Toll House Pie
From Nestle
Makes one nine-inch pie

1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans / walnuts
Sweetened whipped cream and vanilla ice cream, optional

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Ready the pie shell (if using a frozen pie shell, you do not need to thaw it).

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the eggs on high until light and fluffy. Add the flour, sugar, and brown sugar and mix well. Beat in butter and vanilla. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts.

Spoon the dough into the pie shell and bake for approximately 1 hour until a toothpick inserted halfway from the edge and the center comes out clean (I added a sprinkling of chocolate chips to the top of the pie halfway through baking, since most of the chocolate chips sink during baking). Cool on a wire rack and serve warm with whipped cream and ice cream.

This pie can be made ahead. When to serve, rewarm in a 300 degree F oven for 20 minutes.
