Tollhouse Cookie Pie: A quick holiday treat

While this recipe is not terribly unique,  it is on the back of the Nestle chocolate chip package, it is terribly delicious.  This pie is the best of both worlds, gooey like a chocolate chip cookie and buttery crusted like a pie.  It also is the ultimate I-need-a-quick-dessert recipe.  In truth, the bake time is not quick but it goes together super fast and the ingredients are those you have on hand if you bake often.  Cookie pie has long been a longtime favorite in my family and my book club just inhaled it so I wanted to share it with you as well.


Cast of Characters:

1 frozen 9-inch deep dish pie crust, thawed
2 eggs
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup of flour
3/4 cup (1 and 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup of chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli, ssssh don't tell Nestle!)
1 cup of nuts (optional)


1) Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees. Whip the two eggs on high until foamy.  In a stand mixer this will take 2-3 minutes.



2) Add in the sugar, brown sugar and flour.


3) Beat in the softened butter until all the ingredients are well combined.


4) Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts if you use them on low until gently combined.  Walnuts are wonderful in this pie, but I omitted them because I didn't know my book club's nut preferences.



5) Pour mixture into your pie crust and bake in the oven for 55-60 minutes until a knife comes out clean. Note: After 60 minutes my knife did not come clean but my pie crust and top were sufficiently brown...and cracked after being stuck twice...so I decided it was done.

This pie is great on its own, or with a little scoop of ice cream or homemade whipped cream.  If you do not eat it immediately, warm it in the microwave for 20 seconds before indulging.  Its pretty rich, so a sliver will do you well!  Do you have an easy, go-to holiday recipe for desserts on the fly?

Thanks for visiting my blog--glad you liked the dresses.
This has been my favorite pie for a long time! I didn't know you could make it without nuts, I'll have to try that sometime. In case you are interested, nestle also has a recipe for a bar form of this pie. I bet you could find it online.
