Ok I hinted I would share with you the one pie I make every year only for the Holidays!!
I came across this pie when I lived in Connecticut and was working as a nanny. When I first arrived in CT the mom I worked ofr took me out for a drive so I could kind of acclimate myself to the area. We ended up at this adorable little cafe on the menu was “Toll House Pie” I had to try it!! It was amazing a cross between a warm chocolate chip cookie and a gooey pecan pie!!! I was in heaven.
Well after that I went in search of the recipe…now this was way before the internet was a household commodity!! I searched and searched and searched. Finally about 10 years later I stumbled upon the recipe and began making the pies ONLY during the holidays!
So from me to you here is my recipe for:
TOLL HOUSE PIE
- 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell *
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1 t vanilla
- 1 cup (6 oz.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- Sweetened whipped cream or ice cream (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 325° F.
BEAT eggs in large mixer bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in morsels and nuts. Spoon into pie shell.
BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.
