Fig and chocolate pie

Happy Friday everyone! I sure am happy it’s the weekend because it means a lot of family cuddle time which is my favorite thing in the world. I love waking up in the morning on the weekend and not having to stress to get ready etc.
For our Friday night family dinner I made arrabbiata sauce served with quinoa spagetti and for dessert I made a pie filled with chocolate mimic cream and fresh figs. It’s such light and rich dessert at the same time. I love the combination of chocolate and fresh figs from our garden.

Crust:
1 1/2 cup spelt flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup oats
175g/6,5 ounces butter, melted
Preheat oven to F350.
Blend together everything until you are left with a ball of dough. Press into a pie mold or tart pan. Bake 15 minutes. Let crust cool for 15 minutes before filling it.
Filling:
1 package mimic whipped topping ( ice cold)
1 cup good quality dark chocolate, melted
1/2 vanilla beans, seeds scraped out and used, beans discarded.
6-8 ripe fresh figs, sliced
Whip topping and vanilla bean until fluffy and firm. fold in chocolate very carefully. Spread cream into the pie crust and arrange figs on top.
