I haven’t made dessert in awhile and was in the mood to do some baking this week. I had a leftover pie crust from holidays and wanted a simple pie recipe. I looked through my list of “to make” recipes and found this recipe for brownie pie. It was so good and easy to make. The one thing I realized I need to add to my kitchen is a regular pie pan. I only have a deep dish pan and it would have been better in a regular pan.
The recipe is so rich and fudgy … you’ll definitely enjoy it!
1 pie crust, unbaked
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your pie pan with the unbaked pie crust. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the flour and cocoa powder until just combined. Stir in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the pie crust and evenly smooth out. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes until brownie is set. If the crust is browning too quickly, tent with aluminum foil. Remove from oven and allow to cool before slicing.
