Last year was the first Thanksgiving that I spent with Chris. Coincidentally it was also my introduction to an amazingly sinful and delicious dessert known as “Toll House Pie.” Essentially Toll House Pie is a gigantic, gooey chocolate chip cookie nestled in pie crust. Chris’s father is the king of Toll House Pie. I looked forward to devouring a gigantic piece of his luscious dessert again all week. Needless to say I was not disappointed. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about how awesome that piece of pie tasted. After much internal debate (and a solemn vow to use the elliptical machine every night this week) I finally looked up a recipe online and made a Toll House Pie of my very own. Oh man…it was so worth having to spend all of that time running in place. Note: I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the recipe linked above. I’d also recommend reducing the cooking time slightly to 45-50 minutes. Now go get the chocolate chips and lace up those sneakers!

Yummy. I think you should make this for your party. Just my opinion.

This is such a delicious pie. Do you happen to know how I would need to adjust the cooking time for a deep dish version?

Hi Sara,

If you’re planning to double the recipe to accommodate filling a traditional deep dish pan than I’d try upping the time to an hour and 20 minutes but check it frequently. It will probably take much longer than that, but you’ll know when it’s done. Plus, if it isn’t really that done, no one will care because they’re being served a plate of delicious cookie dough nestled in pie crust. Good luck!

Can I make an impossible pie by adding bisquick rather than use a piecrust?? I made this years ago and thought that is what I did and had no crust?? Anyone have that recipe??
