Brownie Pie

I’ve made oh-so-many of these pies over the years. As has my mom. And my grandmother. They’re what sustained me through the first half of college (and much of the second half). I lived off Mt. Dew and brownie pie. And while I personally wouldn’t recommend the diet (though I did stay skinny with my sugar tremors), I do highly recommend that you whip up one of these this instant! Two of the main reasons this became my go-to sweet: 1) all of the items were generally already in my pantry or refrigerator, 2) I could literally whip this up before the oven pre-heated. Twenty minutes plus pre-heat time, and I had instant sweetness gratification.

Brownie Pie
Serves anywhere from 1 to 6
Gluten free alternative at end

1 stick butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash of salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter a glass pie dish. Mix all ingredients until smooth, but do not overbeat. Pour into dish. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, until the center is just set. Remove and let cool before serving. Add ice cream and hot fudge sauce for a truly decadent treat.

Gluten free alternative: Use 1/2 cup Cup4Cup flour instead of regular flour. The texture actually comes out even better than regular flour.
