Cute Brownie Pies for Football

After a lemon pie fail, I wracked my brain for a fun football way to do a pie. I’ve seen pudding pies before, so I didn’t want to do that. But then I remembered how much I love brownie pies. I’ve made them before, a few times: Turtle Brownie Pies and The Best Brownie Pie. There’s something about the combo of brownie and pie crust that just makes these so good!

If you’re looking for a quick, easy treat to make these are for you. Wether you top them with caramel or your favorite Hershey’s Kiss or a Rolo or a peanut butter cup, or make them into footballs, you will love these. They’re so versatile!

How to make Football Pies

  • You start with a package of pre-made crusts. I used Pillsbury, but you could also make your own (try my favorite pie crust recipe).
  • You cut your crusts to fit in a mini muffin pan and then fill them with brownie batter. You can make your own from my favorite brownie recipe or you can use a box mix.
  • Once they’re cooked and cooled you pipe on the laces.

Expert Tips

  • Skip the laces on top and add a Hershey’s Kiss, peanut butter cup, or Rolo!
  • Use melted white chocolate or vanilla butter cream frosting to make the laces.
  • Store these in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze them for up to 3 months.

Mini Football Brownie Pies

5 from 1 vote
Football Pies are mini brownie pies decorated like footballs – perfect to celebrate the Super Bowl!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Yield 36 pies
Serving Size 1 pie

Ingredients
 

  • 1 package refrigerated pie crusts (pack of two)
  • 1 box brownie mix plus ingredients to make the brownies
  • Vanilla frosting homemade or store-bought

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Unroll one pie crust and use a 2 1/2” round cookie cutter to cut circles of dough, re-rolling as needed. Spray mini muffin tins with cooking spray (I like to use the kind with flour in it) and press one round in each cavity. Repeat with second crust in box. You will get about 36. Chill until ready to fill.
  • Prepare brownie mix according to the package directions. Remove crusts from refrigerator and fill each cavity with 1 tablespoon brownie batter. (You’ll have some leftover. You can bake the leftover as cupcakes or in a loaf pan and use for brownie pops or just eat it with a fork.)
  • Bake pies for about 15 minutes, until the crust is browned. Let them cool completely before frosting.
  • Once cooled, a gentle urging from a butter knife will help the pies pop out of the muffin pans. Place your vanilla frosting in a sandwich baggie and cut off a teeny tiny bit of the tip. Pipe laces onto your pies and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Skip the laces and top with a peanut butter cup, Hershey’s Kiss, or Rolo.
  • Use melted white chocolate for the laces if you don’t want to use frosting.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
