chocolate chip cookie pie

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.

With love,


  • 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.

  1. OMG I know-it is soooo delicious! I just die. So yummy. So glad you and your friends loved it!

  2. EEeeee so excited you guys loved it as much as I do!! Sooo good!

  3. Mine is baking this very minute :) I used a ritz cracker crust, too. My boys will love a slice after school today with a scoop of ice cream. Thanks for the great recipe! Quick question about your twix cupcakes in previous post-you mentioned in the description about a shortbread cookie on the bottom but it wasn't mentioned in ingredient list-what kind of cookie did you use? Pecan Sandie maybe? Thanks again.

    1. Yum! Ahhh I'm sure your boys will be thrilled! I used Simply Sandies.

  4. Biscoff crust. This pie screams for a Biscoff crust. Thank you for sharing this, I'm stoked to give it a shot! Your school baking club sounds like so much fun. Did you help found it?

    1. Ohhhh Biscoff crust sounds delish! I have been eyeing a recipe for Biscoff cupcakes for some time now... I will have to make those soon!
      It is a LOT of fun, surprisingly, it was already established when I got to the high school!

  5. I love making this, but I have always known it as Toll House Pie!

  6. How did I miss this before?! Thanks for posting with your Thanksgiving menu!

julia's banana bread

I just woke up from one of the best dreams I've ever had.  At the moment, I am sitting on Amtrak -- rolling through miles of factory towns and burnt out buildings on my way to New York City.  As much as I love the city that never sleeps, I seriously needed some sleep. Thank the Lord it's spring break and I can finally log out of my school e-mail account, hang up my backpack, and get some serious shut eye.  About an hour ago, the bumpiness of the train lulled me to sleep, and I was transported far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city...

It's a bit of a pet peeve of mine when people tell me about their dreams.  Not their dreams as in aspirations, but their nonsensical, rambling, nighttime dreams about purple cows and police chases.  Please forgive me, but I need to share this awesome dream with you guys.  It's nothing crazy or complicated  -- just a small tree house, a winding road, and some really good banana bread.

I had my noise cancelling headphones on, …

recipe showdown: belgian waffles

It's humiliating.  It's tragic.  It's the decay of Western civilization.
... and I can't stop watching it.

Ever since I heard that little, blond, 4-foot-tall toddler's famous catchphrase"a dollar makes me holler honey boo boo," I've been in love.
She's hyperactive, uninhibited, and foul-mouthed... and I'm kind of obsessed.

But since this is technically a food blog, I should be talking about food, not the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."  I did a little research and the Honey Boo Boo clan has some *pretty* interesting dishes.
Have you ever heard of "Sketti"?
Spaghetti, doused with a sauce that is one part margarine, one part ketchup.
However, the most infamous Honey Boo Boo specialty is her "go go juice" -- a secret mix of Mountain Dew and Red Bull that gets her "go go"-ing for her pageants.  If you aren't familiar with "go go juice," click here.  Thank me later.

Anyways, I have my own version…

sex in a pan

Did I catch your attention? Good.
This is a sinfully decadent, sinfully easy dessert with a sinfully rewarding response.

It's not the daintiest, nor the prettiest. As a matter of fact, it's basically a hot mess in a pan.
But you know what? Despite it's frightening appearance, people just can't keep their hands off of it.
I made this for the first time for my school's Winter Sports Banquet.  In the morning, I put it in the fridge, all wrapped up in foil with a big sign saying DO NOT EAT...

When I came back to get it for the banquet, some sneaky little devil had eaten half the pan.  I wonder who it was...
Was it the P.E. teacher, trying to get his chocolate fix before he had to teach another period of freshman Health?
Was it the librarian, trying to drown her sorrows due to the fact that no one checks out anything but textbooks anymore?
Was it that "innocent" little freshman boy from Baking club?
I'll never know...

However, what I do know is that som…
