Chocolate Chip Pie

Monday, January 14, 2013

I realize that to most, the thought of crossing chocolate chip cookies and a pie may not be on their kitchen to-do list... but this recipe caught my eye the other day on the back of a  bag of chocolate chips and I couldn't resist. I needed to find different pie/quiche recipes anyway for all of the instant pie dough I got! And it also balanced out our dinner tonight...We had a giant strawberry and spinach salad with raspberry vinaigrette, along with this pie! Yummy!

The recipe is as follows:

2 large eggs
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. mini chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

~Preheat oven to 325*

~Beat eggs on high until foamy.

~Beat in flour, sugar, and brown sugar.

~Beat in butter, softened

~Stir in chocolate chips/nuts

~Spoon into pie shell {does not have to be pre-baked, can be homemade or Betty Crocker mix as I mentioned the other day, which is much much easier!}

~Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife comes out clean

~Serve warm with whipped cream, ice cream, or anything you desire!

~I had it by itself and it was still simply wonderful... Love chocolate chip cookies, even in pie form!

Now it may look funny in the picture, but it is really scrumptious! And of course, as with the tomatoes in the quiche, the chocolate chips in this pie sunk to the bottom as it cooked. So you get a layer of crust, a layer of chocolate, then a layer of the cooked dough and a crunch on top. It is really too yummy!
