Menu Monday

After a busy, but fun weekend {filled with LOTS of college football & a date night to Octoberfest} we invited friends over last night to share a pot of chili, cornbread, and a chocolate chip pie! This little pie is a fast fix, only requiring 7 ingredients and 10 minutes to stir! Baking takes the longest, but it's totally worth it. YOU GOTTA TRY IT :) I can't really describe the deliciousness except to literally IS just like eating a chocolate chip cookie, except in chewy, gooey pie form! Top it off with a generous dollop of Blue Bell Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and you have a crowd pleaser! I make 2 pies when I have groups over to the house and it's always gotten rave reviews. Quick. Simple. Delicious...what's not to love!

Now go get to baking!!

Nestle Chocolate Chip Pie

1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shell*, completely THAWED
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 or walnuts

Serve with ice cream (optional) But not optional if your name is Becky!!!

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

*I recommend using Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Pie Shells, I have found that they turn out the best of all the brands I have tried. Also, be sure to thaw your shell completely prior to baking!
