French Silk Pie #Recipe

Sunday, October 30, 2011 Posted by Aleksandra Nearing

I do not bake very frequently and when I do, I generally want an easy recipe.  I was hunting around for chocolate pies and stumbled upon a homemade knock-off version of Baker's Square french silk pie.  Suddenly memories of picking one up every Sunday after church with my family came flooding back.

I had to make it, even after the health nut in me read the ingredients list.  It was worth it and simply, gloriously delicious.  This is a no-bake recipe and sets very quickly in the fridge.

1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 whole eggs
Whipped cream
Pie crust, cooked

I used a Pillsbury refrigerated crust and baked it according to package directions.  Set aside to cool.  Beat sugar and butter until completely combined.  Add chocolate and vanilla.  Add eggs, two at a time, beating 5 minutes after each addition. Pour into cooled pie crust. 

Chill 2 hours or until firm. Before serving, top with whipped cream and a little grated chocolate.

    French silk pie is one of my favorites, but I've never tried to make it before! It looks so easy though, so perhaps I might try it soon. :)
