Okay- remember Friday when I said I was trying to watch what I eat? Yeah, well I kind of let that go with this one. I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while now + finally bought all the stuff needed to make it. I borrowed the recipe from A Bountiful Kitchen which I found via Pinterest. Let's get started so you can enjoy the goodness too.
Toll House Pie
adapted from Nestle
1-9 inch unbaked pie crust
3/4 cup butter at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup flour (3/4 cup if omitting nuts)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, Nestle semi-sweet are best for this recipe
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts
1/2 teaspoon salt
(cream butter + sugars together)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time and vanilla until blended well. Next, add all of the dry ingredients into the same bowl, mixing all at once, just until wet and dry ingredients are incorporated.
Pour filling into unbaked pie shell(you can make this on your own below OR use store bought like I did.)
(I didn't add any sort of nuts to this)
The recipe calls to make your own pie crust- but I just bought the Publix brand frozen brand because it has to be uncooked. If you want to be extra fancy, you can make your own crust using the instructions below.
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup solid shortening
1/4 cup cold water
Cut shortening into flour and salt in medium size bowl, until the mixture resembles small pieces the size of peas. Add cold water all at once. Mix with a fork until dough starts to form into a ball, do not over mix. Add additional flour to the dough just until the dough is not sticky. Sprinkle flour out onto a flat surface. Roll the dough out and place in a 9 inch pie plate. Lightly press into the corners of the plate. Crimp the edges. Fill and bake as directed above.
Bake on center rack of oven for about 50 minutes or until knife inserted about half way from center of pie to crust (outer edge of pie) comes out clean.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
Sadly we didn't have any vanilla ice cream. So I just ate it normally + it was pretty tasty if I do say so myself. Pretty proud of myself for not messing this thing up. Let me know if you try this out in a comment below. Link me to your recipes too.
