What’s For Dinner: Chocolate Silk Pie

I bought my cousin, Rabiya, a recipe book as a gift and I couldn’t help but browse through it first though and this recipe caught my eye right away. Rabiya has been “helping” me cook and bake since she was very young. I have so many memories of pulling a chair alongside me  for her to stand on top of so she could see/help.
Once I gave her the recipe book, I copied the recipe, made some changes, and tried it out — it was absolutely delicious!
What you need is:
  • a 9-inch One-Crust Pie Shell [store bought works great]
  • 1/4 cup of butter, softened [which is 1/2 a stick]
  • 3 ounces of milk chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chilled whipping (heavy) cream
To make your Pie:
  1. Over low heat, melt your butter and chocolate. Then, remove from heat.
  2. Mix your sugar and cornstarch together and then stir it into chocolate mixture.
  3. Meanwhile, beat eggs in a small bowl [on medium speed] until it is thick, and almost lemon colored; stir into chocolate mixture.
  4. Cook mixture over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly until thick and glossy; stir in vanilla. Cool ten minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Beat whipping cream in chilled medium bowl until stiff.
  6. Fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream. Pour into pie shell.
  7. Cover and freeze for about 4 hours, or until firm, before serving.
Garnish with whipped cream, and chocolate shavings if you would like to do that.
P.S. This post is a part of my “What’s for Dinner” series, where I share what I’ve been cooking and my recipes.
