I will never forget the first time I had a slice of gooey chocolate chip cookie pie. It was at a restaurant when I was a teenager and it was AMAZING. The pie crust was perfect and the filling was a giant warm chocolate chip cookie – two of my favorite things in one recipe!

Why you’ll LOVE this pie recipe:

  • The butter pie crust is completely from scratch (but you can swap in a pre-made crust).
  • The filling is my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe that has been loved by millions!
  • It stays gooey in the center because of that crust on the bottom – rich as ever!
  • This pie is BETTER than Nestle Toll House Pie!
  • Perfect warm, room temperature, with whipped cream, plain or ice cream!

Ingredients in Chocolate Chip Pie

Challenge Butter: I always use the best ingredients when I make dessert, and that includes Challenge! You’ll need butter for the pie crust and the cookie filling.

Sugar: Brown and granulated sugar keep the filling sweet and soft.

Egg: Be sure to buy large eggs.

Vanilla: Always buy pure vanilla extract.

Baking Soda: Key to getting that chocolate chip cookie texture.

Salt: Reduce salt to 1/4 teaspoon if using salted butter.

Flour: Be sure to measure your flour correctly, and use all-purpose flour.

Chocolate Chips: Use your favorite flavor and brand!

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you’ll know how much I love Challenge Butter. They’re the only butter I use and the only one I grew up eating: my parents have used it for years! Challenge is available nationally and is churned fresh daily from over 400 locally owned dairies that house happy cows. I use their unsalted and salted butter regularly in my kitchen and it tastes the best – no added hormones or fillers or additives.

I love using my All Butter Pie Crust for this pie – more butter is better! You can also use a pie shell from the grocery story – refrigerated or frozen.

You can make chocolate chip cookie pie with Oreo crust or in a graham cracker crust too. Or use a chocolate chip cookie crust!

Even more – you can make chocolate chip pie – no crust! Just bake straight in a pie dish.

  1. I always start my cookies with melted butter. I know many start with softened butter but I find that melted gives it a toffee-like flavor. Plus you don’t need a mixer!
  2. Once you’ve mixed the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl, add the egg, vanilla, salt and baking soda.
  3. Stir in the all purpose flour.
  4. Add chocolate chips.
  5. Place the cookie dough in the pie shell. I’m using a regular 9-inch pie plate. This recipe is not deep-dish style.
  6. Bake it on a cookie sheet using a pie shield so the outer crust doesn’t get too brown.

This is one of our FAVORITE pies – it’s the easiest dessert and is like a giant chocolate chip cookie in a pie pan! It makes your house smell amazing and will satisfy your sweet tooth.

Can I use other chocolate chips?

You can vary this recipe as much as you like:

  • Use milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate morsels or dark chocolate bits
  • Switch it up and substitute peanut butter chips!
  • Add nuts if you like!
  • Make Mint Chocolate Chip Pie by adding Andes mint candy pieces!

What’s the best temperature to serve Chocolate Chip Pie?

I recommend serving this warm with a scoop of ice cream. Next time I’m going to add chocolate sauce or hot fudge! Last week when I made this giant cookie it was all we could do not to eat it. We are huge suckers for warm chocolate chip cookies and this recipe delivers.

How to store chocolate chip pie?

Store this covered with plastic wrap on the counter. You don’t need to refrigerate it.

Can you freeze cookie pie?

You can freeze chocolate chip cookie pie whole or freeze slices that have been wrapped in plastic wrap or placed in sandwich bags.

Can I make this chocolate chip cookie pie without crust?

You can skip the crust and just press the chocolate chip cookie dough into a pie plate – but then it’s more of a giant cookie cake, not a pie.

Can I make this ahead of time?

You can make the crust and filling up to 24 hours in advance and assemble the pie. Store it in the refrigerator until baking. Or bake it up to 2 days in advance and store in the refrigerator.

How is this better than Nestle Toll House Pie?

It’s my chocolate chip cookie recipe – it’s been made by millions of people – and is one of my most popular recipes. The chocolate chip cookie dough has a creamy richness of a brown sugar base and is SO delicious.

Should you bake pies on a cookie sheet?

I recommend baking pies on cookie sheets in case they spill over – that way there is no mess in your oven. Cool it on a wire rack so it cools down faster.

  1. Hello! I was wondering if I could use cane sugar as a substitute for the brown sugar and granulated sugar?

    1. Same temp, probably about the same time. Just check it half way through baking – it’ll be done when the top just looses the glossy look.
