Chocolate Chip Brownie PieCuisinart Original Recipe
2 large eggs
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
½ cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts
Place the rack in position B and preheat the toaster oven to 350ºF on bake setting. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie tin with cooking spray. Beat the eggs in a medium bowl until frothy. Stir in the sugars, beat until smooth. Stir in the melted butter. Add the flour, cocoa and salt; stir to combine. Add the vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts; stir. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until just barely set (pie will not test done in the center – do not over bake). Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a rack before cutting. If you wish to serve it warm, let it cool to set, then re-warm gently for about 10 to 5 minutes at 200ºF. Cut into wedges and serve. Very good when topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt, and a
drizzle of fudge or chocolate sauce.
Variation: Substitute milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter or butterscotch chips for the chocolate chips; substitute other nuts such as peanuts, hazelnuts or almonds.
