If you like chocolate, try this pie -- just once. It is good warmed and served with vanilla ice cream. Someone in the family used to make this and wouldn't share the recipe, but after I requested it so often, (and she got tired of making it for me), she gave in and here it is.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 slightly beaten eggs
- 6 tablespoons melted and cooled butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 unbaked pie shell
- Mix ingredients together.
- *Add chips last, so the butter doesn't melt them.
- Pour in an unbaked pie shell.
- Bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees.
- Let cool.
- Pie will appear to have 3 layers when cut.
I solved the sinking chips issue by adding about a handful more flour. Excellent recipe!
I was really expecting this to be much more sinful and yummy than it actually tasted. The vote from my family was that it was pretty good, but not a "must make again". We didn't like how the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom, but didn't quite melt into their own layer. This resulted in a lot of chocolate chips sticking to the bottom of my pie pan...and I had even sprayed it with Pam just in case. I had expected the cookie layer to be chewy and gooey, but instead it was airy, eggy and slightly spongy in texture. I served this warm with vanilla ice cream and it was a nice dessert but not quite what we were looking for.
Quick and easy. I thought it tasted like a chocolate chip cookie (the little my boys let me have) Will definitely make this again.
