Such a great pie. Such an EASY pie!
I'm so excited because today we are talking about one of my favorite desserts.
Today is all about the classic chocolate chip cookie pie. It was often made while I was growing up, especially on Thanksgiving, and most definitely on Christmas. This pie holds so many memories for me, plus it’s downright delicious!
Our family really isn’t big on fruity pies. I think even my mom would agree that she is mostly to blame. For my mom, dessert isn’t dessert unless it includes chocolate, so naturally I picked that up.
That meant our holiday pies were either chocolate chip cookie pie or chocolate pecan pie. Most time it was both – that’s just what you do during the holidays!
When I started cooking and baking, this was one of the first pies I made. It’s SO easy that I got it right the very first time. My only little secret is to add vanilla extract. I swear, adding just a little vanilla makes all the difference. Oh, and double the chocolate. It’s just the way to go.
Okay, so here's how you make it!
Grab your ingredients and preheat oven to 325ºF.
Take one thawed pie crust and press it into a greased 8 or 9-inch pie plate.
Beat the eggs in large mixing bowl on high speed until foamy.
Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
Beat in the butter and vanilla.
Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. (Nuts can be omitted if you want.)
Pour the dough out into the prepared 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 ice cream and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, if desired.
