Toll House Pie
Toll House Pie is actually pretty easy to make up, especially if you use a store-bought pie crust. I prefer it with semi-sweet chocolate chips rather than milk chocolate. It also uses chopped walnuts. The filling is to die for. Every bite will have you drooling so badly, you won’t be able to wait for another taste of this exquisite pie.
I got the recipe years ago in the very early 1980s. The church we were attending at the time was rather large (about 2,000 members). Every Sunday night after services we would have a cafe time where you could purchase a slice of pie, pizza, sandwiches and other goodies.
Joe and Millicent Watowa were in their late 70s at the time. They would come into the church kitchen every Saturday and spend all day baking about 50 pies that would be sold by the slice on Sunday nights. Millicent gave me so many delicious pie recipes. I think we tried a slice of every pie she ever made and she had quite the variety. I don’t think you could even purchase pre-made pie crust at the time. Everything was made from scratch. To eat a bite of Millicent’s pies was to eat a bite of heaven. They were so, so good.
As far as I’m concerned this Toll House Pie recipe is to die for. After all these years, we still love this recipe. Some of the chocolate chips melt while baking, but some hold their texture. It’s ooey, gooey and delicious.
I made up two of these pies for a recent Friday night care group in our home. Everyone wanted a piece and just raved and drooled, and raved and drooled, and…. you get the idea. Then I made a couple more for our Sunday night college group. Everyone wanted a slab of pie that night too. I watched everyone’s eyes close as the first bite was swallowed down their throats. Yes, this pie will satisfy every sweet tooth craving you have…and even a few you didn’t know you had!
Toll House Pie is delightful. If you want an easy dessert to make for company, this is it. Especially with the holidays coming up, I recommend you work this pie into your menu. Who says you have to serve Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving?? Nah! Give Toll House Pie a go and you’ll be drooling too.
Toll House Pie is awesome.
Every bite of this spectacular pie will have you drooling!
This easy pie recipe is great to make for company dinners, especially if you enjoy chocolate.
Everyone raved over Toll House Pie!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Roll out the pre-made pie crust.
Press into a 9-inch pie plate. (I think these are 10-inch plates so they don’t fit quite as well.)
Beat eggs in a mixing bowl until frothy. This will take about 3-5 minutes.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add sugar and brown sugar.
Mix with an electric mixer to combine.
Add melted butter.
Mix again with an electric mixer to combine. Start slowly and work up to a higher speed.
Add semi-sweet chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Pour ingredients into prepared pie crust shell.
Bake at 325 degrees for one hour.
Allow pie to cool slightly before cutting into slices.
Add ice cream and chocolate sauce if you want to be really decadent! Toll House Pie will cure any sweet tooth craving you have!
Toll House Pie is a terrific pie to make for the Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays.

I think I could eat the whole pie by myself. (Gulp).
