Toll House Pie - Made by MiMi

     As I told you in the Pi day compilation, toll house pie is a tradition.  But with all of the other pies we have had recently, I just couldn't bring myself to make one.  MiMi woke up today thinking about it too.  When she saw my mention of one in the post, she had to make one.  So we had toll house pie after all!
    If you've never had a toll house pie, it is like a gooey chocolate chip cookie in pie form.  Think about that for a second!  Yum!
      Here is what she said about it:
Homemade chocolate cookies were almost a staple in our home when our children were younger.  When I came across the recipe for tollhouse pie I knew I had to try it.  Since I have a large pie dish I decided to make the recipe larger than called for.  The original recipe fell a little short.  I recommend putting a cookie sheet under the pie tin just in case.

Toll House Pie

Ingredients:

3 eggs
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cups butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1 T vanilla
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips 

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy.  
  3. Use 1 T of flour and mix it in with the chocolate chips to keep them from sinking.
  4. Add the remainder of the flour, sugar and brown sugar to the eggs.  Beat until well blended.  
  5. Stir in melted butter and chocolate chips.
  6. Pour mixture into a prepared pie shell.
  7. Bake at 325 F for one hour and 15 minutes.  You may want to cover the edges of the crust if they are getting too brown.
