Food Friday: Brownie Pie Mix

This is a great gift to give someone and would be great for those end of the year teacher gifts everyone is trying to figure out about now. We made these in MOPS last week and they were a hit. I put the mix in a clear cellophane bag and tied it with a pretty ribbon.

Brownie Pie Mix

1 cup sugar

½ cup flour

¼ cup cocoa

Pinch of salt

½-3/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or chocolate chips

In a cellophane bag, pour in 1 cup sugar. Add 1/4 cup cocoa, then add 1/2 cup flour and pinch of salt. Pour 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (or substitute chocolate chips) into a small lightweight food storage bag. Twist bag and tie tightly with twine or ribbon, cutting off excess plastic bag end. Push lightly into the flour in the bag.

To make brownie pie:

Brownie pie mix

2 eggs

1 stick butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325°. Grease and flour a 9-inch pie plate. Whisk together 2 eggs in mixing bowl; add 4 ounces softened butter or margarine and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Remove bag of nuts or chocolate chips and set aside. Pour bag contents into mixing bowl. Mix to moisten ingredients then beat on high speed of electric mixer for 2 - 3 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Empty bag of nuts or chocolate chips into the batter and fold in. Spread batter in prepared pie plate. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until set. Cut into wedges and serve slightly warm with vanilla ice cream.
