Toll House Walnut Pie

I love pie! I love the many different versions of pies.  I love how easy pies are to make, especially if you use a pre-made pie crust. You basically throw most ingredients into a bowl, mix and pour into your pie crust…how easy is that!

I know some of you have never made a pie but don’t let that stop you from making a pie.  I have a pie crust recipe posted:  How to Make Perfect Pie Crust.  Homemade pie crust is not that hard to make, but if you prefer to buy one from the store, they are also very good.  I occasionally use refrigerated pie crust if I don’t have time, or when I have some in the freezer I need to use up.  I usually keep some on hand for those moments when I need to make a pie fast.

This recipe is from a blog I’ve been going to for several years “Cooking With Serena.”  She also has a Facebook group called “Tried and True Recipes.” Serena is a down home cook who lives in West Virginia.  Serena occasionally goes out with a bow-an-arrow and shoots wild game herself.  I’m not a fan of wild game, but she has so many recipes on her blog that are Not wild.  When I first began going to Serena’s group, she had around 500 members, now she has almost 8,000 members and growing daily!  I met Serena several years ago while visiting my brother who also lives in WV.  Serena was so sweet and so kind-hearted, if you visit her blog, you will love her! 

Anyway, if you love chocolate chips, walnuts and ooey gooey pie, you’ll love this recipe! I hope it becomes one of your go-to-pies when you just gotta have pie!!

Happy Pie Baking!

  1. Thank you backpackbee! I’ve never made an oatmeal pie, but recently saw one in a cookbook of mine and almost made it. I’ll have to give it a try sometime!
