Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pie

When the Amish invented this amazing recipe for chocolate chip pie they probably were thinking it would feed several people, and did not imagine that one family of four lacking in self-control could polish this off in less than 24 hours. But guess what? That totally happened. Just because you can’t eat gluten does not mean you can’t over indulge in ridiculously delicious sweets that combine two of the best foods in the world: chocolate chip cookies and pie.

The Amish probably also make their own pie crust, but since I’m still quite scared of that prospect, I picked up a pre-made gluten-free pie crust from Whole Foods and man, was it delicious. Which also gives this recipe the benefit of being incredibly easy, as this is all you need to create one of the most decadent desserts you’ll have all year.

See? My kid is all, “Yawn, mom. I was just whipping up a souffle and now this is all you got?” You put all of these basic ingredients together and this is what your pie looks like pre-oven.
