One of my favorite traditions at my current place of employment is that, on the day before Thanksgiving, I get to bring home a pie that I didn’t have to make. This year I brought home two. Besides being an annual event to which I look forward, almost more than any other, this tradition has also introduced chocolate chip cookie pie to my life. I used to be willing to do unspeakable things to the people who stood between me and my annual chocolate chip cookie pie. Then I learned how to make it. Now it graces our table every year, and I don’t have to resort to violence for it to do so.
To make a pie, you will need:
- 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
- 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 (6 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1 cup chopped nuts
PREHEAT oven to 325° F.
BEAT eggs in large mixer bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in morsels and nuts. Spoon into pie shell.
BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.
