My family loves it. I make dessert for our home. It is not that hard and it does take a while to make a pie. They are so delicious and tasty.

How to Make Gianduia Pie (Nutella)

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven 350°F. Place all of hazelnuts (1 1/4 cup) on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes until they are fragrant.

    Place the nuts on a clean kitchen towel and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Once cool, rub the nuts with the towel to remove the skin. A little skin won't hurt but try to remove as much as possible.

    Make the crust: place the nuts and cookies in a food processor and grind finely. Combine the crumb and nut mixture, butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla in a medium size mixing bowl and stir until the crumb and nut mixture is moistened.

    Press the mixture evenly across the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate and all the way up the sides of the pan, packing it tightly with your fingertips so it is even and compacted.

    Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes until edges start to become firm. The crust will become more firm as it cools. Let cool completely before filling. The crust may be wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for up to 1 month.
    Make the filling: place 3/4 cup toasted and skinned hazelnuts in a food processor and process until very fine.
    Combine the cream and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form.

    Place the Nutella in a medium-size mixing bowl and stir in one quarter of the whipped cream.
    Gently fold the lightened Nutella mixture back into the remaining whipped cream. Fold in the chopped hazelnuts.
    Scrape the filling into the prepared pie shell and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Cover the pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is completely set, at least 6 hours and up to 1 day.
