Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Tollhouse Pie

.



This pie is a favorite among the chocolate lovers in my house (everyone!). It's a breeze to put together, you want to eat it warm, and so you can make it, bake it, and eat it within just a few hours. We love it served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, and whenever I have served it to company, it's always been a hit! I make mine without nuts because of allergies, but I think it would be fabulous with.


Tollhouse Pie

2 eggs
½ c. flour
½ c. sugar
½ c. brown sugar
1 c. butter, melted and cooled
6 oz. chocolate chips (1 cup)
1 c. chopped walnuts, optional
9-inch unbaked pie shell
whipped cream or ice cream

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add flour, sugar and brown sugar; beat until well blended. Stir in melted butter. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour into pie shell and bake for one hour, until pie is puffed in the center and center is set. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

Oh my gosh! That looks really, really delicious! I think it would make a nice alternative to birthday cake or some other "special occasion" dessert ...

It's definitely a special occasion treat, Sarah -- way to much butter for regular consumption! ;-)

My college boy was home and made a special request. Oh, and my kids almost all choose an alternative to cake for their birthdays -- creme brulee, brownies, lemon meringue pie, pumpkin roll, even pumpkin pie!

Oh dear, do I show this to my kids and risk their making it and my eating it, or do I bookmark it for a later date when I'm not so actively avoiding sugar :}
