Under the Apron Strings: Easy Brownie Pie for Thanksgiving Dessert

This fudgy, deep-dish brownie pie is my go-to dessert for entertaining. It comes together quickly, which makes it perfect for easing the stress of holiday baking. Using a pre-made crust makes it all the easier.

Over the years, I have tested many different brownie pie recipes but always come back to this one, which I top off with fresh whipped cream or homemade ice cream and a fresh sprig of mint.


1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 cup salted butter, melted

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 regular frozen or pre-made pie crust (9 inch)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring the pie crust to room temperature.

  • Press crust into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch ceramic pie pan. Prick the bottom and sides of the crust with tines of a fork.

  • Bake for 4 minutes. Remove from oven.

  • In the order stated above, mix ingredients using a whisk just until fully combined.

  • Do not over mix.

  • Pour chocolate combination into par-baked crust.

  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until set.

  • Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
