When I told my family about Pie Day Fridays, that I was posting a new pie recipe each Friday this summer, my daughter frowned and announced in a very disappointed tone that she didn’t like pie…
She wasn’t speaking from experience, though, because she’d really not tried pie much in her lifetime. So I set out to make a pie that my chocolate loving daughter wouldn’t be able to refuse.
Now once y’all see this recipe you’ll probably think “Oh that’s just too simple.” Some folks might even think it is so simple that it shouldn’t even be called a recipe, but I think most of y’all will be more in my mindset of “Oh that is so simple, it’s wonderful!”
If you’re like me and have never met a brownie you didn’t like, you’re gonna love this pie.
And yes, Katy Rose says she loves pie now so all is right in my little world :).
You’ll need: a pouch of brownie mix, chocolate chips, and a regular unbaked pie crust.
You’re also going to need whatever ingredients that brownie mix calls for so take a gander at the back and make sure you have that on hand. It’s usually just a bit of oil, an egg, and some water (which I usually substitute milk for but either way works fine).
Mix up brownie mix according to package directions.
Don’t you know that little hands helping make everything taste better?
Stir in chocolate chips.
That is me saying “this” with a spanish accent, which is as close as I can possibly come to speaking Spanish. I admire folks who can speak more than one language, but I’m not one of them. I think the hard drive on my brain is full This will be interesting next week as I venture to yet another Spanish speaking country with nothing beyond my nearly forgotten American Sign Language skills and an Alabama accent. Hopefully, you’ll be following my posts on that trip by tuning into my facebook page or checking out this post each day for new links to my journal entries.
