food: chocolate chip pie

This pie is so incredibly easy to make and so incredibly yummy! I made it the other day when we had a friend over for dinner and we quickly ate most of it (thankfully there was a little bit left over for a snack the next day :)). I used a pre-made pie crust, but am wondering if I could make a pie crust and then use a baking dish to have the recipe come out as bars instead of pie. I'm thinking they would be a great little dessert to bring to a potluck or some other gathering :)
Chocolate Chip Pie - adapted slightly from Nestle Toll House
1 unbaked 9-inch deep dish pie shell
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar (I used 1/4 cup granulated and 1/4 raw turbinado sugar)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup butter (1-1/2 sticks)
1 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans, but will try walnuts next time)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy, about 3-4 minutes. Beat in flour, granulated sugar (turbinado if you are using it), and brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Spoon into pie shell.

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean. Around 35 minutes while baking, I added aluminum foil to prevent the crust from becoming any browner.


  1. Just use an 8x8 square pan instead of the 9" pie pan.
