    Jen Wiehl's Note:

    I snagged this recipe from my mother's recipe box This is by far and away my favorite dessert my momma made when I was growing up. A word of warning: the recipe says 6-8 servings, but I'd suggest 10-12 servings because it's soooo rich! Here are my mom's notes & the recipe. January, 1985 - Bon Appetit Page 8 - RSVP I think I have finally tasted the ultimate chocolate chip cookie; funny thing is, it is not a cookie at all, but a pie - the chocolate chip pie served at the Whiffletree Inn in Ilion, New York. I would be willing to bet that I am not the only Bon Appetit reader who woud like to know how this dense and chewy treat is prepared.

      I'm not sure what the consistency of this pie should be at the end of an hour. Mine was still a little cookie-doughish. That's not a bad thing--it went very well served warm with ice cream. Very attractive as a pie, and a bit more sophisticated than a cookie. I can see why Jen enjoyed this as a kid--heed her advice to take small samples. A little goes a long way.
