Brownie Pecan Pie:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup toasted, chopped pecans chopped pecans
  • Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for serving

Instructions

To make the pie crust:

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt.
  • Add the diced butter and blend in using two forks, your fingers, or a dough blender until combined with a crumbly texture and no pieces are larger than the size of a pea. Slowly add the cold water just until the dough comes together.
  • Form the dough into a flattened disc, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.
  • Preheat oven to 350˚C (180˚C) and lightly grease a 9 inch (23 cm) pie pan.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the refrigerated dough into an even, thin circle about 12 inches wide. Transfer to the prepared pie pan and decorate the edges as desired. Refrigerate until filling comes together.

To make the Brownie Pecan Pie:

  • In a large microwave safe bowl, add the butter and chocolate chips. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth. Stir in the granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla extract, coffee, and salt until smooth. Fold in the chopped pecans.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pie dish and smooth the top. Place on rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven until the crust is golden and the filling is set, but still gooey, 30-35 minutes.
  • Allow to rest for an hour before serving with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
