Brownie Pie

I feel like I don’t need to go into a whole lot of detail about this one. Brownies are delicious. Pies are delicious. Throw brownies into a pie crust and it is guaranteed to be delicious. I know people are saying we should be doing more fruit things during the summers, but chocolate forever! Brownie Pie needs no season!

Pie Crust

Step 1: In a medium bowl combine the flour and salt.

Step 2: Add the cold butter. Using clean hands work it into the flour until the texture is like breadcrumbs. There can be a few large chunks left.

Step 3: Slowly drizzle the cold water in a little at a time, working it into the dough. When the dough begins to clump together stop adding water.

Step 4: Turn the dough out onto a clean and floured surface and bring the dough together until the dry ingredients are fully incorporated.

Step 5: Form the dough into a disc shape and cover. Chill for at least 2 hours.

Step 6: Spray a pie dish (I used this one) with non-stick spray. Set aside.

Step 7: Place the dough on a clean and floured surface and begin to roll it out. The dough should be about 1/8 inch thick.

Step 8: Pick the dough up by rolling it around the rolling pin and then unrolling it over the pie dish. Adjust the dough so that it lays flat against the pie dish. You can cut off or crimp the edges to your liking.

Step 9: Place the dish in the fridge while you make the filling.

Brownie Filling

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F).

Step 2: In a medium bowl mix with a hand mixer (I used this one) combine the melted butter and brown sugar. When fully combined add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until fully combined and light in color.

Step 3: In a small bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk to combine and remove any lumps.

Step 4: Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Don’t overmix or you will have a tougher texture to your end product.

Step 5: Fold the chocolate chips into the mixture and pour into the prepared pie dough.

Step 6: Bake the pie for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the pie comes out with only a few moist crumbs. Bake the pie for less time if you want the filling to be gooey.

Step 7: Remove from oven and allow to cool. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
