French Silk Chocolate Pie
From Cook's Country
We wanted a French Silk Pie recipe with ramped-up chocolate flavor that didn’t call for raw eggs. Testing showed that only real eggs would do, but rather than incorporate them raw, we cooked them with sugar on the stovetop, almost like making a custard. Once the egg and sugar mixture was light and thick, we removed it from the heat and continued whipping it until it was fully cooled. Bittersweet chocolate folded into the cooled egg and sugar mixture boosted the chocolate flavor. And to lighten our French Silk Pie, we incorporated whipped cream into the filling before spooning it into the pie shell.
Serves 8 to 10
You will need a fully baked pie shell for this recipe. Use your favorite pie dough or use our No-Fear Pie Crust recipe (related). Serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream.
