French Silk Pie

Fantastic French Silk Pie

For this marvelous treat, a premade Oreo pie crust was used. The recipe is adapted from Taste of Home. Only the instruction and ingredients for the filling were followed.

Ingredients
  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
  • Whipped cream and chocolate curls, optional

Directions

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and eggs until well blended. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the heat. Stir in chocolate and vanilla until smooth. Cool to lukewarm (90°), stirring occasionally.

In a small bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add cooled chocolate mixture; beat on high speed for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.

In another large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into chocolate mixture.

Pour into crust. Chill for at least 6 hours before serving. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls if desired. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 6 servings.
