I love dessert and dessert for me usually involves chocolate!
I made this recipe several weeks ago and was very impressed with the richness and depth of chocolate flavor.
*Please see COOK”S NOTES regarding raw eggs
FRENCH SILK PIE
1 stick of real butter (softened)
3/4 cup sweetener that measures like sugar ( I used Stevia)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 squares Baker’s chocolate, melted
Real whipped cream for topping
1 prepared crust (I used a nut crust like the one here)
In a stand mixer bowl, cream the butter and sweetener
until well blended. Add the vanilla and melted chocolate.
Add the first egg and mix for 5 minutes on medium.
Add the 2nd egg and mix for 5 more minutes.
Mixture should be fairly thick (mousse-like) by that time.
Pour into prepared crust. Chill.
Serve each slice with a dollop of real whipped cream.
*I like to warm the pie up just a few seconds in the microwave
before serving. Just maybe 3-5 seconds or it melts into a sauce. :)
COOK’S NOTE: The eggs in this pie are uncooked. On a personal level, I’ve never had sickness from using raw eggs in recipes, the risk which is evidently quite low. But for those who are very old, very young, pregnant, or have a compromised immune system, please do not risk eating raw egg products.
With that being said, buy good quality, organic if possible, eggs. Check for any breakage, even hairline cracks and don’t use those. Wash the eggs in a sink of soap and water. The salmonella is a bacteria found in chicken intestinal tracts and it gets deposited onto their egg shells, therefore, an unbroken egg should be sterile inside.
