Servings 1 9" pie


  • 9" pie pan
  • Rolling Pin
  • mixing bowls with flexible silicone spatula or spoon and whisk


  • 1 store bought refrigerated pie crust dough
  • 12 tbsp (170g) unsalted butter
  • 4 oz. (113g) 70% or higher chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/4 c (250g) maple sugar sub granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp espresso powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 c (55g) dutch process cocoa powder
  • 3/4 c (90g) all purpose flour


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F (177 C). Remove the store bought pie crust from the fridge. Roll out the crust on a lightly floured surface to about 11" round and 1/8" thick.
    If the dough begins to stick, return to the fridge or freezer to chill for 15-20 minutes. Once rolled out, fit the dough into your tart or pie pan. Press into the pan along the bottom and sides. Build up a thicker crust around the edges by folding some of the excess onto itself.
    Place the pie pan in the fridge until the brownie filling is made.
  • Place the unsalted butter and chopped chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat the butter and chocolate for 1 minute. Carefully pull out the bowl.
    Stir the melted butter and partially melted chocolate until they are well combined. Heat again in 20 second increments, stirring in between until the butter and chocolate are fully melted and well combined. 
  •  Whisk in the sugar, espresso and salt until smooth and well combined. 
  • Whisk in the eggs until smooth and well combined. 
  • Whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth and well combined. 
  • Stir in the flour until smooth and well combined.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pie pan.
  • Bake at 350 F (177 C) for 40-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownie filling comes out with a few moist crumbs. The brownie filling may have some cracks forming around the edges as well.
    The brownie filling will continue to bake while cooling, so err on the side of slightly underbaking.
  • Cool in the pan set on a cooling rack for 30-45 minutes. Serve warm or room temperature with a dusting of powdered sugar, ice cream or salted maple caramel sauce.
