This make 2 pies, one for you and one for me! Trust me you will want your own, when you taste this!!
Preheat oven to 350*. Grease 2 9-inch pie pans with butter and set aside.
In a large bowl sift together:
2 3/4 C all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 1/4 t baking powder
In a bowl for an electric mixer cream:
1 C (2 sticks) real butter - softened
1 1/2 C packed brown sugar1/2 C granulated sugar
3 eggs -one at a time
1 T vanilla extract
Add flour mixture a little at a time and mix well.
3 C semisweet chocolate chips
(2 cups of chopped walnuts if you'd like, but we don't)
Divide dough between the 2 pie plates and smooth the tops with a spatula. Bake about 30 minutes or until pies are golden and slightly firm to the touch but still soft. Cover pies with foil the last 10 minutes or so to avoid darkening too much. Let pies cool a bit before serving. Best served warm and with a hugh scoop of chocolate chip ice cream. You'll be glad this make 2 pies!
