Don't worry; this adventure is easier than you might think. So, let's gather our ingredients, preheat that oven, and prepare to bake a Maron Pie that'll have everyone asking for seconds!


Before we start, let's make sure we have all our ingredients ready:

For the Crust:

- 1 and 1/4 cups of graham cracker crumbs

- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar

- 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted

For the Maron Filling:

- 2 cups of sweetened chestnut cream (Maron cream)

- 1/4 cup of heavy cream

- 2 large eggs

- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar

- 1/4 teaspoon of salt

- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

- 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted


1. Preheat and Prep:

   Start by preheating your oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease a 9-inch pie dish, and set it aside.

2. Create the Crust:

   In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated. Press this mixture into the bottom and up the sides of your prepared pie dish to form the crust.

3. Prepare the Maron Filling:

   In another bowl, whisk together the sweetened chestnut cream (Maron cream), heavy cream, eggs, granulated sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and melted butter until well combined.

4. Pour and Bake:

   Pour the Maron filling into the prepared crust. Smooth the top with a spatula.

5. Bake to Perfection:

   Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the filling is set and the edges are slightly golden. You might notice a slight jiggle in the center; that's perfectly normal.

6. Cool and Chill:

   Allow the Maron Pie to cool completely at room temperature. Then, refrigerate it for at least 2 hours or until it's nicely chilled. This step helps the pie set beautifully.

7. Serve and Enjoy:

   Once chilled, slice your Maron Pie into generous wedges. You can garnish with a dollop of whipped cream or a dusting of powdered sugar if you like. Then, simply savor each delicious bite.

Maron Pie is a dessert that perfectly combines nutty richness with a smooth, creamy texture. It's a delightful treat for any occasion, whether serving it at a dinner party or enjoying a slice for dessert after a cozy meal. The flavors are comforting and indulgent, making every bite a moment of sheer dessert bliss.
