DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the crust in a pie plate and prick the bottom with a fork.
  • Cover lightly with a sheet of foil, pressing it gently into the crust and making sure the edges are covered.
  • Place weights (metal pie weights or dried beans) on the foil to weigh down the bottom and hold up the sides of the crust.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then remove foil.
  • Continue baking until the crust is firm and has lost its sheen but is not browned, about 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the butter, eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Add the brown sugar and flour and mix until thoroughly blended.
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold in the walnuts and chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the crust.
  • Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and place on a rack to cool.
  • Serve warm.
  • (cook time includes blind bake time).
