This Dutch pie is… Brazilian. Don’t ask me why in Brazil there are so many recipes that recall a foreign dish. I believe it is caused by the strong passion for the foreign things Brazilians have.
Otherwise we can’t explain the German Chocolate Pie that I believe is not known at all in Germany, as I believe for this Dutch pie too.
I found a couple of versions for this recipe but, as I do not love a lot of cream, I preferred this one with ice cream instead of the gelatin plus heavy cream ones. And it satisfied my sweet tooth ;-).
For the cookies, use common cookies, the ones you use into the milk, for example. I found this Brazilian version in YouTube, in a video by Ju Ferraz. She used a chocolate covered cookie for the sides, but I just used the same as the one used for the pie basis.
1 package of dry cookies
6 tablespoons of melted butter
500 g/17.6 oz of ice cream (cream flavor)
200 g/7 oz of heavy cream
2 tablespoons of sugar
150 g /5.3 ozof dark chocolate
200 g/7 oz of heavy cream.
Use a spring form of 8/9 in.
Put the cookies (minus the ones that will serve to build the borders) into your food processor and pulse until they become like flour.
Mix them with the melted butter and transfer it to the form. Using your fingers, create a basis for the pie. Add cookies on the sides to create a border for the pie.
Put the ice cream, the heavy cream and sugar into your electric mixer and turn it on until it is all well combined.
Pour the ice cream into the spring form and put the pie into the freezer until it solidifies.
Melt the chocolte in the microwave or bain marie and slowly add the cream, mixing well. Pour it over the pie and serve.
