Pie #62- Fudge Brownie March 17, 2013

Here’s another super easy pie to make. This recipe I made up in my head.

I made a quick pie crust from my Mom’s recipe.

(JAN) MOM’S PIE PASTRY

  • 1 cup flour + 2 tablespoons
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup Crisco vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons cold water

Mix flour, salt and oil with a fork. Add water and form into a ball. Roll between two pieces of wax paper. Peel top layer of wax paper off and flip other layer of wax paper and rolled dough onto a 9″ pie pan. Form decorative crust. 

Next, I had the kids  make a box of brownie mix. We put the brownie mixture into the pie crust and then baked it in the oven at 350 degrees  for 35 minutes and WHALAAAA a fun, easy dessert!

Our neighbor, Dalia, participated in the pie making this time. Henry also helped. (I think he is really beginning to like pies- or at least he is trying them more often.) This one is pretty hard not to love.

  1. This was a “Hey, there’s no dessert!” kinda pie. But it came together so quickly you’d hardly know there wasn’t a ton of thought put into it. Sure can taste the brownie love!
