Brownie Pie tastes like a rich, fudgy brownie in a crispy, flaky pie crust. Brownies are hands down my favorite sweet treat. And I absolutely love pie. So this recipe combines 2 of my favorites into one easy to make dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth AND your chocolate cravings.
The filling is just a basic brownie batter with a few chocolate chips thrown in. This recipe works because brownies and pies cook in about the same amount of time. By the time the brownie batter sets, the pie crust should be nice and golden.
I made this Brownie Pie without nuts, but you could definitely add pecans or walnuts for a little crunch.
Brownie Pie is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or Butter Pecan. That’s what I used. 🙂
The pie slices better when it’s at room temperature so I recommend letting it cool completely (if you can find the patience), slicing it, and then reheating it.
You can use either a store-bought refrigerated pie crust or make a homemade one. Watch the video before to learn how to make a super easy and flaky pie crust.
