Tollbouse cookie pie

Sometimes you just need something sweet. 

Sometimes you just need something sweet and completely not healthy.

 Sometimes you just need a tollhouse cookie pie.

I know this is a running blog, and I am supposed to inspire you with healthy recipes, but I also believe life is about balance.  Work hard play hard right?  In this case play hard eat hard.  It's okay to put down the wheat bread for a croissant.  And sometimes its okay to load an apple pie crust with cookie dough.  

It was a friend birthday Saturday and his cake request was a tollhouse cookie pie.  I am not a baker.   I can't even pretend I am a baker.  I destroy everything I bake... I burn it..... I dont measure the ingredients. It is usually a disaster.  

When I found this 8 ingredient recipe, I felt empowered and pulled out my neglected mixing bowl.  Mix all ingredient, pour in pie shell, bake for an hour.  It is trickier than it sounds.  


This was absolutely delicious-  Still ooey gooey in the middle, and paired with vanilla ice cream it tasted like a cookie sandwich.  

How do you make this recipe lower in fat?
Best way to make unhealthier snacks healthier....

1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. sugar

1 c. butter, melted and cooled

Add flour and both sugars. Beat until well blended, and blend in melted butter. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
