Fudgy Brownie Pie

I am pretty much guaranteed a happy family when I bake up either chocolate chip cookies or brownies. Granted, both have to be nut-free, and if I happen to work in frosting or extra chocolate, the praise is magnified. But sometimes I need to shake things up a bit.

How about baking brownies as a pie filling?  And topping it with whipped cream? Yes, you guessed it. This fudgy brownie pie drew accolades from the entire family.

Tips for Making a Brownie Pie!

This is a super easy recipe even if you make your own pastry crust. Plus, the one bowl brownie filling only takes minutes to prepare!

  • If you’re not one who likes to roll out a homemade pastry shell, this brownie filling can easily be poured into a pre-made crust. In fact, the shorter profile of the store bought version  will allow the filling to come right to the rim for a picture perfect presentation. Even a graham cracker crust would be delicious!
  • This fudgy brownie recipe is one of my favorites. Just melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Pour into the pie shell and bake! So simple and perfect for chocoholics!

  • To cut perfect slices, chill your brownie pie first. Bring to room temperature before serving to get the full fudginess of this dessert.
  • Top with vanilla ice cream and fudge sauce or sweetened whipped cream and fresh raspberries. Your fudgy brownie pie will be a dessert to remember!

My family also loves these simple One Bowl Fudgy Brownies, my go-to recipe for a quick chocolate fix. This decadent Hot Fudge Brownie Cheesecake and this Brownie Trifle are two over the top brownie recipes you’ll want to save for special occasions…or ordinary occasions!  I also have my eye on these Peanut Butter Brownies and these World’s Best Caramel Brownies.

  21. I’ve never bought a pre-made pie shell but I do often pie pastry because as Jamie Oliver says, (who buys stock cubes), ‘I’m busy’.

I do encourage that etiquette but struggle with results! xx
