Yup, you saw that right. A second delicious #BloggerCLUE reveal. And this one’s another dessert, and has chocolate. It’s a glorious Brownie Pecan Pie.
One of the things I’ve noticed with Thanksgiving pies is that they’re not really very kid-friendly. Sophie, for instance, doesn’t like pumpkin or pecan and can take or leave the standard apple fare.
So, as I was perusing Wendy’s blog, A Day In the Life On the Farm, I stopped dead in my tracks when I landed on the Brownie Pecan Pie.
Who’s Wendy, you ask? Well, I’m more than happy to tell you. Wendy and her husband are retired police officers who moved to a 12-acre plot of land and turned into a thriving farm. Along with her delicious food, Wendy share stories that range from raising the animals to what it’s like being grandparents for the first time.
The Brownie Pecan Pie is just one example of Wendy’s creativity and the delicious comfort food found on her blog. As soon as I saw it, I pulled out my pie plate and got baking.
This is SO easy! I used my microwave to melt the chocolate and butter together and didn’t even bother with a stand mixer, opting for a whisk instead. The pie came together quickly and was in the oven in a matter of minutes.
What’s not to love? As I suspected, Sophie inhaled her slice and it solidified the thought I had had earlier; the youngsters around the holiday table need a kid-pie and Wendy’s Brownie Pecan Pie is the perfect choice.

About The Group
As you know, over this past year the second Wednesday of the month has been reserved for the Blogger C.L.U.E. Society, a group of food bloggers who play a game together; sneaking around each other’s sites and surprising one another with the dishes we make from what we find. It’s our chance to have fun together and since you’re here, you get to be a part of the game. I’d love it if you’d take a minute and check out the other players. Heck, you may even find the person who got Taking On Magazines as their blog before I do. If you do discover who it was, let me know, okay?
