No-Bake French Silk Pie
Famous for being both feather-light and indulgently rich at the same time, French silk pie entered the American dessert canon upon winning the Pillsbury bake-off in 1951. It's one of the only dessert recipes that calls for eggs straight from the fridge; you'll whip them with melted chocolate for quite a while before chilling the pie--but rejoice, there's no baking whatsoever!
