Recipe Mondays: French Silk Pie

**Chocolate lovers beware.  This dessert could be addicting!**

My husband's favorite dessert is French Silk Pie.  When he was at the Coast Guard Academy, every break he came home to visit (before we were married) I would make him this pie for dessert for one of the evenings he had dinner with my family.  I make it as a very special treat now that we are married, too!  It is SO good! :)  And it is really quite simple, as well, especially if you have a Bosch or some sort of food mixer...  A hand mixer will work fine, however!  Here is what you need to mix together!

French Silk Pie
1 baked pie shell (I make my own, but you could purchase one if you wanted)

3/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup pasteurized egg product

Whipped cream
Chocolate bars
  • Step 1: Make sure the pie shell is baked and cooled.
  • Step 2: Mix together butter and sugar until nice and fluffy.  
  • Step 3: Melt chocolate chips (don't over-melt!) then mix into butter and sugar mixture
  • Step 4: Add vanilla and slowly add egg product. Mix at high speed while continually scraping the sides of the bowl.  Continue doing this until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Step 5: Spoon or pour the filing into the baked and cooled pie shell.
  • Step 6: Top with whipped cream and, if you so desire, chocolate shavings or curls pulled off of the chocolate bars.  
  • Step 7: Cover and chill for at least 5 hours (I usually let it go overnight).
  • Step 8: Serve cold! It's delicious!


  1. Wow.......... That looks...... AMAZING!
    What exactly is egg product?

    1. Egg product is real eggs, but pasteurized... so it is safe for eating even though the filling in this pie is not baked. You can find it in the egg section and it is usually in a little carton (like a small milk carton). :)

  2. Okay...I'm going to try this! It looks wonderful!
