Ingredients

  • 1 ready made pie crust or this recipe
  • ½ cup butter {1 stick} melted and cooled
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup finely chopped dry roasted unsalted hazelnuts
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks {or chips}

For Yogurt Whipped Cream

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup Stonyfield Whole Milk Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract*

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the unbaked, prepared pie crust on top of a baking sheet. {If making your own crust, arrange into a 10 inch pie dish and place atop a baking sheet.}
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together cooled butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Fold in flour, cocoa powder and salt with a rubber spatula until well-incorporated.
  • Gently stir in hazelnuts and chocolate chunks or chips to distribute evenly. Pour the mixture into the unbaked crust and smooth with spatula.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes or until the center has puffed a bit {it may crack, that's ok} and the middle is gooey but mostly set.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 20 minutes before slicing. Dollop with Yogurt Whipped Cream if desired.

For Yogurt Whipped Cream:

  • In a small bowl whisk together heavy cream, yogurt, powdered sugar and vanilla with a hand mixer until smooth. Beat until soft peaks form and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes

* You can add 2 tablespoons of your favorite liqueur or spirit such as Frangelico or Bourbon to the pie filling if desired for a boozy twist.
** You can also add about a tablespoon of liqueur to the whipped cream as well.
