I found this recipe in my grandmother's stash. I can't tell you the name of it. Apparently the name is copyrighted and has almost gone to the Supreme Court in defense of that name. So, I guess I will just come up with my own name for it -- Mixed Nut Chocolate Chip Pie. I know -- not the most creative name, but it fits. This pie, much like my name for it, is no-frills There's not much to it. It takes all of 5 minutes to get into the oven. It's crazy delicious. For some reason I like to use the descriptive that a recipe is like one food had babies with another food. I don't know why, but I'm about to do it again. Are you ready? This pie is like a chocolate chip cookie, a brownie, and a pie had babies. I don't think it could get much better than that.
Dump all you stuff in a bowl and stir. That's all there is to the filling.
Now dump that all in your unbaked pie crust. Use a store bought one if you want to....
Now throw it in the oven.
When your pie comes out of the oven, it's all crispy crackly on top and ooey-gooey in the middle.
Yum. Yum. Yum.
