The Most Delicious Toll House Pie Ever

Posted by  ·  July 24, 2019  ·  Last Updated: July 24, 2019

Since we are on a roll this week with sweet treats, I had to share my Toll House Pie recipe.  I thought this easy pie recipe would be a great way to finish up the week. Just think a delicious warm gooey chocolate chip cookie in a pie! YUM.

We have had the best brownie recipe, peanut butter no bake cookies, chocolate chip cheesecake dip so far this week, and now this yummy pie recipe! If you love pie as much as I do, we’ve got more – my sister-in-law makes the best peach pie in the world.

The Most Delicious Toll House Pie Ever

Believe me, this Toll House Cookie Pie won’t disappoint. This is one of my favorite pies, and to say the kids like it is an understatement. It’s a crowd pleaser, even for people who don’t typically like pies.

Toll House Pie

This chocolate chip cookie pie recipe is my go-to dessert! It is easy to throw together, and can bake while you are eating dinner – perfect for when company is coming for dessert!  It can also be made a day ahead and warmed before serving.

We like to eat it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream – or serve warm with whipped cream if desired. This Toll House Pie also freezes beautifully: just bake, cool and freeze. I wrap the pie well with foil then place in a freezer bag.

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

This chocolate chip cookie pie recipe is from my dear friend, Martha. Martha taught me how to tie my shoes and make fancy chocolate dipped candies. She took me peach-picking and fishing – so many good memories!  This pie is as wonderful and sweet as she was!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

I typically purchase a pre-made pie crust because it is so convenient, but if you would like to make a homemade pie crust, Ina Garten (my go-to chef) will show you how. My sister-in-law also makes a killer pie crust from her Grandmother’s Pie Crust Recipe. She uses it for her Peach Pie.

You can save the recipe below. First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. The ingredients for the filling are simple: butter; eggs; 1/2 cup each of flour, granulated sugar, and brown sugar; and most importantly, chocolate chips! We call it Toll House pie after the Nestle Toll House brand chips, but any semi-sweet morsels work great.

To prepare the filling, first, melt the butter and then set it aside. Then beat your eggs with a whisk until they start to get a little foamy. I look for a few bubbles to start forming.

Now mix in the dry ingredients. Finally, stir in your morsels and butter, and spoon into pie shell. Pop it into the oven and bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean.

The smell of this pie wafting through the house will drive you bonkers – so good! You can cool on a wire rack if desired, or serve it up warm with whipped or ice cream.

This is such a simple chocolate chip pie and I am always asked for the recipe! Martha would be so pleased…

The video will show you just how quick and easy it is to make. This is also the dessert I make when I take dinner to a sick friend, and the pie I send to school to help the kids celebrate National Pi Day on March 14th. You really can’t go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie pie, which is why it’s one of my favorite recipes.

Did you try it? Leave a comment and share your thoughts, questions, and how it turned out! And let me know if you’ve experimented with mixing in peanut butter chips, butterscotch, or other twists on this recipe!

    I love love love this stuff, but I never get it to cook properly. It is always gooey & not cooked enough. Any suggestions???

      Do you cover the edges of your pie crust with aluminum foil strips for most of the baking time? This will keep the crust from getting too dark while the center of the pie bakes through.

      Leslie, this is a great tip!

      Diane, it does need to bake the full hour. Try tenting the last 20 minutes to keep the crust from getting too brown before it is done.

    Hi, this recipe looks delicious and easy to make. I do however have a question: since here in Switzerland we don’t have the same pie crust as you use, could you tell me the diameter of your? Is it maybe a 22cm? Thank you in advance! 😉
    • John D Stigall
      Thursday, March 15th, 2018
      9" diameter is the American pie standard apparently, so yes 22.8 cm.

    Tried this recipe and followed all of the instructions. Baked for an hour and it came out very runny still so I placed it back in the oven for another 10 minutes like suggested and the same result. The edges of the pie cooked completely but the center and most of the pie did not cook fully. Any suggestions?
    • Sunday, August 2nd, 2015
      Hi Tiffany, make sure your oven temperature is correct. The pie sorta puffs up and gets golden brown. I should set in the center but sometimes can be soft, but should hold a pie shape for sure. Make sure you beat the eggs until foamy. That might help. So sorry I do hope you give it another go. I make this ALL the time so easy and delicious.

    This is one of my favorites but because I changed my eating style I had to tweak this one. Whole wheat flour, coconut sugar and coconut oil and it worked out amazing. I even added granola YUM!
    • Cindy
      Monday, June 12th, 2017
      I am so glad to know that Tamira! I am going to try to make it with gluten free flour and put it in a gluten free crust.

    I have been making this pie for about 10 years. In response to Sandy and Mellie, yes bake it before freezing. You can defrost the pie either by leaving it at room temperature for a couple hours, or by placing it in the refrigerator the night before serving. It is delicious! I also make this with peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips, and it is amazing!
    • Cindy
      Monday, June 12th, 2017
      Patti, I never thought about using peanut butter chips, YUM! A mixture of the two would be great.

    Afer this pie had been frozen should it be defrosted in the fridge or countertp, assuming it is baked before being frozen? Thank you for the recipe. I am excited to make it!

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe! Can you tell me how I would defrost this pie after its been frozen? Make ahead freezer foods/desserts help me out a lot in my busy household, especially now that school has started back again.

    Thanks again!

    Made this for a party and it was gone in minutes! I did use the Graham cracker crust instead of pie crust and I accidentally bought Hershey semi sweet chocolate melts instead of chips. It was delicious!

    I will be making this recipe for sure.....not only does it look delicious and like something my whole family would enjoy, but it sounds super easy and could be assembled in no time......also, I, usually have the needed ingredients on hand. I call that a winner winner.....chocolate chip cookie pie for dinner
  28. Wednesday, August 6th, 2014
    I was wondering the same thing, Caitlyn. Is it a crust on top or is that just how it bakes up? It *looks* like pie crust, but you never know.
    • Thursday, August 7th, 2014
      That is naturally how it bakes up. Thanks!
    • Sunday, June 12th, 2016
      Amanda, it just baked up that way. Only a crust on the bottom is needed.
  29. Caitlyn
    Saturday, March 2nd, 2013
    The picture has left me kind of confused- did you place a pie crust on top as well? It doesn't say so in the recipe but maybe I missed something ?
    • Sunday, June 12th, 2016
      Only one crust is needed. Bake the mixture in the pie crust.

    Have been making this pie for over a decade now. My 11 year old son loves to help make it. However we ALWAYS use a deep dish crust, so I don't know why this post says not to use one ... ??? We have used both semi-sweet chocolate and milk chocolate before, but semi-sweet is better. On occasion I add pecans, too.
    • Sunday, June 12th, 2016
      I always use a regular pie crust and it fills it perfectly. For me the deep dish is too big.
    • Cindy Hopper
      Thursday, July 18th, 2019
      Karen for me a deep dish pie shell is too big. The mixture fits perfectly in a regular sized pie shell. I wonder if our pie plates are different sizes.

    Just a quick, but HUGE, note of thanks for this winner of a recipe. Since you originally posted it, I've made it five times and it's truly become my go-to dessert this summer. It couldn't be easier (my hubs timed me and I had it in the oven in ten minutes) and it's a HUGE crowd pleaser. In fact, in an effort to quell my junk-food-guilt, I make it with white whole wheat flour and use a whole wheat pie shell from Whole Foods. I would, seriously, never know. Only think is that I typically make about ten minutes longer than recommended. THANK YOU!!!

    Oh, this looks yummy, and the idea of right out of the oven ... even better! I'm thinking a scoop of ice cream on top, perhaps? if we're going to be decadent might as well go all the way. And I wonder too about a graham cracker or chocolate crust,? I'm not fond of pie crust, so I may try one of those alternatives. (And I'll stop now, as I'm trying to type this without my glasses on ... LOL)

    Thank you so much for posting such a delicious and easy dessert. We had my 6 year old son's family b-day party tonight, and he doesn't really like cake. So I offered to make this for him. He jumped at it, and I am so glad he did. YUM!!!!!

    There was 9 of us and we all loved it. I have been asked to make it again for Memorial Day BBQ.

    THANK YOU!
