Pecan Pie Brownies

These are not the desserts for you if you prefer cakey brownies. In fact, these brownies are thick, moist, and gooey throughout—a really indulgent treat for both chocolate and pecan pie fans.

These rich, flavorful brownies are made by baking a sheet of thick, chocolatey brownies, then topping it with a layer of pecan pie filling that has been lightly bourbon-infused.
