Toll House Pie Tarts

Sometimes I crave Toll House Pie. For instance yesterday I was sitting on the couch enjoying having Monday off and watching Wives and Daughters via Amazon’s very cool “Unbox” feature on the TiVo, except all I could think about was chocolate. Finally I paused my movie and started peering into cupboards in the kitchen. I noticed a packet of wonton wrappers that I’d purchased and I had an idea. What if I used the wonton wrappers to make mini Toll House Pie Tarts…and so I did.

I based the cooking time for the tarts on the Nasoya Wonton Mini Quiche recipe and lowered the baking temperature to 350 degrees. For the filling I halved the traditional Toll House Pie recipe and used an ice cream scoop to fill each tart. Each cup was made by layering two wontons diagonally in order to get a maximum amount of coverage in the muffin tin. You can whip these tarts up in around 30 minutes and they’d definitely travel well if you’re looking for something rich and sweet to bring to Thanksgiving.

Looks good… what if you had closed them up, then fried them. That might be cool.

Hey Jeff,

Personally I hate frying things (because I usually end up burning myself), but I’m sure you definitely could. Although I think the batter would just melt and ooze out rather than having the firmer consistency of pie filling. I wonder how that could work? Hmm..

Great idea Erin! Please tell me you’ll be serving this at the Erin Cooks Holiday party.

Nicole – You’re in for a super treat! Toll House Pie is sinful. Imagine warm cookie dough with pie crust. Enough said, right?

Hänni – We’ll see… although I’m thinking about branching out a bit on the sweets for this year’s party. Unless you personally request Toll House Pie — as my house guest you’d obviously win.

Melissa – I’d pay to see that! Just kidding! :P

I’ve made the regular toll house pies and they have always been a hit. I love this mini pie idea. Great for a bake sale and I will make them next week end to raise money for Relay For Life. Thanks for having that chocolate urge. I usually just eat the chips out of the bag : )
