This pie is delicious. I have been making it for over 25 years. Garnish each slice with whipped topping and chopped walnuts if you like.

The first recipe for French silk pie is incomplete, that is why there is not enough filling for a full pie. After you cream the ingredients listed you are supposed to whip the whites of the two eggs used into a merange type consistancy using 1/4 c sugar to help form stiff peaks. Then you are supposed to add the chocolate mixture to the egg white mixture which will give you plenty of filling for your pie with a taste that is heavenly and is so light and fluffy. The way French silk pie is supposed to be. This is a great recipe that is fast and easy to prepare and is a crowd pleaser every time.

The trick to getting a silky, not soupy and grainy filling is to beat it on HIGH speed for at least 3 minutes per egg WITH THE WISK ATTACHMENT, NOT THE PADDLE IF YOU USE A STAND MIXER!!! I used the paddle first for the butter etc. and then switched to the wisk. Beating for any length of time on a lower speed won't work. I used 4 Tablespoons of cocoa powder instead of going through the trouble of melting and cooling chocolate. Also only used 1/2 cup sugar. I also added 1/4 cup malt powder to the butter mixture before adding the eggs for a French silk malted pie. Superb!!!! Double the recipe and the alterations above for a standard premade oreo crust. Thanks for recipe.

1 inch of filling does not a pie make! I gave the recipe 3 stars. The taste and texture are incredible BUT there isn't enough filling for a standard 9 inch pie shell. The filling needs to be doubled, everything else is perfect, ingredients, method and results are to die for, but the pie looked cheap because the shell wasn't full enough. After it has set overnight, garnish with whipped whipping cream{sweetening it is not necessary with this pie} and chocolate curls
