Following the recipe as written, I had to drain off a good amount of butter when I took the pie out of the oven. On the second try, I cut the butter to 3/4 c., added a dash of salt and a splash of vanilla. Excellent! and the texture is *much* better.

Unfortunately I thought this pie was worse than mediocre. It has a very bizarre consistancy of pudding-ish goo. It was not what I was expecting and this was left virtually uneaten at Thanksgiving. I did follow the recipe exactly. I will certainly not be making this again. Sorry :(

This pie was very good. I followed the advise of some other reviewers, and cut back the butter to 1/2 cup. When I was rummaging through my freezer looking for a bag of walnuts that was hiding in there, I found a bag of Heath toffee chips, so I threw in about a half a cup of those too. Added a tsp of vanilla, too. My kitchen timer can be playful, and sometime during the timing process, it started counting backwards. That sly little dickens has done this before. I didn't notice it until I smelled the pie getting what I thought was a little too done. I whisked it out of the oven immediately. It was still very good, but I would have liked it a little more gooey. My husband kept asking "When can I eat this pie?", so I let him go at it while it was still hot. We both liked it very much. It was not the recipe's fault that the pie was a tad overdone. Will definitely make this again and keep an eye on my capricious timer.

I changed it to 1/2 cup butter. This mixture was perfect for one 9 inch pie shell. It wasn't to gooey or pudding like. it came out great.

So I've made this twice. The first time there was just way too much butter. Hubby and I use to get toll house pie at a restaurant we would go to frequently when we were dating & first married. I wanted something less gooey. The taste was there... but the texture was off from all that butter. Also, the pie we're use to had a graham cracker crust. So the next time I made it I cut the butter down to 1/2 cup and didn't melt it. I softened it (It was very soft..some of it melted). I made Graham Cracker Crust from this site first and pressed that in my pie plate and let it sit in the fridge for 30 min before I filled it. Baked for about 55 min (last 10 cover w/ foil) and it was perfect! Still nice & moist. With these modifications, it's a 5 star recipe..but as is, 4 stars.

My family loves this pie. Its gone within a day when i make it. I always add a whole bag of the chocolate chips instead of just a cup. I think that thats also what fixs the problem with the extra butter that some people said they have. And make sure the butter is cooled when you make this, if you leave the butter hot, it makes the pie gooey.

I made it the first way as given, and then improvised for an improved version the second time around (at least according to my friends and me). Cut the butter to 3/4 C, add 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract and add 1 cup of old fashioned (e.g. non-instant) oats. It cuts down on the richness greatly, but gives it great texture and flavor.

One of our favorites here -- we make a few small changes. First I only use 1/2 cup butter, I also add a pinch of salt, a teeny bit of vanilla and I also add a small pinch of instant coffee. With the few additions it really brings out the flavor of the chocolate. We've also discovered we like it with a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of semi-sweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips. Absolutely fantastic with some vanilla ice cream.
