Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie

Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie - All of the classic flavors of Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies in a warm, dense, fudgy cookie pie! So good!

Growing up, my family’s go-to recipe anytime we made chocolate chip cookies was the classic, original Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe found on the back of every package of Nestle’s semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

I’ve tried making many other chocolate chip cookie recipes over the years, and while all of them are delicious (really – how could a chocolate chip cookie NOT be delicious?) the Toll House recipe is still my favorite!

So given how much I love those classic chocolate chip cookies, I never thought it could be improved upon. That is – until – I tried today’s recipe for a Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie!

Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie - All of the classic flavors of Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies in a warm, dense, fudgy cookie pie! So good!

This Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie is incredible! It has the classic flavors – a sweet, buttery batter with chocolate chips and walnuts – but in pie form!

 

As this Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie bakes, it forms almost a crackly top – and when you bite into your slice it’s dense and soft and fudgy with crunch from the chopped walnuts. The first time I made this pie – my husband Jack’s eyes rolled into the back of his head as he took his first bite – it is that good!

  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a sharp knife inserted halfway between the edge and the center of the pie comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for about 30 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice.

  1. I rarely indulge in desserts…but when I do, it’s got to be a chocolate chip cookie! And I too love the Toll House cookie recipes. (I could tell you a few stories on how to bomb a chocolate chip cookie as I’m not much of a baker since I have so little practice but I’ll omit those!…..forget the baking powder or soda = bad though) This chocolate chip pie looks marvelous, a dessert I’m willing to do one of those circa 1980’s Billy Blanks workout VHS tapes for! Ha. Totally worth the workout. And that vanilla ice on top (I think I might go for vanilla bean)! looks luscious. Have a great week!

  2. Our go-to recipe is always the Toll House! Loving that you turned the classic cookie into a pie (with a giant dollop of ice cream on top. WIN!).

  3. YES! Toll House cookies are the only ones I make and I can’t wait to make this pie!

  4. I’ve always loved the Toll House chocolate chip cookies. I agree that it’s the ultimate go-to recipe for chocolate chips cookies. So, if this pie has all those classic flavors, it has to be outstanding! I know another hubby who’s going to love this one 🙂

  6. Oh my gosh , yes, I have to agree 100% – this is a scrumptious pie! I feel the same way about the cookies, too; they were the chocolate chip cookies I grew up on, and it’s hard to beat them.

  7. What a gorgeous pie! I made a pie like this a while back, and that was the last time…because it was dangerous!!! Your pie slice is calling out my name…so tempting :)))

  8. I saw this somewhere earlier today. This is yours?! Oh my. I’m not supposed to be eating grains, dairy or sugar at the moment and this pie is killing me. I need an excuse to make it and then just try a bite!

  11. I want to face plant right into that pie. That’s totally normal right?

  12. That looks incredible! I’ve always loved Tollhouse Cookies, and to have it in pie form would be amazing!

    • Yes – Nicky – Toll House cookies are a popular chocolate chip cookie recipe from the New England region of the United States. A must try! Thanks for visiting today!

  14. I want some of this right now! Beautiful pictures!

  15. I need my fork now. I want to dive into this pie!

  16. This is so freaking amazing I can barely take it. I want to run right into my kitchen to make it. I’m a big fan of the toll house recipe too. Have you ever seen the friends episode where Phoebe makes cookies then Monica has to try to make them from tasting them because the recipe was lost? Every time I hear Phoebe say the name in french I crack up.

  17. I make a pie exactly like this but without brown sugar…..this is called Derby Pie….I live just in Louisville Ky the home of the Kentucky Derby and this is a very common recipe, especially here on the first Saturday in May every year. I quadruple the recipe and give them to others or freeze them. I love it with whipped topping

  18. I remember a pie like this growing up….it was one of my very favorite things. I can’t believe I haven’t ever made one myself!

  19. I’m wondering if this pie can be frozen? If so, should I prepare it and freeze it before I cook it or cook it, cool it and then freeze it?

  20. I’m so glad you created this and shared it on Pinterest. When I was 6 my mom was in a really bad car accident and someone from church made this for my family while she was recovering at the hospital. At the time it was the most amazing dessert I’d ever had and have wondered my whole life how the made it and now I can give it a go myself. Really excited!

  21. I have made this pie for years, and it is always a hit!

  22. I love this pie! My only problem is, everytime I make it, the chocolate chips all sink to the bottom. Do you know what I am doing wrong?

    • Hi Amy – I’ve seen versions of this recipe where it called for melted butter instead of the softened butter – and the ones with melted butter had lots of comments where people complained of the chips sinking to the bottom. We didn’t have that issue in our pie – so I’d suggest using softened butter and you could also lightly coat the chocolate chips with some flour before mixing them in. Hope that works!

      • Thanks! I think you right- the butter was melted. Now, I can’t wait to make your exact recipe- not melting the butter- and see what happens. Thank you so much!

        • I hope it works out for you Amy!

          • Elisha Saylor :

            I just made this pie and I used softened butter not melted, I left it in for the full 60 minutes, and I feel like the butter is just oozing out the top! Is that normal??

          • Hi Elisha – It is a very rich pie but I don’t recall seeing the butter ooze out the top – it should look somewhat crackly on top. I’d suggest letting it cool before you cut into it and see if it firms up.

      • I have tried coating the chocolate chips with flour—which is what Toll House told me to do—but it does not work. I will try it with softened butter rather than melted.

  23. This looks amazing!! Chocolate chip cookies are my #1 weakness!! Have you tried to make this without nuts? Just curious if it would still work if I omit the nuts altogether. Thanks!

  24. Omg this looks so so delicious!!! Want this now!! Pinning 🙂

  25. I have been making this pie, with my mom first and now as a mom, for over 25 years! It is easy, delicious, and everyone requests it. It is the only pie I make on Thanksgiving Day and a small slice with ice cream is the perfect end to a perfect meal 🙂

  26. Perfect timing!! My mom was just saying she has been craving this pie, but her favorite restaurant that made it closed over two years ago. Now I can make it for her for Easter!!

  27. Okay – I’ve made the “one giant” cookie in a skillet but have not done a pie yet! I love it – I can’t imagine ever again swapping cookie sheets in and out of the oven.

  28. This is the same recipe posted on th Nestle’s website and the same recipe I have used for over 25 years. How is this “adapted”?

    • Hi G – you’re right – this fantastic recipe is from Nestle’s website and I’ve linked to it in the post. As bloggers the standard protocol for sharing another site’s recipe is to ‘adapt’ it by rewriting the instructions in our own words based on our experience preparing the recipe and linking to the original source. Hope that helps clarify for you!

  29. My mouth is watering. SO super easy to make as well. Oh I NEED this in my life

  31. YOU SHOW NOTHING BUT THE BEST, THANK YOU SO MUCH,

  32. I’m so sad. I just made this pie, it could for 60+ minutes, the top was brown, and when cut, it wasn’t cooked 🙁 Any suggestions? Does high altitude change anything?

    • Oh – I’m sorry to hear that Rachel! I suppose it is possible that being at a higher altitude could cause issues! (We are in Massachusetts and our recipe mirrors the original Nestle’s recipe.) Here is link to a High Altitude Baking chart from King Arthur Flour – this might be a good reference to keep on hand: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipe/high-altitude-baking.html (And – maybe try microwaving the undercooked pie slice – that will cook it in the middle without browning the top further.) Hope this helps!

    • I had the same issue and I’m not at high altitudes. I double checked ingredients and tried it twice. Each time gets very brown on top then liquidity butter on inside 🙁

      • I’m sorry you had issues Andrea – I’m not sure where things went wrong. Did you melt the butter instead of just softening it before you mixed it in?

    • I had the same issue. The top of the pie got brown but after 60 minutes the inside was still liquid and very oily. I let it cook another 30 minutes more, checking it at 10-minute intervals, but even after 90 minutes it was still liquid. I finally gave up and pulled it out of the oven.

      It wasn’t an altitude problem (I live in Florida at only about 100 feet above sea level). I know our oven temp was accurate too (we’ve calibrated it and we have two separate thermometers inside because I bake often and need the precise temps.)

      I tried microwaving a slice of the pie but unfortunately all it did was start sizzling the chocolate without baking the rest of the ingredients. It’s too bad because the pie looks delicious in your photos and I was so looking forward to tasting it!

      • Oh no Kristen – I wish I knew why a few of you are having issues with the recipe. We actually made it ourselves for a party a few weekends ago and it came out great – as you see it in the photos. I’m very sorry it didn’t work out for you – and I’ve very puzzled by it too!

  33. This looks absolutely delicious & I can’t wait to try it! I think I might try without the nuts though as my kids & I don’t really like nuts. Thanks for sharing!

  34. Hi, if you are making this from a store bought pie crust, does the crust need to be defrosted or baked before cooking pie? Thanks for help!

  35. I have used your chocolates chips and made brownies for years and I love all the new dessert recipes. I do a lot of baking and have the Best Brownies Every recipe that everyone loves. I bake these every year and give to churches to raise money with and bake for the holidays when we have company to serve them with too.

  36. This pie looks amazing!!! I want to serve it for Yhanksgiving, but Im worried about my timing. I want to bake it ahead of time (instead of making it and baking it while family is here), but I want to be able to serve it warm like suggested. How do you suggest I do this?! ;))

  37. Any suggestions on how to make this without the nuts?

  38. Do I use dark or light brown sugar?

  39. Can th chocolate chip pie be made the night before and cooked in the morning?

    • Hi Amy – Instead I would bake it ahead of time and then reheat – for a short time in the microwave or oven. Since this pie is so dense, I’m not sure that chilling it before baking will give you good results. Hope that helps!

  40. Does this recipe call for salted or unsalted butter? I wasn’t sure since there is no salt added. Thanks!

  41. Ive made the pie twice and the chocolate chips have sunk to the bottom both times, I’m not sure why.

    • Hi Devin – I’ve found that if the butter is extremely soft (or melted) the chips fall to the bottom. You want it soft enough to stir in, but not super soft. Alternately, you could try coating the chips with some flour before adding them in – that might work too! Hope that helps!

  42. Any luck freezing it cooked or uncooked? Loved this pie and would love to make extras ready to go.

    • Hi Lisa – We haven’t frozen the pie ourselves – but if you try it, I would probably at least partially bake the pie before freezing. Please let us know how it turns out!

  43. I am using a frozen pie crust. Should i follow the crust instructions of baking that and then bake following yours too? Im afraid the crust might get overcooked. Also can i use pecans instead of walnuts?

    • Hi Jenn – I wouldn’t bake the crust ahead of time (I agree it might get overcooked if you do). I haven’t baked this using a frozen pie crust – so I think I’d suggest thawing it a bit before you add the filling, then bake according to directions. Hope that helps! And yes – feel free to swap in pecans if you’d like.

  44. I’m late to the party, but use a cookie sheet (or something!) under your pie! I forgot to and it overflowed a little 😉

  45. Do you know if you can make this is a regular 9in pie crust and not a deep dish? Just realized I only have the regular! Would it change the baking time?

    • Hi Ashley – It won’t change the baking time. Just try to make the pie crust stand up around the edges if you can and maybe put a cookie sheet underneath just in case it spills over as it bakes. You should be fine!

  46. Wow! Loved this.. Made it last night, but we actually ate it today at work. Go Pi Day!!!!
    I do have a question. The chocolate chips all sunk to the bottom of the pie. Is this normal? Did I do something wrong? It still tasted delicious and i will for sure make it again!

    • Hi Kim – I’ve had some other readers comment about the chips sinking – and I’ve also seen other bloggers who made this recipe using melted butter instead it has done the same. I think it all depends on how soft the butter is when you mix it in! If it’s melted or extremely soft the chips seem to sink (ours was soft but not super soft – just enough to be able to mix it in). Alternately, you could try stirring the chocolate chips in a little bit of all-purpose flour to coat them before adding them to the batter – that might also help!

  47. Made this today for Pi Day, so good! And so easy to put together. I used a frozen pie crust. I just let it sit out on the counter to thaw a bit while I mixed the pie ingredients. My family loved it!

  48. nichola gilbert :

    one cup of flour , what sort of flour ? self raising or plain ?

  49. I see this pie is in a glass pie pan so I would think that u used the ready made pie shells but I was wonder could u use the deep dish pie shells that are already in the tin pans?

    • Hi Lisa – Yes – the ready made pie shells should work fine for this recipe. I’d recommend thawing them a bit before filling and baking. Enjoy!

  50. I’m a pretty avid baker, and while it turned out yummy, it didn’t set up thick like your picture. Any ideas to what I did wrong?

  51. Is it just 1/2 cup flour? I saw a couple other posts with my issue and then one lady asked about what kind of flour and a cup. Maybe a typo? Thanks

  52. I’ve just baked this pie. The recipe looks similar to a choc chip pie my grandmother used to make when I was little. However, as my pie cooled, it became oily. Any suggestions on what I can do next time to avoid that?

  53. Angela Wilson :

    After seeing others’ comments, I decided to take a trial run with this pie a day ahead of our Memorial Day cookout. I followed all directions precisely, even softening the butter over several hours at room temperature. I live in Atlanta, so elevation is not an issue. The top browned, but the inside never cooked. I imagine it’d need another half hour or more, but the top would then be useless. The chocolate chips also sank to the bottom. When someone finds a solution, please share. Thank You.

    • Thanks for letting us know Angela – I’m so puzzled why some of our readers see the same issue and others (including us) do not!

  54. Hi, thank you for posting this! It looks amazing an I can’t wit to try it out over Summer 🙂 Just wondering what kind of pie crust you used or would recommend for this?

  55. If I use store bought refrigerated roll out crust and doubled the recipe could I use a 9×13 pan and make bars to serve more people?

    • I’m not sure Raychel – we’ve never tried doing that. If it were me, I’d probably make two pies instead of trying to make one 9×13-inch pan.

  56. May I have all the toll house recipes please
