PIN THIS RECIPE NOW!

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.

PIN THIS RECIPE NOW!

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!

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shell
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a deep dish pie plate with the unbaked pie crust, crimping the edges. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs on high speed until light and foamy. Add the flour and both sugars to the bowl and mix again until combined. Then add the softened butter and mix one more time until completely mixed.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts and mix until the chocolate and nuts are evenly mixed throughout the batter. Spoon the batter into the prepared pie crust.
  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 cream.

    Any suggestions on how to make this without the nuts?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Danielle – You can just leave them out. The texture of the pie will be more fudgy and dense but it should still be delicious!

  • Katie Ellis wrote:

    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?! ;))

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Katie – This pie can definitely be baked ahead of time. You can reheat it in the oven for a bit or we’ve also warmed up some slices of pie in the microwave (just enough to warm it but not so much that it starts to melt or over-bake). Hope that helps!

      • Katie Ellis wrote:

        Great idea!! Thank you so very much!! Im dead set on making this pie! 🙂

          You’re very welcome Katie! (I predict you and your guests will love it!) 🙂

    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.

    • Martha wrote:

      Your brownies recipe sounds wonderful Evie! Thanks for writing to us today!

  • Katie wrote:

    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!

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Katie – I would suggest defrosting the crust but no need to bake it ahead of time. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

  • Amy S wrote:

    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!

    • Martha wrote:

      Thanks! Hope you all enjoy the pie Amy! Making it without the nuts should still be delicious!

    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?

    • Martha wrote:

      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!

    • Andrea wrote:

      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 🙁

      • Martha wrote:

        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?

    • Kristen wrote:

      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!

      • Martha wrote:

        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!

        • Jess wrote:

          I am having the same problem with melted butter right now. I poked holes in several places and put back in the oven for another ten minutes and it seemed a little more solid after that. I don’t know if the top being cooked makes a sort of shell that keeps moisture from escaping? I had butter seeping under the crust and spilling out of the pan. I made this pie once before and had no problems.

          • Martha wrote:

            Thanks for letting us know Jess…are you possibly using a different brand of butter than before? I’m so puzzled why a few of our readers are having issues like yours.

    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”?

    • Martha wrote:

      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!

    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.

      I think you’ll love this pie Liz!

  • Jodi wrote:

    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!!

    • Martha wrote:

      Thanks Jodi! I hope our version is as delicious at the version served at your mom’s favorite restaurant!

  • MJ wrote:

    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 🙂

      We love it too MJ! Thanks for writing to us today!

  • Kelly Wilson wrote:

    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!

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Kelly – I’ve only made it with the nuts but the recipe should still work fine if you leave the nuts out.

  • amy wrote:

    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?

    • Martha wrote:

      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!

      • amy wrote:

        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!

        • Martha wrote:

          I hope it works out for you Amy!

          • Elisha Saylor wrote:

            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??

          • Martha wrote:

            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.

      • Ava wrote:

        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.

    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!

    • Martha wrote:

      Wow Kim! I hope the recipe is as good as you remembered – and I hope your mom is doing OK now too!

  • Robyn wrote:

    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?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Robyn – We haven’t tried freezing it ourselves so I can’t say for sure – but I’d probably trying baking it before freezing it. Let us know how it comes out!

      • Laura Lee wrote:

        Any idea if I could pre mix the dough and then bake it tomorrow?

        • Martha wrote:

          Yes – I would assemble it in the crust right before baking but I think it would be safe to mix the batter the day before.

        • Jessie Shumate wrote:

          Hi Laura, did you try making the dough a day ahead before baking? If so, how’d it turn out?

  • Sherry wrote:

    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

    • Martha wrote:

      Sounds great Sherry! My sister was just telling me about Derby Pie – I think I NEED to try that recipe next! 🙂

  • Laura ~ Raise Your Garden wrote:

    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!

    • Martha wrote:

      Thanks Laura – I definitely think this pie is worthy of a few extra workouts! Thanks for visiting today!

      Thank you. I lost my recipe for the pie. I’ve been searching for the recipe for twenty years.
