Easy No-bake Nutella Cheesecake

Quick and easy. Two of my favorite words! And boy will I ever need those kind of recipes for the next few weeks. Early next week my daughter will deliver our 5th grandchild (2 for her, 3 for my son) and I will be on "grandma duty" while she recuperates. Her 3 yr old, Emmie, and I will be in charge of the kitchen and I think we will need a good dessert recipe to make together. This pie looks like it will be just right!

You could press this into a 9-inch baking pan or into a tart pan or into individual muffin tins. If you do any of these variations, you'll need to make your own crust. Place about 1/2 pkg of Oreos in a food processor along with 3 tablespoons melted butter and process until mixture looks like wet sand. Press into pan and fill with Nutella mixture.

Enjoy the pie and say a prayer for all of us next week as we welcome Hudson Riley Statham into the world!
