How to Make Pecan Pie Brownies
This easy ooey gooey pecan pie brownies recipe comes together in just five simple steps. Follow these steps to have tasty and rich brownies.
Step 1: Preheat your oven and prepare your baking pan.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While your oven is preheating spray your 13×9 baking pan with nonstick baking spray. Or you can use line your pan with parchment paper for easy removal.
Step 2: Make your brownie batter
Mix your brownie batter following the directions on the box. Bake your brownies at HALF of the time listed on the box. This can range from 18 minutes to 30 minutes to check your brownie mix time.
Step 3: Make your pecan pie topping
With an electric mixer blend the sugar, corn syrup, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Mix completely. Use a large spoon to add in the chopped pecans.
Step 4: Top the brownies
Remove the brownies from the oven. Spoon the pecan filling on top of the brownies. Use an offset spatula to even the top layer of the filling. By running it lightly across the top of the pecan pie filling until it is smooth and even.
Step 5: Bake the brownies again
Return the brownies to the oven. Continue to bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes. The filling will jiggle in the middle as you move the baking pan. Once a toothpaste comes out clean your brownies are done. Take out of the oven and allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting and serving.
Chocolate Chips: Add in 1/2 to 3/4 cup of chocolate chips to your brownie batter for an extra chocolate taste.
Nuts: Do you like nuts in your brownies? Add in 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to your brownie batter for extra crunch.
If you want thick brownies, use two boxes of brownie mix instead of one. Just a note though, that if you are using two boxes of brownies will you will need to increase the cook time on the box.
It is important to check the cook time on your box of brownie mix. This is because baking times vary greatly by different boxed mixes. Also, baking times can vary based on the type of pan you use. Glass vs metal. So, check your brownie mix for baking times.
Do you want to be able to fit your brownies out of your pan to cut them cleanly and evenly? Line your pan with parchment paper, and then spray the parchment paper with cooking spray. Once your brownies have completely cooled remove them by listing the parchment paper. Place the brownies on a cutting board and cut into even squares.
Do you have questions about these brownies? Here the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
Store your brownies on the counter for up to five days. Just keep your brownies away from heat sources as they can dry them out faster.
If you brownies turn out they are either over baked or you overmixed them.
Yes, these brownies freeze well for up to three months! I like to wrap them individually in plastic wrap before freezing so I can pull them out one at a time. To thaw place frozen brownies on the counter for one to two hours or until thawed.
