Chocolaty, creamy and rich French Silk Pie is an easy and delicious recipe for casual everyday enjoyment.
Pie is very high on my list of Favorite Things. And French Silk Pie is the number one pie on that list.
While I was growing up, my older sister would take me to Bakers Square Restaurant for pie. When you walked in the door, a large glass case was filled with the most glorious pies. Caramel Apple Pie, Fruitabulous Blueberry Pie, Caramel Pecan Silk Supreme Pie, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie, Fresh Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie, and the pie of my dreams, French Silk Pie. This award winning pie is a chocolate lover's dream. Velvety smooth chocolate silk is topped with fluffy whipped cream and milk chocolate shavings. It was a slice of heaven.
Now that I live at the Jersey Shore the closest Bakers Square Restaurant is 495 miles away in Parma Heights, Ohio. Still craving the pie of my dreams, I crafted a knock off recipe about 15 years ago. My version of the ultra chocolaty and sinfully rich dessert is a family favorite. A large dollop of fresh whipped cream catapults this pie to the highest heights of piedom.
The beloved French Silk Pie even inspired my son to put pen to paper and write a poem about pie way back in third grade (that's 13 years ago!).
Pie is a wonderful thing.
Pie is a really cool thing.
There are so many to pick from like apple, pumpkin or maybe even French Silk.
I wish I were a PIE.
That about sums up how I feel about pie. Make a French Silk Pie today.

A creamy and dreamy whipped chocolate pie topped with a generous dollop of whipped cream. The recipe contains fresh, raw eggs. I suggest you skip this recipe if you are older, pregnant or have a compromised immune system. The recipe is easiest to make with a stand mixer.
- In a bowl, beat the sugar and butter with a handheld or stand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
- Beat in the cocoa powder, canola oil, and vanilla until thoroughly combined.
- Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping the sides of bowl as needed. Beat about 3 minutes after the addition of each egg. The chocolate egg mixture will be whipped and light.
- Spoon filling into pie shell and chill for at least 3 hours. Top with whipped cream and serve.
