Brownie Pie

September means the start of pie season.

I guess you could have pie anytime you want, but don’t you normally eat a bunch of pie in the fall/holiday months?

I love a good pumpkin pie (the marshmallow pumpkin pie I made last year is AMAZING) and pecan pie also has a special place in my heart. Fruit pies, like apple and cherry, are some of my favorites.

But chocolate pie…CHOCOLATE pie…that is a pie worth making.

You’ve got several chocolate pie recipes to choose from (silk, meringue, etc) but might I suggest something better? A brownie pie is just what you need.

It’s the best of both desserts—a smooth, chewy brownie inside a pie crust. Top it off with whipped cream or ice cream and you’ve got one heckuva dessert.

Enjoy!
