I wanted to make dessert the other night, so I looked in the fridge to see what I had. This is what I came up with. Really easy and quick to make. The hardest part is letting it cool!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe takes two favorite desserts - brownies and cheesecake - and puts them into pie form. Plus, it's a peanut butter cheesecake that adds to the dish. The flavors of peanut butter and chocolate, coupled with the texture of a fudgy brownie and creamy cheesecake, make this pie irresistible. It's easy to make and a unique dessert everyone will be eager to try.

How To Make peanut butter cheesecake brownie pie

  • Pie crust pressed into a pie plate.
    Preheat oven to 350. Press room temperature pie crust into 9" pie pan. Set aside.
  • Milk and cream cheese in a mixing bowl.
    Cream milk and cream cheese with electric mixer on a lower speed until smooth.
  • Confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla in a bowl.
    Add confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix until blended.
  • Brownie batter prepared.
    Mix brownies as directed on box. Pour half of the brownie mix into prepared pie crust.
  • Cream cheese mixture poured over brownie batter.
    Next, spoon all of the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie layer.
  • Brownie batter poured over the cheesecake filling.
    Pour the rest of the brownie mixture on top. Smooth over with rubber spatula.
  • Covering the edges with aluminum foil.
    Cover the edges of pie with aluminum foil to prevent crust from over browning. Bake 35-40 minutes.
  • Foil removed from the pie plate.
    After 35-40 minutes, remove foil from pie and bake an additional 10-15 minutes (pie may crack on top, this is okay).
  • Pie on a cooling rack.
    Remove pie from the oven.
  • Chocolate chips sprinkled on top.
    Sprinkle with mini chips. Let pie cool completely (3 hours on the counter, hour and a half in the fridge). After the pie is cool, you can drizzle with the chocolate syrup if your boxed brownie included the chocolate packet.
  • Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownie Pie ready to be sliced.
    Slice and enjoy. Watch out! It's decadent.
