Urgent Baking Advice Needed!! I think my recipe is wrong!
HELP!! I am in the middle of making chocolate chip pies and I think the recipe has the wrong amount of butter. The ingredients are
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed golden brown sugar
1 tspn vanilla extract
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/8 tspn salt
1 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter melted ---THIS CAN'T BE RIGHT, 1 stick is 1/2 cup
1 cup semisweet chcolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 9" diameter deep dish pie crust.
I'm up to the point of adding the chocolate chips and nuts, then will pour it into the crust. The thickness of the batter looks good but I haven't a clue if the amount of butter is right. I've got to finish this tonight and hit the road tomorrow. And I've got to bake a batch of cookies after the pie....
Any advice? Add another stick of butter? Oh, and I doubled the recipe as I've got 2 pie crusts to fill.
I think it's too late but fyi I found another reference for your recipe, if it's the one for McCarthy Restaurant:
In this one, 1 cup butter.
eta: nvm, it's from the epicurious recipe so they interpreted the one cup, but fwiw that one was at least reviewed whereas the one on epi had not one. Still seems like an awful lot of butter.
Oy vey, what to do?? I had already added the melted butter. The batter is thick now so I think another 1/4 cup might work (thank you Mattkin for your recipe). This is a recipe from Bon Appetit, not very old, and I checked both their website and epicurious.com. Couldn't find it on either site (and epicurious has a Chocolate Chip Pie but it's by the Deen brothers and not the same ingredients). I thought the website would have a correct version but noooo...
If this doesn't work I'll have to try another recipe.
Thanks for all your responses!!
