Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie has all of the classic flavors of your favorite cookie in a warm, dense, fudgy cookie pie! So good!

Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie


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


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!

Take my word for it – you’ve got to try this pie!

Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 55 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 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
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional but highly recommended, for serving)


  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.

    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!

      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?

    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!

    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! 🙂

  • Kim Beaulieu wrote:

    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.

    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 :)))

  • Heather / girlichef wrote:

    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.

      Thanks Heather!

    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 🙂

    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!).

      Thanks Kim!

    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!

      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.
