Brownie Walnut Pie

Sometimes you just need a quick-and-tasty dessert. This recipe is perfect for that, and it's kind of fun too (because who woulda thunk to make brownies in pie form?). Once you see how easy this is, you may want to add it to your Christmas baking list!

Recipe adapted from here.

1/2 cup butter
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 refrigerated pie crust
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
chocolate sauce and extra walnuts (or whatever you want to use as a topping)

1. In a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over very low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and cool for 20 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 350. Roll out pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie plate. Crimp edges.
3. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Add in sugar, flour, and vanilla, and mix until combined. 
4. Stir in the cooled chocolate mixture and nuts.
5. Pour filling into the pie crust. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
6. Top with a chocolate sauce drizzle and sprinkle with walnuts (or do whatever sort of topping you want... strawberries? Plain with vanilla ice cream?).
