French Silk Pie Recipe @pinch

This French silk pie is rich, creamy, and super decadent. It is a little labor intensive because you do need to beat the ingredients for a while, but if you have a stand mixer it will be a breeze. The filling is light and fluffy with just the right amount of chocolate flavor to satisfy chocolate lovers. This pie is fancy enough for a special occasion, but simple enough to make when craving something sweet. My husband's favorite pie. It is super simple to make! Creamy, rich, and decadent, this is definitely a chocolate lover's kind of pie!Please note that it does contain raw eggs, which is something to consider for children under 3, pregnant women, and anyone immunocompromised. You can substitute pasteurized eggs if you wish.

Intructions :

  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat it until creamy and fluffy, around 5 minutes. Add the vanilla
  • 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 creates a fluffy (rather than heavy) pie
