French Silk Pie Recipe -Creamy chocolate pie in an easy perfect pie crust. This French Silk Pie recipe has none of the grittiness I’ve had in other recipes.
Chocolate French Silk Pie
French Silk Pie is my number one, favorite pie of all time. I really wanted to be able to make it myself but the problem I kept running into was that my homemade French Silk Pies always ended up with a gritty texture. So annoying.
The fix for that is whisking. So much whisking. Whisking until all of that gritty texture is gone. This allows the sugar to saturate the butter better, making the French Silk Pie smoother and creamier! So seriously, if you’re having a hard time making your French Silk Pie smooth and creamy, just make sure to keep whisking, or else you’ll end up with a gritty sandy pie!
For this recipe, you’ll need a baked pie shell. You can use store-bought. OR! You can use this amazing Easy, No-Fail Pie Crust recipe (which is what I used!)
