I needed to make a quick dessert last Saturday, so I turned to an old favorite. This is a dessert that I first made when I was 13 or 14 years old (Jon’s age!). I pulled out a frozen pie crust from Whole Foods Bakehouse.
Nestle’ Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie
1 unbaked pie shell (I used Wh0le Foods Bakehouse GF Pie Crust)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup GF Flour (I used Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (I omitted this b/c I didn’t have enough)
Sweetened whipped cream or ice cream for topping (I used Cool Whip in a can)
Preheat oven to 325.
Beat eggs in large mixing bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, sugar & brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in chocolate chips & nuts. Spoon into pie shell.
Bake for 55 to 6o minutes or until knife inserted halfway between the center & the edge comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm w/ whipped cream or ice cream.
**I baked for about 50 minutes. Keep a close eye on this. Mine almost looked overdone on the top, but was perfect.
**If you don’t want all the chips to sink to the bottom, either use mini chocolate chips or dust with GF flour or cocoa.
This was a huge hit. I forgot just how simple & delicious this dessert is. The only bad thing….Jon dropped the last 2 pieces on the floor!! ACK!! I was almost in tears.
