I have been making this pie for many years and it's still one of our favorites. It's just like a big chocolate chip cookie in a pie form. It's best served a little warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Here is what you will need:
1 unbaked 9" deep dish pie shell
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
dash of salt
Beat the eggs with an electric mixer until they are foamy. Beat in the flour and the sugars until it's smooth, then beat in the butter and add vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips and the nuts.
Place the pie shell in a pie plate or use a frozen pie shell and place the dish on a cookie sheet or pizza pan which aids the pie in cooking evenly and will catch any spills. Pour the batter into the pie shell and place into a preheated 325 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool slightly before serving. Slice and serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
