Pie Crust Options
This pie tastes best with a homemade buttery pie crust. This All Butter Pie Crust or Cream Cheese Pie Crust (my preferred one) is perfect here. If you like things a little sweet, you can bake it in this Pâte Sucrée.
Steps to Make It
If you are making a homemade pie crust, I suggest making it ahead of time, so the gluten has time to relax. Check out the recipe for the pie crust for more information. Because this pie is baked at a low temperature, the pie crust must be blind baked before you cook the filling.
Once you have your pie crust blind baked, you can make the filling in an electric mixer. Making the filling is just like making a chocolate chip cookie:
First, you'll cream together the butter, sugars and vanilla until very light and fluffy. This takes about 5 minutes to achieve, so don't be tempted to shorten this process.
Then, add the eggs, one a time, and beat until fully combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl in between.
Next, add in the dry ingredients and slowly mix together either on a low speed or by hand.
At this point, all that is left to do is add in the walnuts and chocolate chips. However, before you do that, you are going to need to toss them in a bowl with a little flour. Doing this helps prevent them from completely sinking into the batter and just baking in at the bottom. Though it's not that big of deal if that does happen... it all tastes the same!
Finally, transfer the batter to the prepared pie crust, top with additional chocolate chips and or nuts, if desired, and bake. The pie is going to puff up significantly during baking. It will collapse a bit after cooling, which just means the perfect space for putting a big scoop of ice cream!
If you like under-baked cookies...
So if you are in the camp of people who like to under-bake cookies, you'll probably want to under-bake this pie just a little bit.
If you bake this pie fully, as the recipe instructions say, the cookie will be fully set, without much gooey filling. If you prefer to under-bake it just slightly (but so it is still at the proper and safe temperature to eat) bake it until about 45-50 minutes. The pie should be very puffy all over, and feel mostly set in the center if you touch it. The internal temperature should be above 180º degrees.
During testing, some people preferred it slightly under-baked, while others preferred it fully cooked. So it's totally a matter of personal choice.
How to Serve It
This Tollhouse cookie pie is pretty amazing served slightly warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. The combination together is perfect! I must advise you that the pie can't be sliced into right away after baking; it does need to cool for at least an hour before slicing. The sooner you slice it, the more gooey it will be.
This pie should be kept covered at room temperature for up to 2 days. To rewarm the, place in a 350ºF oven for 15 minutes or so.
