Pecan Pie Brownies
1 (2-pound) frozen pecan pie, thawed
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cups (11.5-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chunks
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Vegetable cooking spray
Cut pie into cubes. Set aside.
Microwave 1/2 cup butter and chocolate chunks in a glass bowl at HIGH 1 minute. Stir and microwave 1 more minute. Stir until mixture is smooth.
Beat chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, milk, and half of pie cubes at low speed with a heavy-duty stand mixer until blended.
Add flour and baking powder, stirring with a wooden spoon until blended. Stir remaining half of pie cubes into batter. (Batter will be thick.) Spoon batter into a 13- x 9-inch pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350º for 50 minutes. Cool brownies completely on a wire rack. Cut into triangles or squares.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Mrs. Edward's Frozen Pecan Pie
