Cream Cheese Brownie Pie
I have a cream cheese brownie that I make a lot,
and I love it….but.
It needs more…
Don’t get me wrong…It’s great by itself with its
gooey center and oh-so-fudgey chocolate goodness plus it’s topped with a cream cheese layer… but.
Sometimes I just can’t leave a recipe alone, and
I have to add more…
More chocolate, more cream cheese, maybe. I don’t know…
Peanut butter would be a nice addition, but no more peanut butter for this nut-allergy household. (
) Booohoooohoooo, my sweetÂ peanut butter, I miss you so!
I digress…Anyway, the addition I chose today was a nice
pie crust layer. It was quite tasty! Since it has a pie crust, we’ll call it a pie. I hope you enjoy it!

1 unbaked refrigerated pie crust
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place pie crust in pie pan.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt chocolate chips, butter, and 3/4 cup sugar stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.
Whisk in 2 eggs and vanilla.
Add flour, baking powder,and salt until well combined.
Pour brownie mixture into prepared pie crust.
In a small bowl, mix together softened cream cheese and powdered sugar.
Whisk 1 egg into cream cheese mixture.
Pour cream cheese layer over brownie layer and swirl with knife.
Bake pie for 50-55 minutes or until center is set. Do not overbake. You want the center to be fudgey.
Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes before serving.
Serve warm with whipped topping or ice cream.
