Recipe By Mike Johnston, Savory Spice founder

What started out as a chocolate pecan pie idea turned into a nutty, mocha-like brownie filling baked into a flaky pie crust. It's pretty awesome with ice cream!

Recipe Notes

*If making a homemade pie crust (which we highly recommend), refrigerate it after rolling it out and lining the pie pan with it. This will help keep the butter cool and produce a flakier cooked crust. The pie can be made 1 day ahead and chilled. Bring to room temp before serving.


1 (9-inch) premade pie crust, uncooked*

2 cups whole mixed nuts (your choice of pecan, cashew, hazelnut, walnuts, or macadamia)

2 cups dark brown sugar

4 large eggs

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts onto a baking sheet and toast on the middle rack of the oven for 8 to 10 min., stirring halfway through. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Increase heat to 425 degrees. Meanwhile, whisk together remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Coarsely chopped cooled, toasted nuts and fold into pie filling. Line a pie pan with the pie crust.
