Nestle Toll House Cookie Pie

Tollhouse Cookie Pie1

Bad news, guys: for the past few days I’ve had a pretty bad case of writer’s block.

Seriously. It’s really, really bad. I’ve been meaning to put up a post for the past couple of days, but I just couldn’t make it happen. Every time I tried to start writing a post with something ‘meaningful’ to say, it just backfired and I would get distracted with something else. Usually I can manage to pair a recipe with some kind of vaguely interesting story, reflection or topic but today I’ve got absolutely nothing meaningful or interesting to say.

But I still really wanted to put SOMETHING up. So I guess I can rattle off some random, meaningless tidbits of info to fill up white space.

My twin sister’s getting married in September. I’m (naturally) one of the bridesmaids. Next Saturday I have to go shopping for a dress. Here’s hoping I can find a nice one.

I’ve just discovered the show “Sherlock” and have been binge watching it on Netflix this weekend. It’s pretty good, I think. Benedict Cumberbatch was a good casting choice to play Sherlock Holmes.

I got 2 new cookbooks for Christmas and have already made 2 recipes from them that I’ll be sharing on the blog soon enough.

That’s 3 things about my life in general; I guess I can also share 3 things about this recipe.

It was a really cloudy, gloomy day outside when I did this photo shoot. Thus, the rather unsatisfactory quality of these pictures. Just try and overlook it.

For those that have never had it, a Toll House Cookie Pie (particularly when it’s piping hot) tastes like the thickest, chewiest, gooiest chocolate chip cookie you’ve ever had. In other words, it tastes like a foodgasm that will make your eyes roll back in your head. Ice cream on top  is also mandatory.

I used some walnuts in this that had been sitting in my cupboard for…a while. It wasn’t a good idea. Don’t get me wrong, nothing bad happened. The pie still tasted delicious. But still, a lesson was still learned: don’t use old nuts. For anything.

I doubt there’s still anyone at the Fiesta Friday Party #50 this week, but I’m still dragging my late self there anyway. Thanks to Angie@TheNoviceGardener for hosting as always, and  Selma @Selma’s Table and Sue @birgerbird for co-hosting. Don’t mind me, I’m just dropping off my little pie.

Now if you’ll excuse me: I have an appointment with my sofa, blanket and a man named Benedict that I’ve got to be getting back to now….

  2. Cut yourself some slack, Jess, not every post needs to be an essay – sometimes it’s really nice for us to read the everyday humdrum stuff about you too! Not that your twin getting married is humdrum – that is exciting!! And a fellow Sherlock fan – isn’t BC amazing? And the show is filmed so brilliantly as well – we just love the show. If you like a bit of period drama, BC is in one called Parade’s End… Your cookie pie looks very, very good! Thanks so much for bringing it to the party and enjoy Sherlock! x

    • Benedict Cumberbatch really does grow on you. I’l be sure to check out Parade’s End, as Period drama is one of my favorite movie genres Thanks Selma 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness. Photos are beautiful…regardless of what you say!! Yep. I’m totally making this, and am planning on happily shoving my face in this gorgeous pie. This is perfect. I completely understand what you’re saying about nuts…and I’d like to add flour to that list of what not to use after it’s been sitting in the cabinet for a while!! I learned that the hard way… 🙂 LOVE this. LOVE you. ❤

    • Well ya know, I’m my own toughest critic.

      I’ve never tried using flour that was really old- usually it just doesn’t last very long in my house as i’m usually always baking something, but I’ll try to remember that for future reference now that you say it’s not a good idea. But yeah, old nuts: DON’T DO IT. I Googled it later and turns out, that old nuts can actually in some cases be poisonous, which made me flip out for a hot second. Then I remembered that the pie was long gone and no one was dead so I figured it all would be ok lol

      Love YOU ❤

    • It IS always easier to talk about the weather, both in life and online lol Thank you Naina- for the compliment and the congratulations to Jas, I’ll give her your well wishes 🙂
