Brownie Pie
Adapted from Barefoot Contessa TV Show

This travels very well, and makes a great camp dessert. Serves 8


    6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
    3 1/4 cups (20 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
    3 extra-large eggs
    1 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 cup (4 ounces) chopped walnuts
    2 to 3 tablespoons heavy cream


Grease and flour a 9-pie pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a bowl set over simmering water. (Or in the microwave.) Add 2 cups of the chocolate chips, remove from the heat, and stir until the chocolate melts. Set aside to cool completely.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, coffee, and vanilla on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cooled chocolate. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, 1 cup of the chocolate chips, and the walnuts. Fold the flour mixture into the batter until just combined. Pour into the pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the center is puffed (the top may crack). The inside will still be very soft. Cool to room temperature.

Melt the remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips with the heavy cream and drizzle on top. Let cool before cutting into pie wedges if possible, or hide until you are ready to serve. ~ dlb
