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.

Made this with vanilla pudding and cool whip on top sooooo good!!!
Can you prepare the brownie batter the night before and then bake the next day?
How far in advance can you make this?
Ummm…this is decadent! Just delicious. I baked mine for 40 minutes. It is definitely fudgy and smooth but with the chocolate morsels in it of course. Glad I tried this dessert on “pie day” today.
This is a delicious and easy pie to make. My family loves it! I did use half milk chocolate chips and half semi- sweet. Gherradelli chocolate is the best!
can you replace the butter with oil or will that ruin the pie
This was my daughter’s request for her birthday instead of a traditional birthday cake. I embellished it with some some chocolate fudge frosting decor to make it look more festive. It was absolutely delicious with vanilla ice cream! Definitely had a more fudge-like than cake-like consistency which made it very moist much to our delight.
Hope your daughter had a wonderful birthday Debbie!
Hi. I made this brownie pie tonight. I’m not sure I baked it long enough. The crust was definitely done and I let it cool completely but when I sliced into it, I was surprised by the consistency. Is it supposed to be like brownie batter or brownies?
It should be like a fudgy brownie Carrie.
Well, I’m guessing I didn’t bake it long enough. It tasted fine, very rich but it was wetter than a fudge brownie, although it didn’t fall apart. I wonder if altitude made a difference. We are at 6000 feet. Thank you for the recipe and the reply 😊
How yummy! Brownie with ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. Brownie pie sounds amazing. And speaking of amazing – Happy New Year! Hope it’s a great one!
