Brownie pie ala kooknet

Yield: 12 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Flour
¼ cup Sugar
3 tablespoons Unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon Salt
6 tablespoons Unsalted butter, cut into
12 pieces
½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 To 3 tablespoons cold water
Vegetable cooking spray
1 cup Hazelnuts
4 ounces Unsweetened chocolate
¼ pounds Unsalted butter, cut into
3 Eggs
1 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
⅔ cup Flour
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Baking powder
½ cup Whipping cream
½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Powdered sugar




1. To prepare the crust: Blend together the flour, sugar, cocoa and salt. Add the butter, working until crumbly. Stir in the vanilla and water, making a dough that holds together when pressed.

2. Spray a 9-inch glass pie pan with cooking spray. Press the dough over the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Set aside.

3. To prepare the filling: Put the hazelnuts into a small baking pan and toast in a preheated 350-degree oven 10 minutes. Remove from the pan. Cool slightly and put into a kitchen towel. Close the towel and rub together to remove the skins from the nuts. Chop nuts coarsely.

4. Melt the chocolate and butter in a small heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir to blend and cool slightly.

5. With an electric mixer, beat together the eggs and sugar until fluffy; beat in the vanilla, and then the flour, salt, and baking powder. Beat in the chocolate mixture. Stir in the nuts and pour into the crust.

6. Bake in a pre-heated 325-degree oven 25-30 minutes, until just done in the center. Cool on a rack.

7. Just before serving, beat the cream until soft peaks form. Beat in the vanilla and powdered sugar until softened. Serve a dollop of the cream on each wedge of pie.
