1 - 9 inch Oreo pie crust, baked
1 cup milk
splash of vanilla extract
12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 ounces of chopped Pecans
1 few unbroken pecan halves for a topping
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 bag of Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chips Cookies
Prep the pie crust by brushing it with slightly beaten egg yoke and then baking at 375^deg for 5 minutes.
Using a rolling pin, crust most of the cookies into course crumbs.
In a frying pan, melt the butter and slowly cook the pecans over a low flame - just enough to give them some color. Mix them into the crushed chocolate chip cookies. Sprinkle about half of them on the pie crust.
Use a double boiler, or put a heat-proof mixing bowl over a medium saucepan with boiling water on the stove.
Heat the milk and chocolate chips, stirring until smooth and creamy. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour into the baked pie crust, top with the other half of crushed cookie and pecans. Refrigerate overnight.
Top with whipped cream and a few of the uncrushed cookies and pecan halves.
