Forget about expensive mixes! This homemade brownie pie is a snap to fix, and it bakes to perfection in a pie plate. Slice the brownie into narrow wedges and serve them with a dollop of whipped cream or some chocolate sauce, or cut it into small chunks to make a brownie sundae.

The ingredients make a basic pie, and it's quite versatile. If you like frosted brownies, spread the cooled brownie pie with chocolate icing or ganache. Add mini or regular chocolate chips to the batter for a double dose of chocolate. Or add some brickle chips or white chocolate chips to give it texture and color.

The brownies are fabulous served warm with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzling of caramel or chocolate sauce!

What You'll Need

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)

  2. Grease a 9-inch pie plate or spray it with nonstick baking spray.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer on low speed, blend the eggs with the sugar, butter, flour, cocoa, vanilla, and salt. Increase the mixer speed to medium-high and beat for 4 minutes.
  4. Fold the walnuts or pecans into the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pie plate.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven F for 30 to 35 minutes. (Pie will settle as it cools.)
