Pecan Brownie Pie

This recipe first caught my eye because it was named "Kentucky Pie"!  Half of my heart is in Kentucky, so I thought I'd give it a try.  (My Mom's side of the family is from Kentucky and I'd spend weeks at a time during the summer there growing up!)    Then...I looked at the ingredients and saw that it had both chocolate and pecans in it and I knew right then it would be a winner!

Well, turns out it's pretty much a brownie in a pie crust...how cool is that!  You just serve this warm with some vanilla ice cream drizzled with hot fudge and topped with pecans and you've got a dessert that will leave you happy!:)
