How to Make French Silk Pie

  1. In a small bowl, slowly melt the unsweetened chocolate. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar. Beat it until it’s creamy and fluffy. Add 1 tsp. vanilla.
  3. Add each egg, one at a time. Whip 5 minutes after each egg. This is the most important step, as it adds air to the eggs and creats a fluffy, not heavy, pie.
  4. Slowly add cooled chocolate. Beat well.
  5. Spoon chocolate filling into your pie crust. Cover loosely and refrigerate until firm.
  6. While your pie is cooling, whip your cream, powdered sugar, and additional 1 tsp. vanilla. Whip until stiff peaks form. Spoon over top of chocolate pie filling. Garnish with chocolate curls.
