Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie… Oh My!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

There’s nothing like a good chocolate chip cookie… unless of course, if it’s super-sized and more than an inch thick. So when I found this recipe from my aunt’s Nestle Classic Recipes Cookbook a while back, I knew it was a must-make. Serve it warm, with ice cream, with syrup… and with caution… because you’ll definitely want another slice.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie… oh my!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell*
2 large 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
1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped pecans
Serve with ice cream (optional)

  • Preheat oven 325 degrees F.
  • Beat eggs in large mixer bowl on high until foamy.
  • Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter.
  • Stir in morsels and nuts and spoon into pie shell.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm.

Recipe from Nestle Classic Recipes, 2003
* If using frozen pie shell, use deep dish style and thaw completely. Bake on baking sheet and increase baking time slightly.

Chocolate, nuts, butter, brown sugar. I love you.

Just doing my duty. Can’t have enough brown sugar, you know.

Niffer said...

I couldn’t resist and tried out this recipe tonight, and while tasty it did not turn out as expected. The chocolate chips all sank to the bottom and the texture was doughy as if it wasn’t completely baked and a little greasy. It tastes great but the texture is a little off-putting. I did use a frozen pie shell but totally defrosted it before hand and did bake it longer but maybe it needed even longer yet? Any suggestions?

September 22, 2008 05:39 AM
Bakerella said...

niffer – If you look at my pics, you can see that some of the chips also sank. The texture wasn’t too doughy though. This pie also hardens if you leave it out and tastes like a giant choc chip cookie. So try it that way too. If your butter was melted and not softened, then that may have accounted for a little extra doughyness.

Katie said...

I made this several times already – each time it is like heaven all over again. Also, did try it with the graham cracker crust – delish! And tried it with the mini graham cracker pie crusts – even better! I am even thinking of doing the minis as a baby shower favor – so each lady can have a “sweetie pie” of her own!

Thanks so much for the recipe!

I like that idea Katie. But you know, I like things mini.

beantown baker said...

I’m thinking about making this tomorrow. I want to try to make mini pies though. Would a muffin tin work for that?

November 14, 2008 09:50 PM
Bakerella said...

it should. You may need to adjust baking time. Also they make mini frozen pie shells that would work if you didn’t have time to press in all those tins with pie dough.

My kids sent me this link and said you must make it for us. Well, I did. Good thing I got two pie shells, cause I’m making another to go with us to Thanksgiving at my parents.

It a house full of choc-a-holics, this did them in.

Yeah I do the cooking, what of it!

Melissa said...

So I should have read the posts. I melted the butter to get an exact measurement and my first pie came out kind of watery. I’m hoping by putting it into the fridge for several hours or overnight that it will be fine. I made another pie, I bought 2 pie crusts, and that one I made sure the eggs were as foamy as they can be and I also just let the butter sit room temp for like 30 minutes to get it soft but not too soft. I think it will come out good. I will post how it comes out. Thanks for the recipe though, super easy!

December 27, 2008 09:47 PM

Melissa – I think you’ll have better luck this time. I hope so anyway!

I’m speechless. That chocolate cookie pie is to die for! Thats “nam nam” (yummi) as we say in Norway.

By the way: I’ve been a true fan of your blog since the day I saw you on the oprah show! Love it, keep up the good work.

Made this tonight after seeing it yesterday as your Featured Sweet….SO SO YUMMY! My hubby loved it.

You have totally inspired me. This was actually the first pie I have ever made….and this weekend I made your Mini Pancake Muffins. Next I want to try Pops!!

I stumbled across your site by chance a few weeks ago and I have to say…….I Love Love Love your site!!!

Bakerella!!! Thank you, thank you. I had this same pie at Click’s in Pawnee, OK and let me tell you, I about swooned. I’ve looked for the recipe and couldn’t find it. You have saved the day! (But not my waistline. Oh heck, I’m pregnant, I don’t HAVE a waistline!) YAY for gooey, chocolatey goodness!

I tried this recipe last night and it was AWESOME! It was actually my first homemade pie too. My daughter was upset when she found out it had pecans in it after she agreed to help make it(she hates pecans), she said she was going to pick all of them out. You know what? She didn’t pick out a single one, she loved it! Thank you for sharing all of these wonderful recipes. I can’t wait to try more :)

(FYI, this comment ran really long — sorry! ^_^)

Hello there! First off I have to tell you that I found your site a few weeks ago, and am totally inspired. When talking to my husband I probably refer to you as some sort of baking deity.

I found this post Saturday night since it’s the featured sweet, and after oggling the recipe for a minute I realized I had all the ingredients! I had the perfect reason to make it on Sunday because we needed desert for a potluck dinner, and it pie turned out great!

Everyone loved it & I was very pleased. I took some pictures before we left the house, which is good because there was nothing to take pictures of when we got home.

Here are a few notes about how I made mine:

~ I used a fork to beat the eggs because I haven’t got a mixing bowl, and was just as ruthless as I could be — when I stopped to rest my arm, I realized there was foam on the eggs so I called it good enough.

~ I had forgotten to put the butter out to soften so I microwaved it (all 3/4 C) for 20 seconds, then mashed it up with a fork to mix the bit that had melted in with the rest.

~ We’re at a pretty high elevation so sometimes have to cook things longer, but have a wonky oven & sometimes have to cook them for less time, so I just watched the pie to see how it was doing. I could’ve taken it out at 50 minutes, but left it in until 55. It was a little darken than I’d have liked but wasn’t too done, and no liquid in the middle.

What I’m REALLY excited to do is try it with other things besides chocolate chips! I want to make it with M&Ms for colorful, seasonal variations, and also think it could be tasty with white chocolate chips, or butterscotch chips, or peanut butter chips. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!

And, lastly, one of the pictures I took:

hope the links work…i used walnuts because i had no pecans, and i made a shortbread type of pie crust because i cannot make real pie crust to save my life
i’m pretty proud of myself ;)

Oh.My.Goodness. I was looking at the Pumpkin Pie Bites when I saw your photo of this pie in the “Featured Sweets” box. My mouse was drawn like a magnet as I said, “What the h*** is that chocolatey gooey goodness??”

I will make it, but I’m making myself wait until the next party so I have many, many people to share it with. :) In the meantime, I’d love to link to this on my blog, with that ooey, gooey photo (and credit, of course) if it’s OK with you. I know with that photo, people won’t be able to stop themselves from coming over here. :)

so i just baked this last night after putting it off for a while. i made the addition of cutting reese’s mini cups in half and studding the edges of the pie with them before baking, best decision ever.

I’ve got this in the oven right now! I hope it turns out ok. I sort of over-softened the butter in the microwave (teehee!). I left the 1 and half sticks in the Land O Lakes box and threw it in the microwave on defrost. I poured what I could into the mixer from the box!! I thought about wringing it out, but didn’t quite go that far! LOL!! I’m sure we’ll still eat it!! Chocolate syrup will cure whatever happens to it, right?

Bakerella, I’ve made quite a few of your recipes but I have to tell you, I made this pie and it was gone in exactly 18 hours! See, there’s only two people in my house who have a sweet tooth (and I’m not really one of them- I just love to bake), but this pie was heaven. OMG I think this was the most satisfying dessert I’ve ever made! I want to thank you for sharing it with us; my chocolate devouring family will love you forever!

P.S- For those of you who haven’t made this pie yet, DROP EVERYTHING, RUN TO YOUR KITCHEN, AND BAKE THIS PIE RIGHT NOW! And for those people who are having trouble with soupy pies, I increased my baking temperature to 350 F and let it set for a few hours. It turned out absolutely perfect!

March 5, 2010 12:58 PM
Leelee said...

Could have used another 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and I wish I would have coated them in flour because mine all sank to the bottom of the pie. I also added about a tsp of vanilla to my pie. So yum :)

Filomena said...

I found the pie shell wasn’t deep enough for this recipe – and all standard shells are the correct depth, my pie rose and exploded over the shell so next time around I split it into two pans but I think I need to cut down on the cooking time as it seemed a little dry.

I planned to try it in individual cups as well, glad to hear it works. What cooking time do you think they require?

May 6, 2010 04:27 PM

I am in the middle of baking this delicious confection and Ive been reading through some of the comments and just wanted to add my “2cents” , someone mentioned their chocolate chips sinking to the bottom of the pie, but if you toss them around in a little flour before you put them into the batter it prevents them from sinking

- happy baking & I love this blog !

I made this last week and sadly it did not turn out! :( Any tips/suggestions for me Bakerella? I left out the pecans. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly (except maybe my eggs really weren’t ‘foamy’ enough? I whisked them by hand with a fork). My pie ended up much darker than yours on top, and the outer edge of the crust was almost burnt. Should I adjust the temp or cooking time? I was so excited for this pie – my first pie attempt ever! – your pictures looks sooooo delicious and it just fell flat. :( I want to try again and get it right!
