Classic Chocolate Chip Pie

I have loved chocolate chip cookies since birth. My mom used to bake a batch almost every other day when I was a kid. I even had the recipe memorized at 5 years old, that’s impressive people. She stopped doing that now…it’s very sad. {Here’s her go to recipe though, in case you need a batch!} Therefore, chocolate chip cookies are a major comfort food for me & I’ll eat the whole batch myself so I don’t make them too terribly often anymore.

But a few weeks ago, I found myself yearning for them. I wanted to be more grown up though, so I put them in a pie. That makes them fancy right? I think so. Anything thrown in a pie is automatically fancier!

I’ve had the world’s best chocolate chip pie at Royer’s Cafe in Roundtop, TX. So I went to search online & found the “recipe” except I tried it & it doesn’t seem to be the same at all. I also looked up the traditional Tollhouse Cookie Pie. So this recipe is my personal tasting perfecting of the two. I like lots of sweet & chocolate chips & a little crunchy. Yes, I know it’s January 5 & most everyone is still on a “diet,” but it’s about time for a cheat day right??

The leftovers are delish too. I left mine in the fridge for weeks. Just warm a piece up & plop on a big ‘ole scoop of ice cream. OMG y’all. It’s good.
