This pie is a favorite. I usually just make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I usually make four of them--two without nuts and two with nuts. I much prefer the ones with nuts, but that's because I love nuts. This is delicious with whipped cream or served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
1 unbaked 9-inch, deep dish pie crust (I prefer the Marie Callendar's brand
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened, but not melty
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Beat eggs in large mixer bowl on high speed until foamy. Add in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until smooth. Beat in butter. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (I prefer to do this with a spoon so that the chocolate chips don't get smashed apart). Spoon into pie crust.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
