The famous cookies, created by accident years ago at a New England inn
called The Toll House, have become a sweet American institution and have
spawned any number of equally chocolate- spangled treats. Naturally the
folks at Nestl6 , who purchased the Toll House name and made it famous,
feel they own the chocolate chip franchise, and among the many variations
on the theme they have developed, this blondie/cookie pie stands out.
*If using frozen pie shell, use deep dish style; thaw completely. Place on
cookie sheet; increase baking time to 70 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In large mixer bowl, beat eggs at high speed 5
minutes, until foamy. Add flour, sugar and brown sugar; beat until well
blended. Blend in melted butter. Stir in NESTLE Toll House semi-sweet
chocolate morsels and walnuts. Pour into pie shell. Bake 1 hour or until
knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean, and top is
golden brown. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

GILDING THE LILY: Despite the long association of walnuts and chocolate
chips, I really prefer this pie when it’s made with pecans.
