This pie is EXCELLENT! If your looking for a delicious chocolate fix, here it is! This is great to bring to a friends for dessert after dinner, or to a party at work. Awesome for any type of get together actually! I serve with a big scoop or two of French Vanilla ice cream, just to put a smile on everyones face, and add a few extra calories :) Prep time does not include time it takes to make the pie crust, or the chilling time.
- Prepare pastry shell. Chill until ready to use.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and 1 of the eggs. Beat until smooth. Set aside.
- In large bowl, combine brownie mix, oil, water and remaining 2 eggs,.

- Spread 1/2 cup brownie mixture in bottom of crust-lined pan. Spoon.
- and carefully spread cream cheese mixture over brownie layer.

- If necessary, cover edge of crust with strips of foil after 15-20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. (Pie may have cracks on surface.).

I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! (I would have taken a picture, but it was gobbled up too quickly! ) I omitted the nuts because one of my guests has a nut allergy, and topped it with ganache instead of hot fudge sauce, but otherwise made it according to the directions in the recipe. I will make this again!!
Came out beautiful and delicious. Only change I made was to use walnuts instead of pecans because they were cheaper. PS I have a pic but I can't get it to upload.
I can't believe this only has 1 review! Aren't there any other chocoholics out there besides us? :) We thought this was one of the best pies we ever indulged in, and my DD told me to hide the recipe where I knew it was at all times! This will be made again and enjoyed just as much the second time around!
