  • Summary

    I often make a chocolate cream pie for holiday gatherings because it seems to offer just the right amount of decadence to properly celebrate the season. I've come up with a slightly crumbly hazelnut-cocoa crust that is suitably flourless as well as being a wonderful complement to the rich chocolate. Be gentle as you press it into your baking pan, as it may be a bit delicate to work with.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 cups whole hazelnuts
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    • 2/3 cups sugar
    • 1/4 cup cornstarch
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 4 egg yolks
    • 3 cups whole milk
    • 7 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Coconut Milk Whipped Cream or regular whipped cream for topping
