Ingredients
Crust:
  • 1½ cups (6.75 oz) hazelnut pieces
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Pinch kosher salt
Filling:
Instructions
  1. Process the hazelnuts in food processor, until very finely chopped (but stop before they turn into a paste).
  2. Add the melted butter, honey and salt and process to incorporate, stopping once to scrape the sides.
  3. Using a spatula, transfer the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Spread the mixture all over the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pie plate, pressing with your hands to compress it into a crust.
  4. Place the crust in the freezer to set while you prepare the filling.
  5. Wipe the food processor bowl and blade clean with a moist paper towel.
  6. In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the chocolate with the honey and vanilla. Set aside.
  7. Place the cream cheese in the food processor bowl. Process until creamy, about 1 minute, stopping once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  8. Add the melted chocolate mixture. Process to incorporate, stopping to scrape the bowl as needed.
  9. Using a spatula, transfer the mixture to the prepared pie crust. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.
  10. Remove the pie from the fridge 30 minutes before serving. Cut with a serrated knife, and run the knife under hot water, then wipe dry, between slices.
