Chocolate Chip Pie Ingredients

Chocolate Chip Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup salted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

PIE CRUST: You can use a homemade or store-bought pie crust for this great recipe.

CHOCOLATE CHIPS: You could change up the type of chocolate chips you use in this recipe, depending on your preference. Milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or even peanut butter chips would be tasty in this easy pie recipe.

How to Make This Chocolate Chip Pie Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 325°F. Place the unbaked pie shell in the freezer to chill while preparing the rest of the pie.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Placing the pie crust in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before baking will help it to cook lightly and not become too dark during baking.

STEP TWO: Whisk together the flour and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.

STEP THREE: In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs with a whisk attachment until very foamy. Beat in the softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl until the ingredients are well combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until combined.

STEP FOUR: Fold in the chocolate chips and chopped nuts.

STEP FIVE: Spread the batter in the pie crust.

STEP SIX: Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the center is only slightly jiggly and the top of the pie is golden brown.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your pie at the lower end of the recommended baking time.

The color of the pie top will continue to deepen as the pie cools. Remove it from the oven while the center is still slightly jiggly. The pie will set as it cools.
