Chocolate Truffle Pie
What’s the perfect way to end any holiday meal? With pie, of course!
Baking pies can be challenging and time consuming even for the most experienced baker. With these five ingredient (not including water, oil, salt, and pepper) pie recipes, we have taken some shortcuts that will save time without sacrificing flavor.
- Vegetable oil
- 1 8 ounce bag gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies (such as KinniToos)
- 1 12 ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips
- 2¾ cups heavy cream divided
- ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar divided
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- ⅛ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
Lightly brush or spray a 9-inch pie pan with oil.
Place the cookies in the bowl of a food processor (do not scrape out the filling) and process until they become fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, you can put the cookies in a large food storage bag and crush the cookies with a rolling pin. Remove and reserve about ¼ cup of cookie crumbs for topping the pie. Add 2 tablespoons oil to the remaining cookie crumbs, mix well, and press the mixture firmly into the prepared pan.
Pour the chocolate chips into a heat-proof bowl. Heat ¾ cup heavy cream in a small saucepan just until it starts to boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips, stir, and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir the mixture until it is smooth and glossy. Let cool. Stir in ¼ cup powdered sugar, the vanilla, and salt.
Whip 1 cup heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Add the chocolate mixture to the cream and whip until smooth. Pour into the pie crust, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 8-12 hours.
Whip the remaining 1 cup heavy cream with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread the cream over the pie, sprinkle on the reserved cookie crumbs, and serve or refrigerate until serving time. Can be made several hours ahead.
