Chocolate Hazelnut Pie

Remember back when I made Pistachio Ice Cream?  I promised more recipes with the goodies that Oh! Nuts had sent me.  Well I think it is time to share this delicious pie that I made with the Hazelnuts and Almond Flour.  This recipe was adapted from Giada.  I love her, we are on a first name basis :)  Anyway, I saw her make this years ago, and printed the recipe right away. I have just never had Hazelnuts around to try making it.  So that was first on my list when OH! Nuts contacted me.

I didn't really have a reason to make this when I did, so we called our neighbors over at 3:00 in the afternoon for dessert.  It was a hit.  My friend absolutely loves hazelnuts, she could probably live off Nutella alone.  So I thought of her right away when I made this.  So glad they liked it!

Note - the original recipe uses all purpose flour, I just wanted to try my almond flour.

Chocolate Hazelnut Pie
Adapted from Giada De Laurentiis
Printable Recipe

8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup hazelnuts toasted
1/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup hot water
4 eggs
1 stick butter, cut into 3/4-inch pieces, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Whipped Cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat to 350 degrees F.

Put 1/2 of the chocolate chips, hazelnuts, and flour in the food processor. Pulse until the hazelnuts are coarsely chopped. Pour the nut mixture into a small bowl and set aside.

Combine remaining chocolate chips and sugar in the food processor. Blend until the mixture is finely ground. With the machine running, gradually add the hot water until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Add the eggs, butter, vanilla. Pulse until mixture is blended.

Return the hazelnut mixture to the food processor and pulse to incorporate. Pour the mixture into a buttered and floured 9-inch pie dish. Bake for 35 minutes. Cool for 1 hour in a cooling rack.  Refrigerate for 2 hours. Allow the pie to return to room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

While the pie is cooling you can make the cream.  In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream until it forms soft peaks. Add the powdered sugar, and vanilla. Continue to beat until cream holds stiff peaks.

Serve each slice with a dollop of Whipped Cream!

It is as sinful as a pie!
I wonder who ever invented Nutella, that person is a genius! It's nice to randomly call up neighbours to come and have some cake. So long as it's the 'space' variety (had that type of neighbour once...)

Great choice of pie here. Nice crackly top with a moist fudgey center. I always load up on nuts when we go the grocers that have the bulk bins.
Ha-if we were neighbors I think food would have to be traded-no lack of dessert here!

Oh my goodness, chocolate and hazelnuts that sounds heavenly. Tiara is great I agree with you.

I. Hate when the phone thinks it knows what you're spelling. It should say Giada.

Oh yum! Chocolate and hazelnut are a match made in heaven... And this pie looks decadent & so delicious! Thanks for sharing :)

Your friend sounds like a kindred spirit, if it was possible i would definitely be happy living off nutella :) ive banned myself from buying it temporarily as it was too dangerous to have around! Anyway, this basically means this pie would be utterly perfect, and if it tastes even half as good as it looks i would be a happy bunny :)

Hazelnuts and chocolate are one of my favorite combos--and completely underrated. This looks like a fantastic (and completely sinful) pie. Can't wait to try it!

It serves more purposes and it can not be destroyed or consumed physically.
