Just when you think I’ve run out of new pies to try!
Last year, I found a recipe for a Nutella pie, and Turkey immediately decided he wanted it to be “his” Thanksgiving pie. He liked it so much, he decided he wants it again this year, and I don’t blame him…it’s delicious. Of course, I’ve made my own little tweaks in the meantime, so here is my updated recipe!
For the filling:
- Pre-made Oreo pie crust
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 3/4 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
Beat cream cheese, Nutella, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. In another bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; fold into Nutella mixture. Add to crust and chill for 30 minutes.
For the topping:
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
- 2 tsp. butter
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 2 oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp. hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
In small saucepan, bring the cream, corn syrup, butter, and salt to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat. Add chocolate; let stand five minutes. Stir until smooth; cool to spreading consistency. Spread over pie; sprinkle with toasted hazelnuts. Chill for at least one hour.
