This typical Alsatian homemade hazelnut pie has a thick and crusty pie bottom and needs to rest over the night to get the right consistence. This pie is a good idea as a dessert to end an Alsatian evening after some tarte flambées (which you can also find on this webpage).

These chocolate snowballs are crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. I recommend preparing several batches with different chocolate each time, this way they will last longer.
