For my mom’s birthday this year, she asked for Chocolate Chip Pie. Apparently this is a recipe that my grandma used to make when my mom was little and they lived on a farm. As best as I can figure, this pie may have originated in the early 1950s.
When my mom said she wanted Chocolate Chip Pie, I immediately thought of something similar to a pecan pie, but with chocolate chips in it instead… I have no idea why I thought that, but it’s a good thing I got the recipe! This Chocolate Chip Pie is nothing like that!
Instead, Chocolate Chip Pie is a light, fluffy and sweet marshmallow pie with a graham cracker crust. It’s really quite tasty, and I loved that it was very easy!
The funny part is that after getting the recipe, I started scouring the internet trying to find the same recipe, but maybe this was more regional or something. The only mention I found of the same pie is from a newspaper clipping in Missouri in 1951. But since my family isn’t from Missouri, I have no idea what got my grandma to start making this pie!
No matter where it came from, Chocolate Chip Pie is delicious!
