I make it in a 10-inch pie pan. This makes 12 slices. I don't use the chocolate syrup. It's also good with salted caramel ice cream.
You could put this in a square baking dish and it would be brownies. They are good and I served them with ice cream. Thought the chocolate syrup was too much. Next time will put all the pecans in the mix. A definite repeat.
After reading reviews, I must have done something very wrong. I followed the directions exactly as printed and my pie came our dry and hard and almost tasteless. Please someone tell me what I did wrong. I'm puzzled because it came out so different from other reviews. Help!!
My 12 year old son made this as part of our Thanksgiving meal. It was a big hit and he was proud of his baking skills.
I've been making this since it came out in 2001, and it is the best brownie-like dessert ever. Everyone loves this recipe. I have made it for an easy dessert and also for fancier dinners.
This is an outstanding recipe. I even substituted half of the flour with white whole wheat flour and it was still wonderful.
This is SO rich and fudgy!! My husband and I loved it!! And, it is very easy to make! This is a definite keeper! TIP: I rather a smooth texture in the middle and nuts on top, so I poured the mix into the pie plate and then sprinkled pecans on top before baking.
