"I can't give this pie enough stars. It is beyond wonderful. Not only for every day but this would make a superb dessert for guests. I made one change. It called for crisp ladyfingers and since I could not find any, I used Nonni's Turtle Pecan Biscotti (6.88 oz. box) and used the entire box. Worked perfectly. I also used chocolate Nutella as the original recipe called for but you can use plain Nutella. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home. Absolutely wonderful."
