What Ingredients do I need to make Tollhouse Cookie Pie?
Let’s start by gathering the ingredients we need to make Toll House Cookie Pie. In Chef Speak this is called the “Mise en Place” which translates to “Everything in its Place”.
Not only does setting your ingredients up ahead of time speed up the cooking process, it also helps ensure you have everything you need to make the dish.
This is one of my favorite chocolate chip dessets along with my insanely delicious triple chocolate brownies and my chocolate chip cheesecake bars.
Do I have to use walnuts in the cookie pie?
No, you do not. You can use pecans instead of walnuts or you can leave the walnuts out and add another type of chip. If you do omit the nuts completey add and additional one-quarter cup of flour to the mix, bringing the flour total to one cup.
The nuts do add stabilty to the toll house cookie pie, and if you leave them out you will definitley need to chill it to let it set up.
How do I make a sweet pastry pie crust?
- Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to the bowl of a food processor.
- Pulse the ingredients 3 times to mix.
- Add the very cold butter pieces to the flour mixture.
- Pulse at one-second intervals until the butter is mixed in.
- Add the egg to flour butter mixture.
- Pulse the mixture until the dough forms a ball on the blade of the processor
- Turn the dough out of the food processor onto a floured surface, and carefully remove the blade.
- Flatten the dough into a disc. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill for 15-20 minutes.
- Roll out pie dough and place it into your pie baking pan.Refrigerate until needed.
How do I make a tollhouse cookie pie?
- Add the eggs to the bowl of your stand mixer or a large mixing bowl.
- Whip the eggs for 3 minutes until foamy.
- Add the brown sugar and white sugar to the eggs.
- Mix the sugars into the egg mixture.
- Add the room temperature butter to the mixture.
- Mix the butter into the mixture until very well blended.
- Add the flour to the mixing bowl.
- Mix the flour into the mixture using the beater bar of the mixer. Mix just until incorporated.
- Add the walnuts and chocolate chips to the batter.
- Mix just enough to blend in the chips and nuts.
- Pour the batter into the pie shell. Smooth the filling with a rubber spatula.
- Bake for 50-55 minutes or until firm in the center. *Don’t worry it will look like it is getting too dark, its just the top crisping up. If you prefer a lighter top, cover it with foil when it begins to darken.
When finished baking, let the pie cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack (or for as long as you can wait) and top with ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
I promise not to tell if you sample a little of the chocolate chip cookie dough, the creamy richness of a brown sugar base makes it’s OMG delicious.
I like using semi-sweet chocolate chips, but feel free to use your favorite chip or combination of chocolate chips.

Yes, it should. It’s okay to let it sit out to come to room temperature before serving, but keep it refrigerated to maintain its freshness when not being served.
What size of pie plate was used? I had a hard time getting the crust into my 9″ plate without being too thin and the cookie batter didn’t seem to be enough.

I used a standard 9 inch pie pan, was yours a deep dish pie pan? I have a few of those and they would definitely come up short.
