Toll House Pie




I made this pie last week and cannot figure out why I waiting so long to make it. It was delicious and easy. I can see me making this many times.....I just don't want to know how many calories a slice of this has! I've been cooking lately more than I have been baking so I'll be posting some pasta recipes soon. For whatever reason I just don't feel like posting so much right now. I think I am going through a "blogging slump." I still visit all of my usual blogs (tons and tons!) but don't feel like commenting. I've read some other posts recently where other bloggers kind of go through this. I don't want this to become a chore so I am only posting when I really feel like I will enjoy it. If you don't see me commenting much don't think I'm not visiting your blog because I am. Just don't feel like commenting. Enjoy the pie......and it looks like summer is finally right around the corner!!!

2 eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
One 6 ounce package (1 cup) Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels (I also added another 1/2 cup of toffee bits)
1 cup chopped walnuts
One 9 inch unbaked pie shell
Whipped cream or ice cream (optional)


Preheat over to 325 degrees F. In large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add flour, sugar and brown sugar; beat until well blended. Blend in melted butter. Stir in Nestle Toll House semi sweet chocolate morsels and walnuts. Pour into pie shell.* Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.


*If using frozen pie shell, it's necessary to use deep dish style, thawed. Place on cookie sheet and bake additional 10 minutes.

I think we all go through phases like this. And that's the best thing about blogging - it's at your own leisure. This pie looks delicious! I would love a huge piece.

I've seen this pie before, but have not tried it....It looks rather addictive, so I'll have to try it!
I've had blogging blues lately too and have only been posting maybe once a week. I've done better this week so maybe I'm pulling out.

I think we all go through that phase at one point or another. For me, I just get overwhelmed by the amount of blogss I read and it's tough to comment all the time. Don't feel like you have to comment all the time, but if you're interested I'm having a cookbook giveaway right now :-)

Love this pie. I've never made it but it's one my aunt makes for special occasions and it's so simple and delicious.

This pie looks so naughty! But nice :)

I say blog and comment when you feel like it. It's supposed to be fun, not a chore.

Jenn said...

The pie looks fantastic! Yum! There probably aren't that many calories in it right? :)

I think everyone probably goes through a phase like you are going through. And you are right, blogging should never be something that you feel like you HAVE to do. You should love doing it, if you don't, it's definitely time to take a break. And no one says you HAVE to comment every time you visit a blog!! Keep cooking/baking and stay happy!

This looks like a pie I would eat in one sitting. Or standing. Or running. Whenever, really.

I think it's pretty normal to adapt your blogging activity to your mood, how busy you are, etc!

Mags said...

Chocolate chip cookies in pie form... I love it!

Manggy said...

You're entitled! Don't force yourself to leave a comment if you're not feeling it. Anyway, great pie - I might only have a teeny slice though ;)

Ingrid said...

This has been on my list to try for a long time too. I need to just make it already!

Looks truly scrumptious too!

I've been going through the same thing the past few weeks - but I'm also not reading as many. We all have our ups and downs - I totally understand. This pie looks totally sinful! I wish I had a piece!

Amanda said...

oh wow Deb, that sounds marvelous!!

Cheryl said...

I am in the same phase :) I have a friend with a sweet tooth and he will adore this pie! That pork looks mighty yummy too!

Patty said...

I made this pie Sunday and there is one piece left today. Of course the Granddaughter loves it(I don't like pie) and both Daughters had to try it. I will be making it again this evening, when I have the house to myself. Husband wanted to eat the whole thing by himself. Thank you for posting this--I think:)

This looks so decadent!
I'm definitely with you on the blogging blues. I hope to come out of it sometime soon, ha ha.
