French Silk Pie without Eggs
0 made it | 0 reviews |
"This is a beautiful, fluffy French silk Pie. Garnishing it with extra whipped cream and chocolate curls makes it fabulous! I recently made one for a pie auction and it sold for $65.00! Yes, it really is that tasty. I've been making this pie by memory for years, so I have no idea of the recipe's origin. For a higher, more impressive pie, whip 1 extra cup of whipping cream and add it to the top of the pie, before garnishing with shaved chocolate."

- Mix together sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan until well blended. Stir in milk gradually. Turn heat to medium and stir constantly until boiling. Remove from heat.
- Add chocolate chips and vanilla extract to the hot milk mixture; stir until smooth and chocolate chips have melted. Transfer into a large mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and place on the counter until cooled to room temperature.
- Meanwhile, combine 2 cups whipping cream and powdered sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
- Uncover cooled chocolate mixture and beat with clean beater attachments until light and fluffy. Gently fold 1/2 of the whipped cream mixture into the chocolate mixture, being careful not to overmix. Spoon into pie crust and top with remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate until firm, 2 to 3 hours. Serve.
