We made a banana cream pie in a hazelnut crust. It was scrumptious. And I love chocolate cream pies. Why not marry the two?
The crust is simple to make: add chopped hazelnuts to a just-add-water crust mix. If you don’t have hazelnuts, you can use chopped walnuts.
This is an exceptional pie. You can use the crust recipe for other pies--fruit pies like apple or cream pies like chocolate. We think you will enjoy this recipe.

2/3 cup finely chopped hazelnuts
3 tablespoons sugar
