French Silk Pie ~ Sugar Free

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
2 eggs
Real whipped cream for topping
1 prepared crust (I used a nut crust like the one here)

pie recipe
In a stand mixer bowl, cream the butter and sweetener
until well blended.   Add the vanilla and melted chocolate.
Mix well.

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.

Kool-Aid Pie

I’ve been on a Kool-Aid Pie kick lately.

And why not?!  They’re so easy!

I know they’ve been around for a while but it’s a new attempt at an easy and delicious pie.

I’ve had several elderly friends to pass away lately and I was looking for something quick and easy to take to the dinner for the family.    It’s kinda hard to make a complicated recipe when you work full time.  This recipe is exactly that…easy, that is, and delicious, too! You can change the flavor depending on what kind of Kool-Aid you use.

I’ve made three flavors…Strawberry, Lemon-Lime, and Orange.

Delicious…very easy…and perfect for Spring!

Low Carb & Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie

I finally made this wonderful pie!

There’s nothing like the taste of Pumpkin Pie to let you know that Autumn has arrived.

Too bad I didn’t have some cream left over for garnishing.  Grace2882’s looks so good with the whipped cream on top!

Thanks for such a fabulous recipe, Grace!  You can find the recipe here at Grace’s blog.
