I don't normally make a recipe over and over again simply because I enjoy the challenge of making new recipes. If I do make a recipe more than once, it's for one of two reasons: it's truly exceptional or because someone has specifically requested it.
The very first time I made this pie, was for a friend's birthday in November. I liked it so well that I made two more to put in the freezer for Christmas. I wasn't sure how it would freeze but I pulled it out on Christmas Eve and served it after our Christmas dinner. It was just as outstanding.
Believe it or not, I made THREE of these french silk pies and I don't have a single picture of a sliced pie! I love this pie so much that I get all caught up in the excitement about eating it that I forget all about taking pictures. Normally, I would cut a slice and take a photo of the beautiful chocolate pie but in this case, you are going to have to take my word for it - it's awesome.
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons water
1 cup whipping cream
1 baked pie crust (either homemade or store bought)
8 ounces dark chocolate, melted and cooled
1 Tablespoon vanilla
8 Tablespoons butter
Combine eggs, sugar and water in bowl of mixer. Set over double boiler. Cook and whisk until temperature reaches 160.
Spoon into pie shell.
This is a delicious pie, no matter what the occasion. I think I may have to make another just so I can take more pictures of it. (Pretty poor excuse to eat pie - I know.)
