When moving to Atlanta last spring one of the first restaurants I had the luck of stumbling upon was Murphy’s. It was love at first sight (wine shop) and bite (fried green tomato sandwich). And then I ended my meal with their Toll House Pie. OMG Toll House Pie. Probably one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. It was a like an uber rich warm chocolate chip cookie, but in thick pie gooey goodness form. I was hooked.
Once home I immediately Googled this ridiculous dessert and thankfully the Google God’s answered with numerous recipes. However I chose the original from Murphy’s itself (found in their book Murphy’s, 30 Years of Recipes and More.) And though the pie itself couldn’t get any better, it could get cuter with these festive polka dot heart shaped paper cake pans. Big fan of being festive without cheesy and these babies do just that.
So I hope you love the recipe as much as I do, and of course happy Valentine’s Day Loves, xoxo
What you’ll need…
1 Cup Oreo crumbs
1/4 Cup chopped walnuts
1/3 Cup un-salted butter
Toll House Pie:
1 Cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
3/4 Cup bread flour
10 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
2/3 Cup (5 oz) Nestle Semi Sweet Chocolate chips
1/2 Cup (5 oz) Nestle White Chocolate Chips
1/5 Cup (5 oz) chopped Walnut pieces
1/4 tsp of vanilla
What to do…
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees.
Crush Oreos (just the cookie, not the delicious center) in a food processor or simply in a large mixing bowl. I didn’t feel like pulling the food processor out so I used the muddler from our bar. Add finely chopped walnuts (if you choose to leave these out just sub with additional Oreos) and melted butter. Mix together. Press in to your heart pans
, completely covering the bottom. You can use a traditional tart or pie pan as well, but when using this method make sure to grease your pan and layer the sides of the tart or pie pan as well as the bottom with Oreo. But seriously, use the heart paper pans
. Not only are they beyond adorable they’re also super easy with no clean up. They already come greased plus they double as your plate. Done and done.
In your mixer add sugar and flour. Mix with paddle attachment. Beat in your eggs, melted butter, then chocolate chips and nuts till throughly mixed. Add mixture evenly to your heart pans, filing almost to the very top. Pie will rise ever so slightly when cooking. Place heart pans
on to a cookie sheet and place in to the oven. Bake at 250 for 90-110 minutes, or until tops are crusty and slightly golden brown. Stick a toothpick in the center to check for done-ness.
Step 4: Let cool for 5-10 minutes then devour still warm. I enjoy a little vanilla ice cream with mine of course.
