Since it is getting a bit cooler I have sweets on the brain. My family doesn't bake a lot of sweets till the fall, who wants to be in a hot kitchen when it's 100 degrees outside? So with October comes baking. I am going to share with you an oh so YUMMY pie that has been a main staple at every Thanksgiving, Christmas, potluck, etc for my family.
Toll House Pie
(Chocolate Chip Pie)
1/2 c. flour
(I use whole wheat pastry flour)
1/2 c. of sugar
1/2 c. of brown sugar
3/4 c. of butter, melted
6-8 oz of chocolate chips
( I use 1/2 semi-sweet and 1/2 white chocolate)
1 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
1 9" frozen, unbaked deep dish pie crust
(or homemade, but I never have that kind of time!)
Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs until foamy about 2 minutes
Beat in flour, sugar and brown sugar until well blended.
Beat in butter. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Pour into the pie shell
Bake for 45-60 min until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean
Serve with vanilla ice cream for an extra special touch!
If you make said pie and serve it at any event where there are men, be prepared to have them do a few things
a.) Say, "You must give this recipe to my wife, mom, girlfriend etc!!!"
b.) Do a happy dance while eating, I've actually witness this happening!
c.) Put in a request that you bring this dessert at the next event
So enjoy the pie!
