  Do you like pie? Do you like chocolate? Do you like chocolate chip cookies? Look no further! I have the pie recipe for you! Pie seems to be the dessert of choice for Thanksgiving, but I’m one of those odd birds that doesn’t care for pumpkin pie. This is my kind of pie though! You get the wonderful flakyness of a pie shell with a filling that tastes like the best chocolate chip cookie. Yummmm!

Hopefully I don’t get disowned for sharing this recipe! I’m not sure exactly where it originated, but when I first married my husband he told me that I HAD to learn to make this pie. My mother-in-law actually gave me several recipes for my husband’s favorite foods at my bridal shower. Of course, the recipe for this pie was included!

So from somewhere in Missouri, I bring you…

Platte County Pie

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 – 9 inch unbaked pie shell
  • Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Add flour and sugar and continue beating two minutes. Add vanilla, butter, nuts & chocolate chips. Pour into pie shell. Bake 60 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream.

Ahhh! Chocolatey, nutty goodness with pastry shell!!!!
