Toll House Pie!

This has been one of my favorites so far! I’ve had it pinned on pinterest a while and wanted to make something delicious on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It’s pretty much like a tollhouse cookie but not fully baked and all gooey. AWESOME.

Toll House Pie
From Nestle
Makes one nine-inch pie
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts [I left out the nuts because I don’t like nuts in my cookies and figured I wouldn’t here either]
Sweetened whipped cream and vanilla ice cream, optional [we used fat free vanilla ice cream]
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Ready the pie shell (if using a frozen pie shell, you do not need to thaw it).
In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the eggs on high until light and fluffy. [I didn’t know what that meant, but this looked right to me]:
Add the flour, sugar, and brown sugar and mix well. Beat in butter and vanilla.
Add the chocolate chips [and walnuts].
[This was when I sampled the mixture and discovered it was a very different consistency than actual cookie dough – much lighter and fluffier and not nearly as good. It was also not as salty (no salt added) which is one of my favorite things about cookie dough.]
Spoon the dough into the pie shell…
and bake for approximately 1 hour until a toothpick inserted halfway from the edge and the center comes out clean (at the suggestion of the blog from which I found the recipe, I added a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips to the top of the pie halfway through baking, since most of the chocolate chips apparently sink during baking).
Cool on a wire rack and serve warm with whipped cream and ice cream.
This pie can be made ahead. When to serve, rewarm in a 300 degree F oven for 20 minutes.
It was DELICIOUS! The hubby said it hadn’t sounded that great to him in theory but he loved it too, and our little man couldn’t get enough. DEFINITELY making this one again.
Oh, and I didn’t screw anything up!
