Orange Nutella Chess Pie | This pie is soooo easy to make, but incredibly decadent!
Remember the other day when I said that my go to comfort food is savory and not sweet??
Lies! All lies!!
Okay. It was true at the time.
But at the time I had never eaten this pie before!
This pie is so good. This pie is so good that I actually had to take a break from writing this post to eat another piece! No, seriously, this might be the best pie that I’ve ever eaten.
Most chess pies have vinegar in them, but given the acidity of the orange, I decided to leave it out. It has a large helping of Nutella to it and the juice of one whole orange. But the thing that really perfected the flavor was the orange zest that I decided to add at the very end. Yum, yum, triple diple yum!
Inspired by this Chocolate Hazlenut Chess Pie from Love, Life, and Sugar that I made for my family’s Christmas.
Orange Nutella Chess Pie
- refrigerated pie crust (I used Pillsbury)
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 3 TBSPs all purpose flour
- 1 stick of butter, melted and cooled
- juice of one orange (about 1/3 of a cup)
- zest of one orange
- 1/2 cup of Nutella
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a deep dish pie pan with a pie crust.
- Whisk together the sugar, eggs, flour, orange juice, orange zest, and Nutella.
- Once the butter has cooled, whisk that in as well until the mixture is completely smooth. (Note: If you don’t let your butter cool, it will cook the egg when it is added, which isn’t awesome.)
- Pour the batter into the pie crust and bake for 40 minutes. The pie might still be jiggly in the middle. Let cool completely before serving.
