Chocolate Chip Pie
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 pie for Thanksgiving because it’s one of my kid’s favorite desserts.
CHOCOLATE CHIP PIE
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 recipe 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.
CAN I MAKE THIS WITHOUT NUTS?
You can make this with or without nuts depending on your preference.
CAN I FREEZE CHOCOLATE CHIP PIE?
Yes. It freezes well. To eat, thaw and heat in the oven at 350 degrees for ten minutes or in the microwave.

Chocolate Chip Pie
- 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
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 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, brown sugar, and vanilla. 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.
Making this right now. Made it exactly how the directions said. It’s been in the oven now for I don’t know how long, I’ve lost track of the extra min I’ve added on, at least 30 min on top of the initial 55. I also increased the temp this last time to 350, hoping that makes a difference. Just hope the crust isn’t ruined. I’ve had it covered in foil since it started to get brown so fingers crossed.
Update: The pie finally got done enough after that last attempt. Still kind of gooey but that’s not all bad. 😋 For all of the baking frustration, it turned out delicious. Not sure what the problem was, ovens aren’t created equal so it could be that, or maybe elevation?? If I make it again I will set the temp at 350 to begin and hopefully that will take care of it.
I couldn’t find deep dish pie crust in my little town grocery store. Will a regular pie crust work if I halve the ingredients?
Yes it should work!
Just made this and waiting for it to cool. We don’t like nuts so I got a bag of fun size crunchy bars and halved them to put on the top. Cooked for 45 mins then an extra 10 on a lower heat with the tinfoil tent.
The smell alone is to die for
Hello! Can you make it a day in advance? How do you store it? Thanks!
Yes you can make ahead of time and freeze as well. you can store room temperatue.
This looks delicious! Can it be made without nuts?
Followed exactly and it turned out perfectly!
Delicious and will definitely make again ❤️
Can’t wait to try this! Is the cook time really 325?
We just had our in-laws over for a faux Thanksgiving this weekend since they live out of town. I made this pie and 2 others. All the pies were great but this was the sleeper hit of the whole thing. It was amazing. Like a light, semi-fluffy chocolate chip cookie pie. It is going on my top dessert list. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
That makes me so happy!
How many calories for a slice of the pie
It all depends on what brands you use. I use MyfitnessPal to calculate nutritional info and I would use that to find out.
It’s 5 days before Xmas, asking if it’s too early to bake this pie and freeze, if freezeable.
Sorry yes you can freeze it
Just made this tonight and followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of cooking an extra 10 minutes. It was still super gooey, but delicious! Will be making again for Thanksgiving and may add another 5-10 minutes baking. I tented the pie with foil after cooking for 45 minutes. Served with fresh whipped cream.
All I have to say is God Bless You! Some of these critical and forward comments! Is tact a thing of the past? Adults should know there is always more than one way to skin a cat, so to speak, and not everything is for everyone. Hence the beauty of the world….variety. I haven’t even made this pie, lol, but I had to comment on the comments!! I’ll be making it this afternoon and looking forward to it. I appreciated your interesting remarks and description when I was searching online.
Helps keep things interesting! The process of searching can be tedious so I appreciate it. I look forward to trying this today! Just waiting for my pie dough to rest. Have a great day.
Can you do it with out nuts? Would you need to add something else ?
Everyone loves this our in my family.
I would like to make double the recipe for 2 pies but cook one right away and the other one the next day for another dinner. Can I leave it uncooked in the fridge for a day or should I cook it and just reheat?
You can totally leave it uncooked but it reheats very well so cooking ahead of time is very convenient.
I have no idea what the people who have complained about this recipe may have done wrong but I whipped this up for the first time tonight. Didn’t have a pie crust so made that first and while it chilled, I made the filling. While waiting for the dough to firm up a bit more, I popped the filling in the fridge for 15 min. Baked it for 55 min exactly and it was crunchy on top and gooey inside and it was definitely set. It is delicious. Added a scoop of vanilla bean on top. Great, easy recipe; just follow as is 🙂
Thanks Liz! I appreciate the feedback.
Oh snap, I put the choc chips and pecans in before beating in the butter, so I beat it all up together. I hope it still turns out ok. If not, I’ll try again. Thanks for the recipe!
Should be totally fine!
Could I use store bought cookie dough?
Sure! It’s not quite the same though.
Oh my goodness! Made this for a cookout….AMAZING! Everyone loved it. So easy to make and absolutely delicious! Thank you.
So glad you liked it.
I have now added an extra 40 minutes to the baking time, taking it out and checking it every ten minutes. Nothing but a gooey mess. I agree with the others who say there is something off in the recipe ingredients list. More flour? Less butter? Who knows? I just know I wasted a lot of ingredients and time trying to get this pie to come out to be edible. Recipe definitely needs some tweeking. Just wish I had read the comments before I baked the pie. Was looking forward to including this with our Easter dinner.
Sorry Sharon. There are also hundreds of people who have made this with success. I’m sorry yours did not turn out.
I doubled the recipe, was making 2 and accidentally didn’t add enough butter was 1/4 cup shy and I also added coconut, it set up great the coconut added a good texture.
I bet the coconut was great!
