Brownie Pie combined two amazing desserts into one and creates a treat that’s perfect for holidays and weeknights alike. A dessert can’t get much easier than pouring brownie batter into a pie shell and baking it until it reaches the best consistency. Serve it warm with some vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup on top and you will be in heaven.
For a little holiday twist on a brownie pie, try my Brownie Pecan Pie. You will not be disappointed!
I have an incredible weakness for brownies (and cookies). There is nothing that comes close to gooey, warm, rich chocolate brownies that is still warm from the oven. (Nothing, except maybe chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven, but brownies would still be better.) I like brownies that are still soft and gooey in the middle with a crunchy top.
That is exactly the kind of brownie that fill this pie. It’s gooey and soft in the middle and it has a little crunch on top, which goes very well with the pie crust. Of course, if you don’t exactly share my love for gooey brownies, you can simply bake this pie a little bit longer and get brownie filling that is more done. All it will need is extra 5-10 minutes in the oven.
This is a great dessert for any occasion, from holiday dinners to tailgating parties. All you need is a bowl and a whisk to make the brownie filling. Then you pour it into a pie crust that can be homemade or pre-made. I’m a huge fan of the pre-made pie crust because it gets me that much faster to the brownie with less effort.
Depending on the occasion, you can make this pie in a pretty pie dish or aluminum pie pan that can be easily transported. No matter how and where you serve it, don’t forget the ice cream!
HOW TO MAKE BROWNIE PIE
This dessert is so easy, there isn’t much you can do to have it not come out awesome.
Preheat the oven to 350° and grease a 9-inch pie baking dish. Gently unroll the refrigerated pie crust and fit it into the pie dish.
To make the brownie batter, simply whisk together the ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth. (If using nuts, chocolate chips, or caramel bits, fold it into the batter.) Pour the batter into the pie crust and spread it evenly.
How long to bake brownie pie?
Bake time for this pie will depend on how done you like the brownies. I love gooey center in the brownies, so I cook it less.
For gooier center, bake brownie pie for 33-35 minutes. For a brownie that is more done, cook for about 45 minutes.
Let the pie rest for 10-15 minutes before cutting.
WHAT TO ADD TO BROWNIE PIE
There are several ingredients you can add to the brownie to give it additional flavor so try mixing in:
Chopped pecans or walnuts
Dark, milk, or white chocolate chips
Peanut butter chips or mini Reese’s cups
Mix in about 3/4-1 cup right into the brownie batter.
