French Silk Pie

Written By: Chris - Jan• 07•13

I’ve mentioned that pie is one of my favorite deserts!  Over the Holidays, along with my homemade fresh blueberry pie I wanted to prepare something different and special.  On the rare occasion that I would go to bakers square, I would likely choose the French Silk pie because it is delectable and sinfully delicious hands down!  I recall eating a homemade version that my cousin Margie used to make when I was a kid and I searched through some old piles to no avail of her recipe!  After rummaging through the internet, I came up with this pie recipe based on what ingredients that I had on hand.  I was craving something sweet and this did the trick!  It turned great, but the only thing I would do differently in the preparation is mix the whipping cream until thick separately as noted within.

Ingredients:

2/3 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs, whisked
2 oz. Chocolate Paste (1 oz. = 3 Tablespoons of cocoa + 1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Oil)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1/2 Cup of half and half
1 Cup Butter, softened
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream (whip separately and then blend in!)
1 Pie Crust (I used store bought)

Bake pie crust at 450 covered with foil for about four minutes.  Uncover and bake – checking every two to four minutes until crust is golden brown.  Set aside and allow to cool.

Combine cocoa and oil, mixing until smooth.  Combine sugar and eggs and cook over low heat until it coats the back of a metal spoon.  Set aside to cool.
