Birthday Brownie Pecan Pie

Can someone tell me if it's a sign of a good cook, or a bad one that I've already burned my hand twice on the oven this week??? Or maybe just an overzealous, not paying particular attention to the oven cook? You be the judge!

It's been a while, I know, but with my birthday coming up tomorrow I decided to do some baking and make myself this yummy recipe that I found on Bakeralla

So here it goes!  Check out the recipe below. I also didn't have frozen pie shells so I just used the sweet pastry cases off the shelf. 

First things first - before you start, you have to prepare yourself, ie.: 
Brownie Pecan Pie


1/4 cup melted butter

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 Tablespoon self-rising flour

1/4 cup light corn syrup (a.k.a. liquid glucose according to Brits, it took me a long time to figure this out)

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

2 cups pecans
1 package brownie mix and ingredients listed on the box
2 frozen regular pie shells
            Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
            Place brown sugar in a large bowl and work out lumps. Add flour and stir together until the flour disappears.
            Add corn syrup and vanilla. Stir until thoroughly until combined.
            Add melted butter. Fold into mixture until it disappears.
            Loosely beat two eggs in a separate bowl and fold into mixture until the eggs disappear.
            Stir in pecans and set aside.

            Prepare brownie batter as instructed on package.

            Remove two frozen pies shells from freezer and divide brownie batter evenly between the two. 

           Spoon pecan pie mixture evenly between the two pie shells.

           Bake brownie regular pie shell version for about 35 minutes.

           Remove from oven and cool.

The Finished product!!!!

A slice of deliciousness!!
