French Silk Pie

Hey! I am so glad you stopped by to check out my recent bakes. My name is Kelsey. I love baking all things but especially pies and pastries. Follow me along on my journey!

I have made this recipe at least 10 times, I usually don’t go back to recipes because I like trying new things. But this French Silk Pie… it is perfection! It is also really easy which is a huge plus. If you have never had a French Silk Pie, it truly lives up to its name. The chocolate filling is SO silky, my husband described it as “feathery” haha! It is a very rich dessert but because it is so silky smooth you can accidentally eat more than you planned haha

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
