Mama Nibbles: Recipe: Heidi's Gluten Free Philly Cream Cheese and Nutella Pie

Recipe: Heidi's Gluten Free Philly Cream Cheese and Nutella Pie

I need to start by saying that I could eat the whole pie myself if left alone with it LOL. This is my most favorite dessert to make when company is coming, it is simple and very delicious. We were chosen to host a Philly Cooking Creme party last night on HouseParty.com, feeling creative and to go with the cream cheese theme I made this delectable dessert and it disappeared within minutes! Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to chill if you want the best results. Enjoy!


Oven 350F

Crust:
1 Package Pamela's Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies (can use Oreos if you eat gluten)
1/3 stick butter melted
2 Tablespoons sugar

Filling:
2-8 oz packages Philadelphia Cream Cheese (room temp)
13 oz jar Nutella
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
16 oz tub thawed whipped topping

Crust:
1)Pulse cookies in processor until a fine powder (or can just pound in a baggie with something hard)
2)Mix in the melted butter and sugar until it is well incorporated
3)Pat into a round 9-10" spring form pan lined with parchment paper
4)Bake at 350F for 5-7 minutes then cool in freezer while you prepare filling

Filling:
1)In your mixer (or by hand) whip together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy, add in vanilla and Nutella then whip some more until well mixed together
2)By hand with a rubber spatula fold in the whip topping
3)Take cooled crust out of freezer and gingerly spread filling into the pan, keeping the parchment up around the sides for easy removal later
4)Chill pie in the refrigerator for 4 hours minimum or you can throw it into the freezer for a couple hours if you will need to be serving it right away
5)When you want to serve it just run a knife around the edge, pull off the spring form ring and then carefully slide off of the bottom and parchment the peel off the parchment around the outside.

This pie should serve at least 12

Note: do not make the crust too thick, it will be too hard to cut and bite if you do.
Tip: add 1 tsp cinnamon for a unique flavor!
