Toll House Pie

    Posted by  ·  March 16, 2007

    This is the pie I sent to my son’s school for Pi day, March 14th. The middle school was having a celebration and my son requested this pie. It is delicious. It is a recipe from my dear friend, Martha. Martha taught me how to tie my shoes and how to make fancy chocolate dipped candies. She took me peach picking and fishing——so many good memories!
    It is as wonderful and sweet as she was! I hope you enjoy!

    Martha Wareheim’s Toll House Pie

    ½ Cup butter (melted)

    2 eggs

    ½ Cup flour

    ½ Cup sugar

    ½ Cup brown sugar

    1 Cup chocolate chips

    1 regular pie crust- not deep dish

    Preheat oven to 325°. Melt butter then set aside.Beat two eggs in a mixing bowl until foamy(I beat with a whisk just well enough to see a few bubbles).Mix in sugars and flour.Slowly stir in butter and then chocolate chips. Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell. Bake for about 1 hour. This pie freezes beautifully.Serve warm with ice cream. YUMMY! This is such a simple pie and I am always asked for the recipe.

      Just wondering All-purpose or Self Rising Flour? Semi-sweet or Chocolate Chips? Thanks

        Hi Tanya, I use All-purpose flour and semi-sweet chips. It is soooooo good!

      Is the flour all purpose or self rising?

      Hi, Silly (?) question: does it matter if I use regular chocolate chips or the semi-sweet ones? Thanks!

        Hi Cindy, I use semi-sweet chips.. I think that they are the regular chocolate chips. I have used milk chocolate chips before but we prefer it with the semi-sweet ones.

      I made 2 of these today in deep dish pie crusts since that's all I had in the freezer. Lesson learned after the first one so I increased the recipe by half on the second one (3 eggs, 3/4 cup measurements instead of 1/2 cup, etc) and cooked about 10 min longer. Delish!

      This is one of my favorites!!! I first had it at a restaurant about 30 years ago and HAD to find a recipe to make it myself. Once I found it, it has been a family favorite! Thanks for sharing this yummy delight!

      I have been making this pie for about 20 years. It is the best. It needs to be eaten with vanilla ice cream. I also use a oreo cookie crust.

      Hello I just stumbled across this blog and I love it. I made this pie this past weekend. It was great but the only thing was it didn't turn out so Golden brown as yours. It seemed more like just plain chocolate pie. I baked it for about 45 min. It wasn't burned it tasted really good but I am not sure why it looked more choclately than yours did. Please help

      I haven't ever seen teacher appreciation ideas before.
      I will be trying some. I also love the recipes. I will be
      trying the toll house pie among lots of other craft ideas.
      Thanks for inspiring me.

      Sounds yummy in the tummy. I'm going to make it with Splenda Blend for baking and Splenda brown sugar. You only have to use half the amount, and things always taste perfectly fine when I use them. I know it'll still have choc. chips, but at least I'll cut down on a little of the sugar. I'll let you know how it turns out when I make it!

      I have made this pie twice in the past week and everyone loves it! I highly recommend watching the movie Waitress and then making this pie. Thank you so much.

      No, I didn't make two layers. Just mix it up and pour into the pie shell. Sometimes it doesn't look so much like two layers-------maybe it is how foamy you make the eggs (I don't take a lot of time to try to make them foamy or it could be the temperature of the melted butter---I make this pie so quickly that the butter doesn't have long to cool before adding it to the mixture. It always seems to taste the same though. I hope you give it a try! Let me know how it goes!

      sounds great to me !!! it seems like you made 2 layers , one of choclate and one of the basic mixture that what you did ? or do you recommand sparkling some choc chips direct on the unbaked crust before pouring the mixture ... I will sure try it ... I have some leftover vanilla icecream that wounds like the perfect match.

      great picture. thanks for sharing :)
