Nutter Butter Nutella Cream Pie

Published November 27, 2011 by ciannucci

Who can honestly say they are not a fan of the wondrous goodness of the creamy hazlenut spread we know as Nutella? Nutella was actually introduced to me around the age of 10 by my italian neighbor. I used to go to her house to play and she always fed me a nutella sandwich. One sandwich and her house quickly became my second home. I have never heard of anyone say they do not like nutella. It is simply pure heaven. This year I am trying to see how many recipes I can actually create with nutella in it. Did I also mention I am a peanut butter lover? Mix these two ingredients and your life will be complete. Here is my first nutella recipe.

Nutter Butter Nutella Cream Pie

for the crust-
24 nutter butter cookies
1/4 cup butter

for the filling-
2-8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup nutella
1/2 cup whipping cream

for nutella ganache {optional}
1/4 cup nutella
1/4 cup cream {or more if you like a thinner ganache}

Directions:

Spray 9-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

{1}Place nutter butter cookies into food processor and grind until they are fine crumbs. Stir together with melted butter.

{2}Press into prepared pie plate. Place into refrigerator to chill.

{3}For the filling, whip cream cheese and sugar together until well blended. Stir in vanilla and nutella. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again briefly. Stir in cream and then increase speed and whip 3 minutes or until very thick.

{4}Pour into pie crust and smooth the top. Refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.

To serve, prepare nutella ganache by microwaving nutella and cream together until a thin sauce forms. Drizzle over pieces of pie.
