Y’all need to stop what you’re doing and RUN to your kitchen to make this pie. I’m serious, GO!

It’s fudgy. It’s indulgent. It’s over-the-top chocolatey. It’s gooey. It’s easy yet from scratch. By looking at the pictures you probably think, “Wow, I bet that’s so rich I couldn’t finish a whole slice!”

You’d be wrong if you thought that. Very, very wrong. Try it. Cut a slice and try to just eat a bite of The BEST Brownie Pie.

I dare you.

Best Brownie Pie Recipe that's completely from scratch!

I really can’t get over how good this was. I mean, I love my brownie recipe and I love my pie crust recipe. So, together, I knew I’d love it. But it still blew my mind.

What is a brownie pie?

It’s the pie of a chocolate lovers dreams: a pie crust with a gooey brownie baked inside. This is one heck of a chocolate pie recipe!

Because of the crust, the brownie stays gooey, like the center brownies in the pan. If center brownies are your jam, then this pie is going to be your favorite.

Making Brownie Pie from scratch

I love using box mixes, I use them all the time, but sometimes I just feel like getting into the kitchen and doing it all. It makes me feel like a super woman…or something. Is that just me?

This recipe starts with my perfect all butter pie crust. You can also use a Pillsbury crust if you prefer, but my crust recipe is so good.

Then I used my classic brownie recipe to fill the pie.

For topping, simply add ice cream and hot fudge!

How to Make The BEST Brownie Pie

Have I convinced you that you MUST make this pie today?? Good, then I’ve done my job. Get to it!

  • If you are in a rush and want to use a prepared pie crust, go ahead. Just make sure to use one that will fit in a 9″ pie plate (like Pillsbury).
  • I like my crust a little under done, but if you like a crunchy bottom, partially blind bake your crust before adding the brownie batter.
  • You’re also allowed to use a box brownie mix, I won’t tell.
  • You can tell from the pictures that the center is ooey gooey fudgy. Some people might say it’s super under done, I say it’s perfect. I give a wide range of bake times for this pie. If you want it more done, just cook it longer. But know that you’re probably not going to get a very done brownie texture with the crust under there, especially with my brownie recipe. Ooey Gooey Brownie Lovers Only, please. 🙂
  • Mix it up: add 1 cup of any chopped candy to the batter, or even chocolate chips!!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Yield 10 servings
Serving Size 1 serving


  • 1 recipe All Butter Pie Crust (or one refrigerated crust from a pack of 2)
  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all purpose flour


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare pie crust as directed and press into a 9” pie plate. Chill until filling is ready.
  • Note: if you want a crunchy bottom crust, partially bake the crust before adding the filling: Preheat oven to 425°F. Line your crust with parchment paper and add pie weights or dry beans. Bake for 15-20 minutes, remove the beans/parchment and add the filling.
  • Place baking chocolates and butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth (about 2 minutes depending on your microwave).
  • Stir sugar into chocolate mixture, then stir in eggs until well mixed. Add the vanilla, cocoa, and salt and stir until smooth, then carefully stir in the flour.
  • Pour batter into the pie crust. Place pie onto a cookie sheet. Cover the pie crust with a pie crust shield or strips of foil. Bake for 38-48 minutes, until the top is cracked. The pie shown in the photos was baked for 38 minutes (a toothpick came out wet) and the center is very gooey, which is how we like it. The center won’t turn to a crumbly brownie texture because of the crust – it’ll stay pretty fudgy, but if you like it more done, cook it longer, until less wet more crumbs stick to the toothpick. Your choice! Just be sure to remove the foil strips or pie shield after about 20-25 minutes of baking so that it has time to become slightly golden brown.
  • Cool the pie completely before slicing and serving with ice cream or whipped cream. Store covered at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze slices for up to one month.

  1. I’ve been cooking it for 50 minutes at 350 and it’s still completely liquid!! Not sure how long I need to cook this for!?

    1. Liquid as in hasn’t changed a bit or as in testing with a toothpick? Once the top is set looking and it’s only slightly jiggly it’s done – it’ll set up more as it cools.

  2. This pie is soooooo good. I make it quite often to take to work. I’ve added everything from nuts to peanut butter chips. Last year for Christmas I added chopped Andes mints! This is a home run second only to your peanut butter chess pie. Thanks Dorothy.

  3. thanks loads for sharing! just made this for my sister’s birthday and everyone was so impressed! btw i used up some leftover pie crust i made last month and frozen for instances like these 🙂 i added walnuts & that was awesome too! i think i’ll parbake my crust next time so i can cut the baking time slightly to maybe 30 minutes coz i baked my pie for 33 minutes and it wasn’t that fudgy and i had some undercooked crust too :/ but the taste was still pretty good i really though!

  4. I made this pie for Thanksgiving last year and it was so delicious I almost didn’t realize that the filling is pretty much exactly the brownie recipe I’ve always searched for, sometimes to the point of obsession. I doubled your recipe and baked it in a 9 x 13″ pan. I’ve made tiny changes over time (a little more cocoa, a little less flour, and very small amounts of baking powder and espresso powder), but I finally have my be-all, end-all, never need to try another brownie recipe brownies! You have restored my sanity. Thank you!

  5. Yeah I’d 1000% rather eat this pie than watch football! It looks so gooey and chocolatey! Pinningggg

  6. I love brownies that are super soft and gooey in the center and pie too!  These look absolutely perfect, Dorothy!

  7. I’m running, I’m running…. Must. Make. This. Pie!!!  I’m seriously drooling here!!

  8. Can I just drown out all of my worries with this brownie pie? I think I will. Wow. This looks like the bomb. I’m a football fan, so I did watch the game (even though my team wasn’t in the game). I also totally devoured some guacamole, tacos, and soup. Not mad about it! 🙂
