I got this recipe from one of my lovely readers, The Cooking Actress. She refers to this pie as "the most delicious thing you'll ever eat," and after tasting it, I can see why!
The theme for baking club this past week was "pies," in the spirit of Thanksgiving and autumn. I made two apple pies, two home-churned ice creams, and there were many other pies available as well. But guess which pie disappeared first in a crowd of hungry high-schoolers?
This chocolate chip cookie pie.
I mean, who wouldn't want a warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookie the size of their head?
This is nothing like those stale, chocolate chip "cookie cakes" that you find at the supermarket. This is super chewy, buttery, and dense... imagine the best chocolate chip cookie in the world on steroids.
Oh, and did I mention this pie is about 10 times easier to make than regular chocolate chip cookies?
This recipe is the newest edition to my permanent repertoire, and will be making an appearance at my Thanksgiving table, Pi Day at school, and every other occasion that requires pie.
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup (which equals about 16 tbsp) butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 homemade or store bought pie shell (I used a Ritz Cracker pie crust)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Then beat in flour, sugar, and brown sugar, until well blended. Then blend in melted, room temperature, butter. Stir in (with a spoon, etc.) chocolate chips. (The consistency will not be like regular cookie dough, and it won't taste that awesome, so don't be disappointed. Just wait, the pie will be worth it.)
Pour in to pie shell. Bake for 50-60 minutes.
