This easy French Silk Pie recipe is a classic! A rich, creamy layer of chocolate pie filling is topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls for an irresistible dessert.
Pie crust Sugar Eggs Unsweetened chocolate Vanilla extract Butter Heavy whipping cream Confectioners’ sugar
Make the pie crust dough and place it in a 7-inch pie plate. Flute the edge, then line the shell with foil. Bake the crust for 4 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 2 minutes more, or until the crust is golden brown.
Combine sugar and eggs in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat, stir in the chocolate and vanilla. Let mixture cool.
Cream the butter until it’s light and fluffy. Beat in the cooled chocolate mixture. In another large bowl, beat the cream until it begins to thicken, then beat in the confectioners’ sugar until stiff peaks form.
Fold the whipped cream mixture into the chocolate mixture, then pour the filling into the crust. Chill for at least 6 hours, then garnish and serve.
French Silk Pie is a year-round kind of treat because chocolate is good whenever you serve it. Who can turn down a chocolate-y dessert?
