Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

I like pie, but I am really picky about what pie I will eat. No fruit, no meringue, and the crust, well it just can't be brown. High maintenance?... Just when it comes to pie crust. There are certain things that once you make them homemade, you can't go back to store bought. One of those things is pie crust. I forgot to take pictures while making my crust so here's a recipe: Pie crust can be complicated and frustrating so don't get short tempered, especially if it is your first attempt at pie crust. Now for the filling. O. My. Word. This thing is amazing and completely changed my view on pie. It's just like a gooey cookie cake with pie crust. If you like pie, you should make this. If you don't like pie, you should make this. Trust. It's worth it. Here's what you need for the filling
Butter, flour, eggs, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, pecans, and chocolate chips. In the bowl of a mixer, beat the eggs until foamy
Add the sugar, brown sugar, and flour
Mix those ingredients together until well combined. Add the butter
Beat that in on medium speed until the mixture is smooth. Lastly, add the pecans, chocolate chips, and vanilla
Fold all of that in
Pour the finished filling into a prepared and unbaked pie shell
(Don't judge my crust, I know it's not cute.) Now put the pie in the oven and bake! About halfway through baking you may need to line the crust with foil to keep from browning. Or you can set a piece of foil over the whole pie because sometimes the filling will get browned
I found this recipe at Please give this website a visit to see the inside because I didn't get to take a picture of the inside. Here's the link to Bakerella's cookie pie:…-oh-my/

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
1 unbaked pie crust (homemade or store-bought)
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, soft
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Roll out pie crust and shape in a 9 inch round pie pan. In a bowl of a mixer, beat eggs until foamy. Add flour and both sugars until combined. Beat in soft butter on medium speed until smooth. Fold in vanilla, chocolate chips, and pecans. Pour the finished filling into the prepared and unbaked pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes. (Check about half way through baking and cover with foil if necessary.) Let sit at least 20 minutes after baking. Serve warm or at room temp. and with ice cream if it floats your boat :)
