Cherry Cordial Brownie Pie (a special holiday dessert)

My husband loves cherry cordials, so I thought I’d make this Cherry Cordial Brownie Pie for him! I searched Pinterest, but nothing came up, so I had to come up with this recipe on my own. It turned out perfect, and I hope you like it as much as we do! Bonus: It’s so easy – it’s made with Pillsbury Fudge Brownie Mix! This makes a great dessert idea for the holidays, especially since you can usually only find these sold during the holidays (or maybe it’s just me?).

Cherry Cordial Brownie Pie

This “brownie pie” is perfect for cherry lovers.

Cherry Cordials

First, prepare the brownies in a bowl according to the instructions. 1 egg, 1/3 cup oil, and 2 tablespoons water. Grease and flour the pan well. Then spread the first layer of brownie batter into the pan. I used my round Rachael Ray 9-inch pans. Add the cherry cordials on top.

Cherry Cordial Batter Second Layer

Prepare the second batch of brownie mix and pour it over the top, covering all the cordials. Bake at 350º for 50 minutes. Let cool for about an hour. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and a little pink or cherry frosting if you wish (they’re good just plain by themselves, too)!

Take a bite and revel in the deliciousness!
