Reviews for Great American Brownie Pie
"liked the extra ingredients - cherries, chips, nuts - didn't care for the texture, a little dry, so i served it with a dab of raspberry sauce."
"I have not made this recipe yet...I know, I know...BUT, people are saying these are not good brownies. Well, surprise!!! It is not a brownie recipe, but a BROWNIE pie recipe!!! And, if you don't like all the sugar...then just don't make it! DUH!"
"Karo Corn Syrup is NOT High Fructose...this is my choice as it is not processed to that stage of high fructose."
"mullenpm please just make your own recipe. this site continues to have rude comments about recipes and those who submit."
"This recipe contains not only sugar but high fructos corn syrup. Outrageous. A good brownie recipe does not need all that sugar."
"I made these one night for my husband....needless to say, this is the only brownie he wants. When we go to friends gatherings, he always suggests I make these. People are always asking for the recipe.Absolutely delightful !!"
"this is a great pie and my choc-o-ohlic husband loved it, very easy to make also. a winner"
