Classic Brownies + Double Crusted Blueberry Pie

I love brownies.  Well, let me clarify that statement.  I love all of Dorie's brownies.  We were recently traveling in and around Denver and stopped at a bakery/deli.  There was a request for chocolate raspberry bread pudding (this was good, but I kept thinking how Dorie's Apple Apple Bread Pudding is not just good, it's fabulous).  There was also a request for a brownie.  This brownie was a real disappointment and I think it was, as my husband put it, "the fat is off".  I'm quite sure that if they used butter, they didn't use all butter.  It did not satisfy.

Classic Brownies
So it was with great pleasure that I had an excuse to bake Dorie Greenspan's Classic Brownies along with the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers.  Delicious!  Not too cakey and not too gooey.  In other words, just right.

This week I pulled out of the freezer the Double Crusted Blueberry Pie that I made before we left for Denver.  What a lucky stroke that was, as blueberry season is just over here and yet we are extending the season by enjoying this delightful pie.

  1. I agree, when I buy a brownie, I am often disappointed! So I buy very few brownies because I can make wonderful recipes like this. this was classic, this was delicious.
    Your pie looks yummy too.
    Have a great day.

  2. I don't buy many baked goods or desserts these days. Baking from Dorie's recipes has definitely spoiled me. It's harder to enjoy things when I'm thinking that I could make them better myself. =) Your brownies and your pie both look delicious!

  3. Wow everything looks so good! I loved all the recipes you made and especially enjoyed these wonderful moist Brownies!!

  4. Oh I love a good buttery brownie too and your pie looks incredible (it's one of my favorite recipes from the book!) Thanks for baking with me!

  5. I love freezer treats! And the brownies look wonderful. You do get to be a bit of a snob about these things when you've been baking long enough.

  6. Making Dorie's recipes has definitely made me picky about the way store bought treats taste. Loved the brownies. And that blueberry pie made me a fruit pie lover when I made it. So good!!

  7. a delicious post indeed. I recently made the blueberry pie and LOVED it.

    I really liked the classic brownies recipe.

  8. These were good brownies, weren't they. Definitely better than any bakery brownie!!

    Pie looks perfect!!
