Marbled Brownie Fudge Pie

Cream Cheese Filling:
1 package cream cheese (8-oz.), softened
5 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Brownie Crust:
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash salt

Fudge Frosting:
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
Dash salt
1-3/4 cups confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup chopped toasted pecans

For Filling: In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with butter; add sugar, eggs (one at a time), flour and vanilla. Beat until smooth; set aside.

For crust: Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs (one at a time), cocoa, flour, vanilla and salt. Lightly grease two 9-inch pie pans. Spread 1/4 of batter in bottom of each pan. Pour half of the filling into each pan, spreading almost to edges. Dollop remaining batter over filling; swirl with a knife to "marble". Bake at 325 for 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool on racks at least 15 minutes.

For Frosting: Combine sugar and cocoa in a saucepan. Add butter, milk, corn syrup and salt and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil vigorously 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Beat in confectioners sugar and vanilla. Stir in nuts. Cool 10 minutes; pour onto warm pies, spreading to cover. Serve warm.
