This Chocolate Chip Pie is one of my favorite pies ever and I can’t believe I haven’t shared it here yet. It’s basically a chocolate chip cookie in a pie but a little more gooey. I make this for Thanksgiving because it’s one of my kid’s favorites.
Did you know that Steve Jobs wore the same thing every day? A black turtleneck and jeans. He had to make so many huge decisions in his day to day that he didn’t want what he was wearing to be one of them. You know who else was/is known to wear the same thing every day? Einstein, Obama, and Mark Zuckerberg. Research shows that the act of making decisions degrades your ability to make further decisions (Forbes).
Knowing that explains a lot.
I will eat healthy all day long – start off with a protein shake, have a nice salad for lunch, fruit and veggies for snacks, and some protein based meal for dinner. Then, when my husband strolls in at 10:30 at night from a business trip with cookies the size of my outstretched hand, I devour 3 of them in less than a minute. I’ve used all of my self control by the end of the day. Cookies are my ultimate weakness. Which is why this Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie is one of my all-time favorites. The filling is made basically of cookie dough. Hello.You must eat this warm with a big scoop of ice cream.
- 1 unbaked 9-inch deep dish pie pastry
- 2 large eggs
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 3⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Beat eggs in large mixer bowl on high speed until foamy and pale in color. Beat in flour, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in butter until combined.
- Stir in morsels and nuts. Spoon into pie shell. The mixture will be thick.
- Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean. You may want to make a foil tent over the pie towards the end so the crust doesn't brown too much. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
