Brownie Pie

Pin It

Good morning friends! How's your Sunday?

I didn't get much sleep last night because of a certain Smalls hogging the bed. So I woke up a little *cranky* today.
Nothing that caffeine can't fix. So after making a double shot soy latte, I also made scrambled eggs with a 14 grain toast (Smart balance on top).

Then I went for my 3 mile run today while hubby took Smallsie out for his morning walk. I think this is the "fastest" 3 miles I've done (8:59 pace).

Last night's dinner was homemade pizza with store bought dough.

DD made hers with diced tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, pepperoncini and olives.
I made ours with a little olive oil, mozzarella cheese, spinach, tomatoes, olives, red bell peppers and after it came out of the oven I topped it with a little Romano cheese and basil ~ sort of a modified margherita pizza.
And for dessert, you have to make this ☟.

Brownie Pie (adapted from Barefoot Contessa)


6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
8 oz Baking squares (semi-sweet)
3 large eggs
1 cup organic sugar
1 packet Starbucks Via 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 chopped walnuts

1. Grease and flour a 9-inch pie pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Melt the butter in a double boiler. Add baking squares, remove from the heat, and stir until the chocolate melts. Set aside to cool completely.
3. In a separate bowl, 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, and the walnuts. Fold the flour mixture into the batter until just combined. Pour into the pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the center is puffed (the top may crack). The inside will still be very soft. Cool to room temperature before removing the sides of the tart pan
4. Option is to drizzle with more melted chocolate or top with powdered sugar.

7 days before next half-marathon!
