My changes were to only use 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 t vanilla (I'm not a huge fan of vanilla and using half ended up being a good decision!), leave out the nuts (we don't like them), and 1/8 teaspoon salt. I read a bunch of the reviews first and made sure to beat my eggs for about 3 minutes in my mixer, and added my melted butter when it was warm rather than hot. Then I checked the temperature of the batter before adding the chocolate chips to make sure it wasn't warm enough to melt them. I read that the chips sink to the bottom of the pie, so used 3/4 cup regular chocolate chips and 1/4 cup minis because I thought maybe the minis wouldn't sink. Turns out they'll sink no matter what size they are! 40 minutes after putting the pie in the oven, I sprinkled the top with another handful of chocolate chips. My pie was actually done after 50 minutes. I stuck a toothpick in the center and it came out mostly clean. The pie is wonderful- it's just like eating a soft, gooey, fresh from the oven cookie. Even when it cools and firms up, the texture is still like that! Awesome!
