Pumpkin Pie Swirled Brownie Tart


Ah the sweet smell of pumpkin pie and chocolate sneaking out of the oven. Doesn’t get much better than that!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Busy busy busy as usual around here with the boys sweaty soccer games and lots of running around. I was cracking up at the movie theater Friday night. My girlfriend and I went to see “Fame” and couldn’t help feeling so old! We were the only ones in the entire theater that wasn’t cheering and clapping throughout the various parts of the movie. At least it was entertaining, guess I’m just a teenie bopper at heart!

Another simple Fall lovin’ recipe for you today. It’s a fabulous way to jazz up that trusty box of brownie mix you’ve got laying around the pantry. Swirl in some of my pumpkin pie recipe and out comes this gorgeous, looks like you’ve slaved all day in the kitchen, little slices of heaven. Top each slice with some cinnamon spiced cream cheese and you are good to go. Enjoy!




Pumpkin Pie Swirled Brownie Tart

2 rolls Pillsbury pie crust, thawed (or use your own pie crust recipe)

2 boxes brownie mix (8×8 inch size)

1 Cup pumpkin, from can like Libby’s

1/4 Cup granulated sugar

1/4 Cup evaporated milk

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 egg beaten


4 oz softened cream cheese

1/2 Cup powdered sugar

1 Tablespoon milk

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll pie dough from packaging and press into 2 tart pans with removable bottoms or 2 pie pans work just fine too. If you are using a pie pan make sure it’s not a deep dish style, the brownie mix will not fill to the top. With a fork, poke holes into the bottom of each crust then bake the pie crusts for 15 minutes then remove from oven. Prepare each brownie batter according to package directions. Pour each of the mixes into your tart or pie pan.

2. In a large bowl beat the pumpkin, sugar, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and egg until well combined. Divide into 2 equal parts and dollop spoonfuls over each brownie pie. Take a knife and carefully swirl pumpkin pie into brownie batter without over swirling. You should see swirls. Be careful not to run your knife too far down tearing the crust. Bake for 35-38 minutes or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean when poked in the center of the brownie pie. Remove and let cool completely before slicing.

3. In a large bowl mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk and cinnamon until smooth and creamy. Place dollops over each slice of pie. Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy!

    Wow – I really should read the recipe carefully. Just saw the first part where you clearly state 2 pans. Never mind! Have a great holiday.

    I love your blog and have made a lot of your recipes. Im making this tart and am a little confused. Its 2 brownie mixes – is that 2 mixes in one tart? Or does it make 2 tarts? I bake gluten free so with a gf pie crust, this is a great recipe for me to make!

    Jenny, I am amongst your biggest fans….. your recipes are sinful and delish – I say we write the food network and replace Sandra Lee with YOU!

    Now, we all wonder how you stay so thin with this stuff around!

    Holy cow! just add coconut and oreos and i think you will have covered all of my favorite food groups!! :]] awesome – totally making this for my work friends tomorrow!!! Thanks for all you blog, xoxo!

  6. It’s official. You are dangerous. I see why you take all the gold in so many cooking contests! I tried doing the Pillsbury again this year – with lots of research, blah, blah, blah, and they still didn’t pick me. I thought my recipe was good but maybe it was too plain. I’m going to share this recipe with two pumpkin/chocolate loving friends. More followers for you!

  7. Holy cow! I’m so excited! I hope to make this next weekend- you can’t have too many pumpkin/fall recipes!! Do you think it would be just as good with homemade brownies (I used my last mix already. haha)? What would be different if I made them homemade?

  8. WOW! That’s the best way to describe this! This looks incredible!!!! Just when I think you’ve come up with the best thing ever, you post something like this! LOVE IT!

  9. This looks amazing! I am not used to the pumpkin-chocolate combo (we don’t do a lot of pumkpinpie in Norway), but this has got to be tried out! Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Yumm! This looks so good. I just started really enjoying pumpkin pie and other desserts…this looks amazing! Maybe I can make a pumpkin convert of my husband with this brownie!
