Recipe: Decadent Brownie Pie

This recipe is an ‘Oldie but a Goodie’.   Decadent Brownie Pie!  Yum!  Ridiculously easy to make and the perfect chocolate fix.  Straight from my Mama’s cook book.


One 9’ pasty shell
6 oz. chocolate chips
½ stick butter or margarine
14 oz. can condensed milk
½ cup biscuit mix
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts
vanilla ice cream 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake pastry shell for 10 minutes and remove from oven to cool.  Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees. 

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips with butter. 

In a large mixing bowl beat chocolate mixture with condensed milk, biscuit mix, eggs and vanilla until smooth.  Add nuts and pour into the pastry shell.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until center is set.  Serve warm topped with ice cream.

My sweet friend, Sheila (aka Gypsy Biscuit here at Something’s Burning), who accompanied me on this trip over to Miss PW’s Ranchback in March, gave me this cook book. Isn’t she the sweetest Miss Thang! Miss Sheila remembered that I mentioned that I collect antique books.  And, she put together that love with my love for collecting recipes and Viola! Antique cook book find. I just love it. Take a look inside.

Im having flashbacks to my grandmothers kitchen just looking at it!

Isn’t that fun!  I’ve found several recipes I’m going to try and several excerpts from ‘back in the day’ on ‘how to be the proper hostess/cook/wife’ that had me laughing through tears.   Very Retro and what a treasure!  The book and my friend, Gypsy Biscuit.  You Rock, Woman!

🙂  Y’all Enjoy the Brownie Pie.

  1. That book is awesome! I was just thinking to myself of starting a cookbook collection since I have NO cookbooks and usually just get my recipes off line or magazines. I find this unnacceptable especially as an English major with a nose for the smell of book binding.

  2. I love that book. I look like that with all my friends when we sit around the kitchen table and drink–err–plan our meals;) I might just make this pie for my babies tonight;)

  3. You’ll have to let us know how it turns ou!

    How fun! I’ve got a ton of old cookbooks like that. You’ve just inspired me to pull some out and go through them again. They ARE virtual goldmines! There’s no telling what I’ll find this time through.
