Cream Cheese Brownie Pie

This is the perfect pie for any chocolate lover!

1 9 inch deep dish pie crust
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 T sugar
1 t vanilla
3 eggs
1 box brownie mix (not the family size)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 T water
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
chocolate sauce (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and 1 of the eggs on medium speed until smooth; set aside. In large bowl, beat brownie mix, oil and remaining two eggs with a spoon till well mixed. Spread enough brownie mixture to cover the bottom of the pie crust- about 1 cup. Spoon and carefully spread cream cheese mixture over brownie layer. Top carefully with remaining brownie mixture and spread carefully. Sprinkle with pecans. Take a butter knife and twist to swirl the two batters. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until center is puffed and crust is lightly browned. Cool completely and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Serve with cool whip or ice cream.

  1. At the restaurant I used to work at, my boss would make this kind of pie only instead of the cream cheese layer, she would make some sort of peanut butter layer. RICH, but OMG good! :o)

  2. This is in my oven right now, It smells great! I'm not sure I'm going to share it! Thanks for another great recipe. Tracie
