Instructions

Pecan Pie:

  1. Preheat oven to 375. With 1 pie crust in pie plate, chill for 20 minutes.
  2. Place layer of foil into pan over crust and fill with pie weights. Bake for 25 minutes.
  3. Turn down oven to 275 degrees, make sure that pie crust is still warm.
  4. Melt butter in a metal bowl set in a skillet of water that is just below a simmer. Remove the bowl and from the water when melted, whisk in sugar and salt. Whisk in eggs, corn syrup and vanilla. Place bowl back into water and mix until hot and registers 130 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat and whisk in pecan pieces.

Into the bottom of the pre-baked pie crust, smear the ½ cup of Nutella over the bottom evenly. Pour in pecan mixture. Bake for 55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for at least two hours or devour at room temperature.
