Better-Than-Nestle Toll House Pie

For those of you who read my site regularly, you know I am not a pie maker. So for me to post a pie recipe, it means this is one damn good pie.

This chocolate chip cookie pie is rich, decadent, and the filling tastes like the center of an under-baked and extremely chocolaty chocolate chip cookie. Gooey perfection.

The batter tastes like the best chocolate chip cookie dough of your life. It’s over the top good. I didn’t even want to bake the chocolate chip pie because eating the batter was so amazing.

It’s an unconventional batter in that you add eggs, flour, sugars, beat everything together, and then add the butter. Normally butter and sugar are beaten together first and once you add the flour, beating only as much as is necessary to incorporate the flour is the way to go but not with this recipe.

What’s in This Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie? 

To make this Nestle Toll House pie, you’ll need: 

  • Eggs
  • All-purpose flour
  • Granulated sugar
  • Light brown sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • Unsalted butter
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Deep-dish pie shell

How to Make Toll House Pie

First, beat the eggs until foamy and then add in the flour, sugars, vanilla, and salt. Next, add in the softened butter and beat creamy and incorporated. Add the chocolate chips in last. 

Turn the chocolate chip pie batter into the pre-made pie shell and bake until a toothpick or knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean. (If you prefer less gooeyness, bake 5 to 10 minutes longer than stated in the recipe card below.) 

Place the chocolate chip cookie pie on wire rack to cool for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.

Can I Use Different Chocolate Chips? 

Yes, you’re welcome to use milk or white chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet, if that’s what you prefer. Or use a mixture of chocolate chips to make this chocolate chip cookie pie! 

Can I Add Other Mix-Ins? 

Yes, although you don’t want to use more than 1 1/4 cups mix-ins total, otherwise your Toll House pie may overflow in the oven. Chopped nuts, dried fruit, butterscotch chips, and chocolate chunks would all be great additions!

Can I Make This Recipe in Advance? 

Yes! Just like regular chocolate chip cookies, this copycat Toll House cookie pie stays fresh for a couple of days. 

If you want to reheat it, I would slice a piece and zap in microwave for a few seconds. I wouldn’t return the whole pie to the oven to reheat as that could potentially dry out the cookie dough. 

Can This Recipe Be Doubled? 

I’m sure it technically could, but if you go that route it’d be easiest to just bake two separate chocolate chip cookie pies.

The pie already takes quite a long time to bake in the oven, and I worry that if you tried to bake it in a 9×13-inch dish the center would take even longer to cook through.

Tips for Making the BEST Toll House Pie

This is an easy Toll House cookie pie recipe and I used frozen pie crust to keep it even easier. If you have a favorite crust recipe and are into making crust, use that. I’m not and with all the chocolaty goodness going on, no one paid much attention to the crust.

I used 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips and the chocolate chip pie is incredibly rich and ultra chocolaty. The chips sunk to the bottom, forming a chocolate layer. You could scale the chips back to 1 cup if you’re not as big of a chocolate fiend as I am.

I added hot fudge at the end, not because the Toll House pie needed any more chocolate but because upon cooling, the domed top cracked slightly around the perimeter. To pretty it up, the hot fudge is a nice touch but not necessary. You could also try ice cream or whipped topping.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

The filling tastes like the center of an underbaked chocolate chip COOKIE!! Easy, rich, decadent, extremely CHOCOLATY, and you can use a frozen pie crust!!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Cooling Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
  • 1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shell (4-cup volume), thawed completely (or substitute with your favorite homemade buttery pie crust)
  • 1/3 cup hot fudge (homemade or store-bought), optional for drizzling

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
    2. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the eggs and beat on medium-high speed until foamy.
    3. Add the flour, sugars, vanilla, salt, and beat on medium speed to incorporate, about 1 to 2 minutes. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
    4. Add the butter and beat on medium-high speed until creamy and incorporated, about 1 to 2 minutes. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
    5. Add the chocolate chips and beat on low speed until just incorporated, about 1 minute.
    6. Turn batter out into pie pie shell, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
    7. Place pie on a baking sheet (insurance against overflow) and bake for about 50 to 52 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean. I baked for 50 minutes and the center was gooey like the center of an underbaked chocolate chip cookie. If you prefer less gooeyness, bake 5 to 10 minutes longer. All ovens, climates, ingredients, etc. vary so use your judgment about how long to bake.
    8. Place pie on wire rack to cool for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving. Don’t slice early or you will have a gooey mess.
    9. Optionally before serving, evenly drizzle with hot fudge.
    10. Alternatively, serve with ice cream or whipped topping.

  1. Hello,I made this tonight. I went with the 1 cup of chocolate chips, but I added pecans the top. It was delicious. Moist and very enjoyable.

  2. I made a test pie for a pie party we are attending this coming Sunday. Wow! It is so easy and delicious! After the pie cooled, I heated the hot fudge in the microwave and poured it on top of the pie, about half the jar. It is so rich! Yum yum yum! They are going to love it!

  3. I just made this pie for my son’s 5th birthday last week, and I have to say it was the BEST! I made two pies because we had invited a lot of kids, but since not many were able to make it do to a freak snowstorm we had a whole pit left over. Instead of the fudge drizzle on top, I actually made a chocolate ganache and poured it over the top to create a smooth surface. It tastes amazing as it is now, but with every serving I have (yes, I am eating the second pie by myself) I keep thinking of yummy variations. Here are my ideas so far:-Instead of ganache or fudge drizzle, pour a layer of chocolate pudding over the top-Instead of ganache or fudge drizzle, make a yummy marshmallow cream fudge and spread that over the top-Cut fresh bananas or strawberries and layer it on top of the cookie layer, then cover with any of the chocolate topping options-Put a layer of marshmallow cream on top of the cookie layer and cover with any of the chocolate topping optionsAny way you look at it, this is definitely a very rich dessert (exactly how I like it!). Everybody, kids and adults, loved it!

  4. I first thought it had a layer of brownie or chocolate on the bottom. Then I read the recipe. Wow! Amazing how the chocolate chips made it look. It sure looks yummy. My husband loves lots of chocolate.

    1. Thank you so much for the compliments I really appreciate it! I try hard to make my photography the best that I can make it. Thank you for noticing 😊

  5. I am confused with the recipe and the picture of final product. The final product looks like brownie on the bottom, and choc chip cookie dough on top. But no where in recipe does it address the brownie layer. Is this recipe that goes with picture, and will my final product look like the picture?

    1. If you make as written, it should turn out like my photos, however everyone’s skills in the kitchen are somewhat different so I cannot promise your photos will look *exactly* like mine. Enjoy!

  6. I made this for my Pi Day (3/14) for Pi(e) Day at my school – I’m a high school math teacher. Man, it was a HUGE hit. Everyone else brought in store-bought pies, but my homemade pie was one of the first to go. I received multiple requests for the recipe. :) Averie, your recipes NEVER disappoint, and they are always so easy. Thank you!

    1. Thanks for trying the recipe and I sure wish I had a high school math teacher like you!! Thanks for the compliments on my recipes – and your students are very lucky to have you!

  7. Hello all,

    I’m thinking about making this for NYE. But I only have a 10in deep dish pie crust pan. Will the inch difference matter? Will the measurements change? Should I just go buy a 9inch crust? Help! Thanks guys.

    1. It can be made in advance and reheated if you desire. I would slice a piece and zap in micro for a few seconds. I wouldn’t return the whole pie to the oven to reheat.

  8. I was thinking of making these in to individual cupcake sizes…any thoughts on how much time to cook them for???

    1. This isn’t a recipe I’d recommend doing as individual cupcake sizes. Trust me on that one. It bakes more like a pie than a cookie and you’d have a big mess on your hands in individual cupcakes.

  9. Is it possible to serve this slightly warmed up? I know that could result in a bit of a melty mess, but I’m such a fan of warm chocolate chip cookies that I was hoping it would still work to serve these warm…

    1. Yes, and yes it could be a melty mess but if you’re okay with that, go for it. Or just don’t let it cool much coming out of the oven. Enjoy!

  10. This. Looks. Amazing. Surely, flaxseed will work to replace the eggs. I have success with cookies but never with brownies. The ingredients just won’t emulsify, as brownies bake. *shrugs*

    1. I don’t think I would try using flax seeds for eggs in this recipe. I’ve done that in vegan baking but in this recipe, I wouldn’t do it.

  11. Not a pie maker?! Pretty sure your crack pie has been one of the most appreciated recipes made from here to date :D

    I actually cannot wait to try this one out! Cheers!

  12. OMG This looks exactly like the TollHouse Pie the HomeEc class in my high school would make and sell for $2.50 a slice at lunch. How I wish I still had that metabolism so I could consume unholy amounts of this pie. So excited to make this!

    1. It sounds similar just based on your title of it and yes…we all wish we had our h.s. metabolisms back :)

  13. I have one question. Do I place the pie crust at the bottom of a baking plate and at the top of it the rest chocolate batter and then in the oven? Sorry but as a beginner i have to understand the basics first. :-)

    1. Buy a frozen piecrust that already comes in a tin. Then follow the recipe and bake. Enjoy!

  14. I’m not much of a pie person either, but this one looks amazing!!! I think I’m gonna have to get out of my comfort zone and bake pie… Definitely pinning!

  15. When this popped up in my emails I almost felt myself begin to drool. I’ve wanted to try one of your giant cookie pizzas for a while now, and this has just been added to the list! 

  16. Oh MY!!! I must make this yummy gooey goodness! I am in AWE!!! All of the link recipes you posted look amazing! Which one is your favorite? I would love to make a ooey gooey one that is almost like raw cookie dough! You should do a comparison post!

    1. They’re all so good it’s hard to pick a favorite! I loved this pie though for gooeyness!

  17. I am not a pie maker either so this is perfect! Besides – gooey center! Yes, please!!

  18. So I’m sitting here, trying to motivate myself to get up and workout, even though I’m hungry (really just snacky) and I made the mistake of reading this. Now, all I want is COOKIES and THIS PIE, in particular.

    Luckily I don’t have the ingredients on hand or my day would be over before it starts!

    Cookie Pies, Cookie Cakes, all those things are so much better than pies and cakes. Basically, I’m team cookie for LIFE.

    1. This was so extremely decadent and wonderful. Like wow. I gave it away to people in my ‘food giving circle’ and then got texts wondering if I had more! Team cookie all the way!

  19. I know you said “alternatively,” BUT would there be an issue if I topped this yummy cake with ice cream, wHipped cream and hot fudge?? Or maybe ice cream and caramel sauce :D? Happy Friday!

    1. I love the way you think and I am all about ALL of it! Like a hot fudge sundae on top of the cookie pie…the more the merrier! Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend and stay cool in this heat wave!

  20. This pie takes the cake!! It looks gooey, chocolaty and ohhhh so good. I don’t know what it is about raw cookie dough but it is irresistible to me too, so I would have to get that batter in the pie shell pronto!

    1. This batter, omg. It was…some of the best cookie dough/batter of my life. I had to get it into the shell pronto too!

  21. Wow. You say you’re not a pie maker, but this is the best pie ever. That layer of chocolate chips on the bottom is screaming at me in the best way possible. So delicious!

    1. They were supposed to ‘float’ but you know how chips are (and blueberries!) in that they like to sink but no worries because it just made the bottom layer that much better :)

    2. If you don’t want the chips, nuts or berries to sink just coat them lightly in flour before adding.

      1. Yes I do try the flour trick with nuts and berries but with chips I don’t find it as effective so in that case I will use mini chips, but here, I didn’t care if they sunk.

  22. I seriously want to hug you. A lot. This is just beautiful. I do have a ?, did you have to put a pie shield to prevent the crust from overcooking?
