This pie is a bit of a hybrid between a blueberry pie and a cheesecake. It’s easy to make but so unique!

Pour the whipping cream into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add the granulated sugar and vanilla. Beat on a higher speed until the cream is at the same stiffness you would want for whipped cream. Add the cream cheese, Nutella, and powdered sugar and mix until well incorporated. Pour the pie filling into the pie crusts, and place the pies in the fridge to chill for 4 hours, or put them in the freezer for an hour. Just before serving, make some whipped cream. Place the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on a medium speed until medium peaks form. Spread on top of the pie, and slice and serve.

No Bake Nutella Pie

A very easy recipe for a Nutella pie that you can prepare in just 15 minutes. It tastes similar to chocolate silk pie. Just remember that the pie does need to chill for an hour before serving.
