You can also buy pre-made pie crust at the store. Once the dough is ready, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough to size of pan like you would for any type of pie. Chop up the walnuts and sprinkle sugar to lightly coat the walnuts, toss together. Now, put down your 1st layer of dough. Spread a thin layer of 1st jam. On top sprinkle half of the walnut and sugar mixture. Now place on top of that the 2nd layer of dough. Spread another layer of jam (you can use the same one or mix the flavors). Sprinkle the rest of the walnut and sugar mixture. You can make another layer if you'd like. You will need to end with a layer of dough on top. Secure the top layer of dough, prick through with fork to make slots for the steam to exit. Bake until you can smell the dough and is nice and golden brown. Be sure to check how the dough is doing off and on. Take out of the oven and cool. Once cooled gently go around the edges with knife to just loosen from the pan. Now melt enough chocolate chips to cover the entire top of the cooked dough. Let the chocolate harden and cool! Then, carefully cut into squares or rectangles. Place onto serving dish.
