This Chocolate Chip Pie recipe makes a gooey, rich, buttery pie filled with chocolate that’s such a treat to eat. Plus, it’s easy to make!
Tasting some foods for the first time is a revelation. Chocolate Chip Pie was like that for me. I wasn’t a big fan of pies (other than pumpkin pie) as a girl, so to find a pie that tasted like a wonderful, chocolatey cookie was thrilling.
We were at a little cafe on a town green in Connecticut (I think it was was Guilford, but I could be mistaken), sitting in a cozy booth when I ordered it for the first time at the suggestion of a waitress. From that first bite of warm Chocolate Chip Pie served with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream, I was sold.
With Pi Day approaching in the coming week (that’s March 14, named for the mathematical term that represents the number often abbreviated to 3.14), it seemed like the perfect time to share my recipe for Chocolate Chip Pie. It’s like the rich, chocolatey, soft, gooey brethren of a classic chocolate chip cookie.
This recipe starts with similar ingredients to the ones you’d use in a cookie — flour, sugars, butter, oil, an egg, chocolate chips and the like. You’ll also need a graham cookie pie shell (or a vanilla wafer one).
You’ll notice that there’s no leavening agent in the recipe though (such as baking powder or baking soda). That’s because this isn’t actually a cookie and thus doesn’t need that.
The batter for the Chocolate Chip Pie is mixed up in a single bowl. It’s super easy and can be done completely by hand. Add the chocolate chips last, stirring them in.
Then pour the batter into the pie shell and bake. I always put my pie shell on a baking sheet so that it’s easy to get in and out of the oven. I highly recommend it.
Let the Chocolate Chip Pie cool down for a bit before you dig in. Then enjoy. It’s great with or without ice cream.
