Chocolate Chip Pie

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup (2-sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet mini chocolate chips
2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans, optional

Whipped cream:

1 - 2 pints (3 - 4-cups) heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 (9-inch) pie plates; set aside. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. In a seperate bowl using an electric mixer, cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated. Beat in the vanilla. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, and mix until fully combined. Fold in the 2 cups chocolate chips and nuts if you are using them. Divide the dough between two prepared pie plates and smooth the tops with a spatula. Bake about 30 minutes or until pies are golden brown and slightly firm to the touch but still soft. If the pies begin to darken too much before they are baked through, cover with foil and continue baking. Let pies cool completely on a wire rack. While the pies cool, whip the cream and confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form (tips curl). Fold in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate whipped cream until ready to use. Spread the whipped cream over the pies and serve.
