Brownie Truffle Pie: The Easiest Dessert in the World

Brownie Pie 2There are a few things I want to say about this dessert.  It tastes like an actual truffle.  It’s cooked in a flaky, deep dish pie crust.  It’s moist and rich and slathered in hot fudge.  It is the sort of dish you’d feed Oprah, if Oprah were coming over for dinner.  It’s just decadant enough to impress the likes of a great TV mogul like Ms. Winfrey.  But, of course, if Oprah were coming to dinner, there are a few things you shouldn’t say to her about this dessert.   You shouldn’t, for instance, tell her that it takes one-minute-and-four-seconds to make.  You shouldn’t tell her that you licked your fingers while pouring it into the crust.  And, you definitely shouldn’t let on that there are 6 fat slices left in the pan.  Because, this is the sort of dessert that will have you and everyone you know begging for more.  It’s good.  It’s dang good.  And, hey.  If it’s good enough for you, it’s sure as heckfie good enough to impress Oprah.
