Toll House Pie
Last week I lured my friend Karl over to help me with some home project this single girl couldn’t do on her own. The lure came with the promise of dinner. It was a good excuse to make a steak dish, since I don’t eat meat. That explains why it is a rare blog entry that will feature beef here on Adventures In The Kitchen.
For dessert I needed something quick and had all the ingredients to make a Toll House Pie. It is a cookie in a pie. It is sinfully good and people will want more even while saying they shouldn’t. Top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an added bonus.
These pictures are pitiful I know, I just started talking with Karl and forgot to take more pictures. My friends humor me, allow me to take pictures before serving them the food. I am sure that is a blatant violation of dinner party etiquette. Oh well, once you serve them this slice of chocolate goodness they will forget all about it.
