Have you ever sat down to watch tv and started craving something sweet? That is exactly what happened last night after dinner. So, Brandon asked me was there anything sweet in the kitchen. I replied, “Maybe, if you count a can of peaches as something sweet.” That was not the answer nor the solution he was wanting to hear.

Within a few minutes, he was gone to the kitchen in search for a recipe. He grabbed a local church’s cookbook that was given to me by his mother a few Christmases ago and flipped to the dessert section. He pulled out a recipe from his past that he cooked when he lived at home. That recipe was called Brownie Pie. And, I will say that it was everything brownie and everything pie. It was very delicious, chocolatey, and fluffy.

Since I already have your mouth watering (if I haven’t, then scroll down to the picture and you will get the same effect), here is the recipe:

Brownie Pie

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1/2 cup flour
3 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 325. Place eggs, sugar, butter flour, cocoa, vanilla, and salt in small mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixers or 4 minutes. Stir in nuts. Pour into greased pie plate. Bake for 30 minutes or until center poked with toothpick comes out clean. The pie will settle as it cooks. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Brandon added some chocolate chips because we had about 2 Tablespoons of cocoa and he didn’t want to miss out on that good chocolate flavor. He also omitted the nuts because we were out of stock. Here are the ending results:

Yes for whipped cream! The best part is that you can eat this pie any time of day. I had a piece for breakfast this morning with whipped cream and almond milk. It just made my morning that much brighter.
