Chocolate Chip Walnut Pie

I have been craving this pie for the past few days and decided today would be the perfect day to eat pie.  This is my kind of pie, chocolaty and nutty (a near perfect combination)!

Chocolate Chip Walnut Pie

1 9-inch unbaked pie shell
2 large eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped toasted walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl until foamy.  Beat in flour, sugars, salt and vanilla.  Beat in butter.  Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.  Spoon into unbaked pie shell.

Bake for 55-60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean.  Cool on wire rack.  Serve warm with whipped cream.

*One recipe I have for this pie uses melted butter that has cooled instead of softened butter.  Next time I might try melting and browning the butter and see how it turns out.

Recipe slightly adapted from Very Best Baking
