Chocolate Chip Pie Is Easy and Delicious

My family comes over every Sunday for lunch. Afterward, we watch sports, talk and spend time together catching up.

I usually make Sunday’s dessert on Saturday. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time this past Saturday baking because I was crazy busy (aren’t we all?).

I realized that it had been a while since I baked a Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie and I had everything on hand to make it, so I did.

I didn’t create this recipe. Duh. It’s been around forever. I do add a teaspoon of vanilla to this chocolate chip pie. The original recipe doesn’t call for vanilla. 

You Can Replace The Pecans With Walnuts

You can use walnuts instead of pecans. Pecans are always my nuts of choice for this recipe because I’m not crazy about walnuts.

Usually, if a recipe calls for walnuts, I add pecans instead. Pecans will always be my favorite. However, feel free to replace the pecans with walnuts. I had a little less than the cup of chopped nuts it calls for, so I added a few more chocolate chip morsels. Chocolate makes everything better, right?

Chocolate Chip Pie

I started to reduce the butter for this one, but I thought, “What the heck, leave it alone.” When you start playing around with a classic pie recipe, you can end up with one that’s just so-so. Why mess with perfection?

Chocolate Chip Pie

Beat eggs on high speed until foamy. Beat in granulated sugar, flour, and brown sugar. Add butter and beat until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Spoon into a deep-dish pie shell.

Unbaked Chocolate Chip Pie

Bake at 325º for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted between center and edge comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
