Bud's Chocolate Chip Pie

  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 c packed brown sugar

  • ½ c coarsely chopped pecans
  • ½ c chocolate chips
  • 1 (10 inch) cafe pie shell
Serving Size


Wow!! This is a big deal! Royers Round Top Café takes small town charm to another level. The owner Bud has his signature Chocolate Chip Pie – it’s a recipe that’s almost NEVER given out! One of the best I’ve ever had. Chunky, rich ingredients that are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth…


Mix sugar, brown sugar and flour together.  Stir in the eggs and then the butter, combining well. Allow mixture to cool for 30 minutes then fold in the nuts and chocolate chips.  Spread in the prepared crust and bake at 325 degrees for 60 to 70 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  This pie freezes exceptionally well, if it lasts that long!

So glad I signed up for your goodtaste email as I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all your info & recipes. Great to receive info on traveling around Texas on different places to stay & restaurants to try. We plan on using it for our wk-end/wk-day get aways.

“it’s a recipe that’s almost NEVER given out” is SO untrue it is not even funny. This is the recipe for Nestles Toll House Pie that I have been using for over 20 years. The only difference is that a few of the ingredient quantities have been increased.

    Hmmm..did not know that. Wonder if the ingredient amounts Bud’s uses dramatically change the pie?? Thanks for the feedback!!!

      Looks like he increased everything but the eggs. It MIGHT make a bit of difference in the texture (I doubt it, but without trying both versions, I can’t say for sure), but the taste should be pretty much the same.

I had Royer’s Texas Trash Pie this weekend in Round Top. Best pie I have ever had. My pie had, in addition to everything listed above, had coconut and pretzels. Wished I could get their pie. crust recipe. I’m going to try your recipe and include the additional ingredients. Thanks!
