A couple weeks ago, Chris challenged me to recreate his favorite store bought {restaurant} French Silk Pie. I knew I could do better than that and a couple of pies and tweaking later, I more than succeeded! Fortunately, it’s also a really quick and simple recipe!
pre-baked pie crust
3 oz chocolate chips
1 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs {pasteurized if you wish}
whipped cream
chocolate shavings or magic shell
Melt chocolate chips in small saucepan on low or in microwave, stirring in 15 second increments until smooth. Allow to cool. In mixer, beat butter on medium until fluffy. Beat in sugar. Add cooled chocolate and vanilla.
Beating on high, add 1 egg at a time and beat each for 2 minutes. Mixture will become smooth and fluffy after final egg. Pour into cooled crust and refrigerate for 2 hours. Add whipped cream and chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
