No Name Pie Recipe: This Tried-and-True Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Recipe Deserves a Name

This pie recipe – or at least its lack of a real name – always reminds me of the song Horse With No Name by America. Why did the singer spend at least 10 days in a desert and never give his horse a name? 

By the same logic, I have no idea why Aunt Ruth never gave this pie a real name, but I’m glad she shared the easy dessert recipe with me over 40 years ago! And our family dutifully requests it by its (lack of) name.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: Makes 1 pie


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Sift sugar and flour together.
  2. Cream butter with sugar/flour mixture together. (The better you cream this, the more pie-like and less cookie-like the end result will be. But even impatience is still rewarded with a tasty pie!)
  3. Add eggs and stir well.
  4. Add chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into unbaked pie shell.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 45 minutes. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
