I made three pies and one trifle for Thanksgiving. They all turned out just fine, but the Nestle Toll House Pie was definitely the hit of the party. I was expecting the hit to be the trifle....but whatever. :)
I forgot to take any pictures of the food, but here is a photo, recipe and link to the website for the Toll House pie. It's so super easy to make it's ridiculous.
NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Pie
Preparation - 15 min Cooking - 55 min Cooling Time - 15 min cooling Yields - 8
The sweet, creamy richness of a brown sugar base makes this chocolate chip pie a perfect foil for chopped nuts and whipped or ice cream. Serve with strong coffee or tea.
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 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts
Sweetened whipped cream or ice cream (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 325° F.
BEAT eggs in large mixer bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter. Stir in morsels and nuts. Spoon into pie shell.
BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.
* If using frozen pie shell, use deep-dish style, thawed completely. Bake on baking sheet; increase baking time slightly.
**My Notes: This pie is SO SUPER sweet! I made a very lightly sweetened whipped cream and it really helped tone it down. It says the pie serves eight, so that's how I cut it, but since it's so sweet I would cut the slices even smaller next time.
Also, I didn't add the nuts. I thought I was making this for kids (but the adults ended up eating it all) :) so that's why I left them out. The nuts may help cut the sweetness as well.
