Dark Chocolate Ganache Pie with a Biscoff Cookie Crust


 Pie week is here! Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? Are you ready? I sure as heck am not!


To kick the week off I am sharing the most simple yet fancy pie (or tart) ever created. The crust is simply butter and ground up Biscoff Cookies. Then I filled it with a dark chocolate ganache and topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.


For those of you are scared of pie baking, this is as simple as it gets. The most inexperienced can whip this up for Thanksgiving dessert... or for any other occasion! 




Dark Chocolate Ganache Pie with a Biscoff Cookie Crust

Ingredients:
  •  1 1/2 cups finely ground Biscoff cookies  
  • 6 tbs room temperature unsalted butter
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Whipped cream and chocolate shavings for serving (optional) 
Directions:
  1. In a mixing bowl combine butter and cookie crumbs with a fork.
  2. Press mixture into a 9 inch pie plate or tart pan.
  3. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until the crust is crisp and has browned a bit.
  4. To prepare the filling, add chocolate, cream and salt to a medium sauce pan. 
  5. Whisk over medium heat until the mixture is smooth and chocolate is fully melted.
  6. Pour into cooked crust. 
  7. Cool in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until the filling has set. Slice and serve with whipped cream and chocolate shavings

  4. I've never understood why someone would take a piece of cake if a good pie is offered. Of course, I'll try to get a piece of both if possible, but if a choice is to be made, it's pie, hands-down. Plus, chocolate? Yes, please!!

    2. It's a cookie similar to a graham cracker but much better! They can be found at most grocery stores and are in the cookie isle.

  15. I stumbled upon this post through Javelin Warrior's Food Fetish Friday, and I have to say, I haven't stopped thinking about this pie since then. I even shared it with my readers on my blog's Weekend Wrap-Up, and I wanted to stop by with the link in case you were interested. Thank you for posting such an amazing looking recipe, and I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!

  16. Stumbled upon this through Savory Simple's share on FB! What a simple, yet decadent recipe. Added 1 drop of ginger essential oil to it. The rest they say is history! And.... great blog, will be back for more! Thank you :)

  17. so I made this last night and holy crap balls is it amazing! I used half and half instead of heavy cream and the ganache turned out perfect. I used a little more butter than stated because, well, butter... but I wish I hadn't. while it was still outstanding, it had more of a toffee flavor with all the butter vs. biscoff flavor but still.. toffee isn't bad! def. making again. think will add a little almond extract to ganache mixture too.

    1. They are like a ginger snap but not as hard. They usually served as one of the snacks on airplanes which is where I got hooked on them. Should make an awesome pie crust!

  19. I made this pie last night... but used Biscotti instead of Biscoff (forgot my grocery list and bought the wrong thing) That being said... was one of the easiest pies I have ever made, the chocolate was perfect and actually the almond crust was pretty good.. This is my new "go to" recipe.. looks like you slaved and the whole thing, including cooking the crust too me less than 30 minutes

  20. My crust isn't getting "hard" in the oven.....it's been in for over 15 minutes and it's mushy still. Should i keep letting it cook so long?
