Steve Paterson's men now face Falkirk in the next round after this impressive win over Dundee.
Aberdeen started brightly and then took the lead after just five minutes with Chris Clark beating two defenders on the edge of the area before firing a shot into the corner past Julian Speroni.
The lead was short-lived as Dundee levelled matters four minutes later with Steven Robb netting from close range after Dons keeper David Preece had pushed out Nacho Novo's powerful shot.
Aberdeen restored their lead on 77 minutes with Markus Heikkinen netting for the visitors.
The Dons made the game safe a minute from time with David Zdrilic grabbing a third, but there was still time for Novo to pull a goal back in stoppage time although it was nothing more than a consolation.
