Reviews forChocolate Chip Pie
"I made this pie 3/9/18, it was not very good. I followed the directions to the letter. I put it in the ovven, not on a baking sheet, and it bubbled over the sides and all over the oven. After cleaning that up and putting it on a cookie sheet I let it cook for an hour and it was done. I put in the fridge after it cooled and when I took it out it weighed a ton and you needed a chainsaw to cut it. The taste was similar to cookie dough but honestly I was not impressed. I will not make this again. I was wondering if there was a mistake in the amount of flour. Three quarters of a cup didn't seem like a lot but when I looked at similar recipes online I found that they had the same amount or less. There is a lot of sugar in this maybe cut down the amount. I really wanted this to be good but it really wasn't."
"I actually had tried this recipe when it appeared in 1997. I decided to make it again 7/29/14. I DID use almond extract in place of the vanilla extract. I also omitted the nuts! I added 1/8 cup all-purpose flour in with the chocolate chips & added SOME Andes Mint baking bits along with the chocolate chips! I beat the eggs with my KA stand mixer and used the wire whisk-I beat 10 minutes! The eggs got foamy! I didn't cool the butter-I simply added it along with the canola oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar and flour-It worked out well!I baked at the 325o F. oven temperature and for 1-1/4 hours! What I DID DO: was save PART of the cream topping from the Southern Ambrosia Apple pie and I spread it on top of the chocolate chip pie! I think that this added a nice touch to this pie and I was able to use the topping for BOTH the Southern Ambrosia Apple pie and chocolate Chip pie! Ellen Benninger, I want to thank you for sharing this recipe! It is DEFINITELY a keeper for me!delowenstein"
"My family loves this pie! I've made it several times since it first appeared back in 1997. It's one of my day's favorites."
"This is a great recipe with the following changes. I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and used 3/4 brown sugar making the total sugar 1 cup and not 1 1/2 cups. I also added a 1/4t kosher salt to add depth of flavor. I reduced the chocolate chips to 3/4 cup and pecans to 3/4 cup for spectcular results. It was way to sickening sweet without these changes. I also prefer to use coconut oil insead of canola. My pie baked up perfect at about 30-40 minutes. Tastes best chilled overnight to set flavor."
