I lost my original French Silk recipe and needed one in a hurry. I printed off this version without really looking at it. It called for 2 cups of butter and I am wondering if it was meant to...

This is twice the ingredients to a recipe our family has made for years, with exception of 2 c. buter. I believe, too, that it's meant to be 2 STICKS & not CUPS. Our recipe calls for 1 stick, 3/...

I have beeen making this pie for a very long time and my family loves it! But the amount of butter you called for is way to much and should be called down to two sticks of real butter.

Excellent if you like rich chocolate desserts. Easy to make, and I always beat each egg for 5 minutes as recommended. Recipe overfills a 10 inch graham cracker crust.

Too much butter and eggs. Cutting it down to two sticks is a good idea and 2 maybe 3 eggs instead of 4

i used to get french silk pie at a little tea house in ohio when I was a kid and bleieve me ti was a dream! Been looking for a recipe just like it; rich, thick and os so good. Well here it is! ...

Yummy... I've been making this for years and it is fantastic... gotta make sure to beat the eggs a full five minutes or else it will be grainy... super easy and super yummy

Turned out perfect. My family loved it! I did beat each egg for 5 minutes. This recipe made a lot! Will make it again. Used 2 sticks of butter not 2 cups!

This pie is awesome and very, very rich. It has gotten rave reviews where ever I take it. It is so easy to make and inexpensive as well. I added a layer of whipped topping over the pie.
