I don’t know why I’ve waited so long to make this pie. Probably because pie’s not really my thing. But I had an extra ball of pie dough after I made the honey pie (that type of pie is definitely my thing). I loved this a lot more than Larry did. He tends to like fruit pies (apple) and sweets with warm spices.
I can’t resist chocolate chip cookies, and this pie is exactly like a giant chocolate chip cookie. It’s got a chewy middle and the top is a little crackly. I usually don’t put nuts in my chocolate chip cookies, but I don’t mind them – and I like them in this pie. I had to take all of it to work so I wouldn’t eat it all. Use a good quality chocolate if you can – Scharffen Berger chocolate chunks work particularly well. The recipe can be found here.
