A College Memory

Don't forget to leave your link infowith Mr. Linky He lives at Lisa's blog.
Today I bring you a memory. When I attended college in Brownwood, Texas at Howard Payne University. One of our favorite places to eat was a great home-style cookin' restaurant called "Pass the Biscuit" This was the place where I learned to LOVE fried pickles and where I learned to adore "Toll House Pie" So many of my friends worked there and it was more than a place to go and eat. It was a place to sit and visit and build relationships. This past weekend was Howard Payne Homecoming and I did not make it back, once again. So in honor of my Alma mater... Here is a favorite of mine and I am sure it will be yours too.
Toll House Pie

1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shell (thawed)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) of butter, softened
1 cup Nestle Toll House® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

PREHEAT oven to 325˚ F
BEAT eggs in large mixer bowl on high speed until foamy.
BEAT in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
BEAT in butter.
STIR in morsels and nuts.
SPOON into pie shell.
PLACE on baking sheet.

BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 15 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

Now, quick... head over to Lisa's and see many more tasty treats!

Between this recipe and your sister's recipe I'm not going to be able to fit through the doors! (I am going to send Lisa's cake to hubs' co-workers, but I think I am going to keep your pie and share it with our neighbor.) Mmmmmm..... pie!

I have wanted this recipe for a while. When I was growing up someone made a recipe like this and I have never found one quite like it. I am going to have to make this and see if this is it. I think it is. I sounds just like it. Thanks for sharing.

LOVE LOVE LOVE me some "PAss the Biscuits"! Those people should have never sold! Bad idea!

LOVE LOVE LOVE me some fried pickles! I have tried them other places and none are the same as those at "Biscuits".

Never tried the Toll House pie there, but I do have a great chocolate chip pie recipe!
