For the chocolate lover this is, hands down, the most glorious of pies. The fragile chocolate crumb crust blends perfectly with the chocolate filling and whipped cream topping.

Refrigeration time

8-12 hours

Baking equipment

23cm (9in) standard pie plate; a 10 loop piano wire whisk



100g (3½oz) unsalted butter

255g (9oz) chocolate wafer crumbs

2 pinches of fine sea salt (omit if

using purchased wafers)

½ tsp pure vanilla extract

Make the crust

1 In a small glass measure with a spout, in the microwave, or in a small saucepan over a medium-low heat, melt the butter. Food processor method

2 Process the cookies and salt, if using, into fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and vanilla and pulse a few times just until incorporated. Hand method

3 Place the cookies in a large reclosable freezer bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into fine crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a medium bowl and mix in the salt, if using. With a fork, stir in the melted butter and vanilla and toss to incorporate. Both methods

4 Use your fingers or the back of a spoon to press the crumb mixture into the pie plate and partway up the sides. If the crumbs stick to your fingers, place clingfilm on top of the crumbs.
