The pie quest continues!

When I got my copy of A Passion for Baking by Marcy Goldman recently, it came with a little book, also by Marcy, called Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate. There are several things in it I've been meaning to try and this pie is one of them. And then, as I was perusing other food blogs I saw almost the exact recipe on Bakerella and knew I had to try it. I can't stand it anymore!! It looks too good not to try.

Since the recipe itself calls for a frozen pie crust, I don't feel like I cheated by not making my own. Hey I was just following the recipe! All you do is whisk the batter ingredients together, then fold in the nuts and chocolate chips, pour into the crust, bake and you're done!

It's so good and not nearly as sweet as I thought. But you may want to serve it with some vanilla ice cream as Marcy recommended. Enjoy!

Blondie Chocolate Chip Pie
(recipe by Marcy Goldman)

2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1 frozen 9 inch deep dish pie crust

Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs with flour, both sugars, butter and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour filling into pie crust. Place pie on the prepared baking sheet. (Do this to avoid unfortunate mishaps like these). Bake for 1 hour. Serve with ice cream and hot fudge sauce if desired.

Hmm, that reminds me of "Waitress." That movie is so cute, she's always making up random pies. Looks tasty!
