Sam's Challenge

Sam is a pretty serious kid. So when I asked him this morning if there was anything I could do to help him today, I was shocked when he said,

"Give to fundraisers, restore peace and balance to the universe, and bake a pie".

One out of three isn't bad is it? I don't think I'm gonna ask tomorrow.

No-Bake Nutter Butter Nutella Pie

24 nutter butter cookies
1/4 cup butter

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

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

Spray 9-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Place nutter butter cookies into food processor and grind until they are fine crumbs. Stir together with melted butter. Press into prepared pie plate. Place into refrigerator to chill. 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. 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.
