I just HAD to post this recipe for Toll House Pie. It is officially the most requested pie recipe in our home. It is the one food item requested for every Birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Millard Fillmore’s Birthday…well…you get the idea. Our two sons are grown men and they STILL request this for their birthdays. That makes this mom’s heart happy.
I received this “gift” of a recipe from a friend named Cindi who I used to sing with in a church choir in Southern CA over 30 years ago. I’m sure she had noooo idea that it would become one of my most worn out recipe cards. It is such an easy recipe – and what a keeper!
Enjoy a slice of this pie (filled with chocolate chips, pecans, brown sugar, etc.) that is decadent, rich, and sweet enough to put hair on your chest!
Grab a fork and take a nice, big bite! Hope you enjoy it.

- 3/4 cup butter , melted (then cooled to room temp)
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark-I usually use dark)
- 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts , chopped (I always use pecans)
- 2 eggs
- 1 6 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (plus additional chips if you want to swirl some on top of baked pie for decorative look)
- 1 pie crust (either buy one or make your own...I always make my own)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Mix all ingredients together in large mixing bowl.
- Pour mixture into an unbaked pie crust. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool down on a wire rack.
- If desired, melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips in a double boiler and decoratively swirl the melted chocolate over the top of the baked, and cooled pie.
