This is my son’s favorite pie. It is basically just a big Nestle Tollhouse cookie in a pie crust so how can it not be. I don’t know if I would even call it a cookie, it is kind of like eating a stick of butter with some chocolate chips on top. So if you like butter and chocolate, this pie is for you!
Years ago I tried to find a pie my son would like since we pretty much only have pies at Thanksgiving, and I gave this a try. It was a hit not only with him, but with everyone. I always offer to make something a little more “gourmet” for him, but he still goes back to his old favorite. The S’mores Pie I made earlier this year https://stephaniessliceoflife.com/2020/01/27/smore-pie-please/ was a contender, but in the end he went with his old favorite. It is honestly the easiest pie to make ever.
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Beat the eggs on high with an electric mixer until foamy.
Beat in the flour, sugar, and brown sugar until combined. Beat in the butter.
See why I said this is basically a butter pie lol.
Stir in the chocolate chips and spoon into your pie crust.
Bake for 50-60 minutes at 325 degrees until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. As you can see my son likes it with both!
I make whipped cream by whipping 1 cup of heavy cream with an electric mixer until it is just about stiff. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla and 2 tbsp. of confectioners sugar and continue beating until peaks form. Don’t over-beat or it will start to get lumpy.
