How to make it

  • Crust:
  • Grease a 20cm glass pie dish with butter. Stir butter and chocolate in heavy small saucepan over low heat until melted.
  • Finely grind cookies in processor. Add chocolate mixture. Process until crumbs are moistened. Press crumb mixture into prepared pie dish. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes
  • NOTE:If you desire a more crispy crust,bake it in a 350 F preheated oven for 8 minutes and cool.
  • Filling:
  • 1-Whisk together sugar,cornstarch,cocoa powder and salt in heavy medium saucepan to blend.
  • 2- Whisk in egg yolks to form thick paste. Gradually whisk in milk, then cream. Whisk over medium-high heat until mixture thickens and boils 1 minute.
  • 3-Remove from heat. Add chocolate and whisk until smooth. Whisk in orange juice and vanilla. Cool 5 minutes, whisking occasionally. Transfer filling to frozen crust. Chill until cold, at least 2 hours and up to 1 day
  • Pipe some rosettes using a piping bag fitted with star nozzle and sprinkle some chocolate curls just before serving.

    I find it interesting that the filling is transferred to a "frozen" crust! I know this is delicious, and is on my list to make! Thanks.
