PieDay Friday-Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Some things are so good on their own, that they are just begging to made into a pie.  Take for instance the humble chocolate chip cookie.  Beloved by adults and children alike. It's the standard against which all other cookies are measured. Even if it's not your very favorite cookie, you probably like it pretty darn well.  When I think of food items like this, I get the urge to make them into a pie.  Somehow, I made a blueberry muffin pie and root beer float pie before a chocolate chip cookie pie. I'm not sure how that happened but I am glad that I did finally get around to it.

This pie sets up almost like a reverse pecan pie. The chocolate chips sink to the bottom giving this pie a rich, gooey chocolate base. The top part resembles a pecan pie filling both in looks and to some degree flavor.  Bits of toffee arrange themselves throughout the entire filling and provide a satisfying crunch in every bite.  This is one decadent pie that will find it's way to your table again and again!

Stop by 504 and Main and tell Holly I said "Hi"! She has featured my Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie from last week along with some great crafts and table settings from other blogs. Be sure to link up with her Tickled Pink Blog Hop as well!

Tips:
  • I used mini chocolate chips because that's what I had on hand. You can use mini, regular and large chocolate chips and achieve the same result.
  • Toffee pieces can be found near chocolate chips at most grocery stores. The only brand I know off-hand is Heath but I'm sure different stores offer others. You can also break up several Heath or Skor bars to equal one cup
  • If you prefer, walnuts may be substituted for the toffee.
  • Take care not to peak at pie while it's cooking. Every time you open the oven door heat escapes and the oven temperature drops. This means more uneven cooking and a longer baking time, which can lead to overcooked sides and a runny center. This goes for anything baked in an oven, but this pie is particularly sensitive to it.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup toffee pieces
1 9 inch deep dish pie crust, unbaked

In a large bowl, combine lightly beaten eggs, flour, both sugars, salt, vanilla and softened butter.  Beat with an electric mixer until well combined.  Stir in chocolate chips and toffee pieces. Add to unbaked pie crust. Bake at 325 for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until golden and center is set.  Allow pie to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

You got me with the chocolate part...then cookies and then PIE??? Totally intriguing. Once the prom is over and I don't have to keep shrinking to fit my dress, this is one recipe I will definitley try. Hubby won't do nut though, so I'll just add more toffee bits. Yum.
