Chocolate Town Pie is my new favorite pie and I think it will remain that way! Yummy and so easy to make. I could put whipped cream on it but I want you to see how it looks then you can add the whipped cream if you like. It tastes like a pecan pie with melted chocolate chips in it. When I read this recipe it looked like to me that it would be a chocolate cookie in a crust but no… It is much better and has that soft gooey, yummy center like a Pecan pie.
Here is the recipe I got from a friend.
- CHOCOLATE TOWN PIE
9 inch unbaked pie shell
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips (I used the big milk chocolate kind)
1 cup chopped pecans (you could use walnuts) but then, it wouldn’t taste like a pecan pie would it?
Prepare pastry shell; set aside. Heat oven to 350. In a smallmixer bowl cream butter, add eggs and vanilla. combine sugar and flour and add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into unbaked pastry shell.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden . Cool about one hour. Serve warm, with whipped cream.
This Chocolate Town Pie is as “easy as pie”! I can hardly wait to make it again. I won’t even wait for a holiday for this one.
