Frozen Nutella Pie8:30 AM
When I was younger...let's say...5th grade, perhaps...I was spending a few days at my grandparents' house in Jacksonville, NC, and my grandmother gave me a slice of heaven. This heaven, my friends, was her frozen peanut butter pie. I promptly copied the recipe in my 11-year-old chicken scratch and insisted that my mother add it to her dessert repertoire. I have since added it to mine, but because I'm never satisfied to let sleeping dogs lie, I had to change it. While my tastebuds and nostalgia both adore the peanut butter pie, my curiosity chimed in with a resounding "why not try it with Nutella?"
Who doesn't love Nutella?!
So, ladies and gentlemen, I bring you...
