

(Note: If using a frozen pie shell, use deep dish style, thawed. Bake on a baking sheet; increase baking time slightly.)

Hi Amber,
I found you by Between Here and Home. What a beautiful blog! I went back through a number of posts and plan to be back. I'm thrilled you posted this recipe! I've been wanting to try something with chocolate chips and this certainly seems to fit the bill, beautifully!

Blessings,
