This evening found me baking 2 super-easy and rather mmmmm-worthy pies. I guess you could call me pie-ous (gong!). But seriously folks, what is better than a homebaked pie? How about 2 homebaked pies?
The brownie pie is fudgy and rich in texture and consistency. And the praline pie is strongly reminiscent of warm cookie dough. Second only to the deliciosity of these pies? The ease and brevity of these recipes.

Brownie Pie
Preheat oven to 350F. Melt 1 c. butter or marg. Stir in 2 c. sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla, 4 slightly beaten eggs until blended. Mix in 1 1/2 c. all purpose flour, 3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder, and 1/8 tsp. salt. Add 1 c. semi sweet choc chips and 1 c. toasted chopped walnuts. Spread into pie crust. Bake 45 mins. or until set.

Praline Pie
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix with electric mixer until well blended: 1/4 c. melted margarine/butter, 1 c. packed brown sugar, 3/4 c. all purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder. Then add 1 egg, 1 tsp. vanilla; mix well. Stir in 1 c. toasted chopped pecans. Pour into graham cracker pie crust. Bake for 30 mins. until center is set.
