Chocolate Chip Pie

Speaking of pie....oh wait....we weren't, but we should be!  The truth is, I made this pie last Thanksgiving, but by that time I had already posted a lot in advance, so....I decide it to push it towards the end of the summer as we are gearing up for a new season of fall holidays and everything pie.
Traditionally we have apple pie and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, but the third (or fourth) dessert is sometimes a toss up.  I was trying to think of something new and ran across this recipe from Toll House.  It's a sweet dessert, but it really was delicious with ice cream.  It's a cross between a cookie, but with a denser texture.  Fall's version of a Pazookie if you will.
Chocolate Chip Pie
Ingredients:  1 unbaked 9 inch deep dish pie shell, 2 eggs, 1 c. flour, 1 c. sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 stick of butter (softened to room temp), 1 c. semi sweet chocolate chips, 1 c. chopped walnuts, vanilla ice cream
Instructions:
1.  Head oven to 325.
2.  Beat the eggs on high until light and foamy.  Add the flour and both sugars.  Mix until combined.  Add the softened butter and mix one more time until completely combined.
3.  Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts until evenly throughout batter.  Spoon into prepared pie crust.
4.  Bake for 50-60 minutes (until a toothpick in the center comes out clean).  Cool for 30 minutes.  Serve with ice cream.
