Brownie Pie


  • 1 refrigerated crust (from a pack of 2)
  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all purpose flour


  1. Place pie crust as directed and press into a 9” pie plate. Chill until filling is ready.
  2. Place baking chocolates and butter in a skillet over medium low heat.  Stirring until melted and smooth.
  3. Stir sugar into chocolate mixture, then stir in eggs until well mixed. Add the vanilla, cocoa, and salt and stir until smooth, then carefully stir in the flour.
  4. Pour batter into the pie crust.  Cover the pie crust with strips of foil. Bake over medium heat (350 degrees) with top coals for approximately 45 minutes, until the top is cracked.  The center won’t turn to a crumbly brownie texture because of the crust - it’ll stay pretty fudgy, but if you like it more done, cook it longer, until less wet more crumbs stick to the toothpick. Your choice!
  5. Cool the pie completely before slicing and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
