Tips

There are a few options when it comes to the pie crust for this recipe:

  • Purchase a refrigerated or frozen ready-made pie crust. Thaw one of the crusts (if needed) according to package directions and unroll into a 9-inch pie pan. Crimp the edges as desired before filling and baking. Reserve the other crust for another use.
  • Purchase a prepared frozen pie crust. These usually come in their own disposable pan with a beautifully crimped edge, making it a great choice if you are taking a pie to share at a family gathering or potluck. Defrost according to the package directions before filling and baking.
  • Make your own pie crust. Once you learn a few tricks to making your own pie crust, it's hard to beat the flavor and texture.

Recipe Variations

  • Try swapping the semisweet chocolate chips with dark chocolate chunks for a richer flavor and different texture.
  • Chopped walnuts or peanuts can be used in place of chopped pecans if you prefer.
  • Add a spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder into the dry ingredients for a double chocolate chip pie experience.
