WHAT IS A CHESS PIE?
This Nutella Pie is a form of Chess Pie. If that term is new to you, read on. Chess Pie was originally created with four basic ingredients, flour, butter, sugar and eggs. But the difference between chess pie and other pies is the inclusion of an acidic ingredient, like buttermilk or vinegar. The idea is to cut down on the sweetness of the filling and change the consistency.
This Nutella Pie is a hybrid between these two ideas.
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.

- 1 Refrigerated Pie Crust I used Pillsbury
- 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 4 whole eggs
- 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1 stick butter melted and cooled
- 1/3 cup juice of one orange
- zest of one orange
- 1/2 cup 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.
