Best French Silk Pie Recipe

Sep 15, 2023

When it comes to choosing your dessert pie, take your time to think about it. It’s the last thing people will remember from your meal, so it’s crucial to choose wisely. There's apple pie for a classic look or cranberry pie for a bit of tart after a decadent meal, but this recipe is the one you choose when you want it to be the star of your meal. The name doesn’t lie: This French silk pie may not teach you how to speak Moliere French, BUT it really does have that silky texture that makes you feel like your mouth is spooning and cuddling with whipped chocolate. How does this happen? It’s quite simple.

The silkiness comes from all that air (and all the fat content 🤷‍♂️) we’re going to incorporate. Beating your eggs into the chocolate mixture for 8 minutes at high speed is essential for a great result. Also, letting your filling sit properly in the fridge is very important, so try not to give in and ignore it for at least 6 hours. Add lots of whipped heavy cream on top and shaved chocolate for a touch of finesse!

You can definitely buy a pre-baked pie crust. but if you’re feeling that Martha Stewart within you awaken, use our pie crust recipe because it’s absolutely no-fail every time you make it. To take your pie to the next level, we suggest using a good-quality bittersweet chocolate, like Guittard.

Note: This recipe includes raw eggs, which we know can make people a little less than comfortable, so using pasteurized eggs is the best way to go.

Bon chance!
