I am late posting this,but here is the recipe for the pie I made for Thanksgiving. It is a version of tollhouse pie (some also call it Derby pie). I opted to make a chocolate pie crust, but the traditional flakey pie crust works too.
It is pretty sweet, too sweet for me.. so I have apparently entered the “too sweet. Too salt. Too loud. Too tired” phase of life. Yowsa!
Remember to preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking.
- Ingredients for pie crust (king Arthur flour recipe)
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 10 tbs butter, cut into cubes
- 5 tbs cold water
Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees before baking. In a bowl, combine flour, baking cocoa, and powdered sugar. Using a fork or pastry blender, blend in cubed butter. Mix in water, one tbs at a time. Once well mixed, roll into a ball. Press evenly into prepared 9 inch pie tin. Set aside. Do not bake yet.
- Filling ingredients
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 tbs vanilla
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Directions – blend corn syrup and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Blend in butter and vanilla. Mix in 1 cup chips. Pour batter into unbaked crust. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup chips on top. Bake in preheated oven, 350 degrees for 55 to 75 minutes, until top is relativelt firm. Keep an eye on the pie, as baking times can vary. Cool completley. Store in covered container.
