Preview: This Easy French Silk Pie features a silky smooth and cool chocolate filling inside a pecan cookie crust. Our family likes it best with chopped-up Skor or Heath toffee candy bars on top.
What makes this French Silk Pie recipe unique?
- A pecan-studded pat-in-the-pan pie crust
- Chopped Skor or Heath Bar on top
Contrast those two crunchy textures with the exquisitely smooth chocolate filling. It’s like jumping into a cool swimming pool on a hot Texas day after mowing the yard. The pleasure is almost unbearable!
Although a popular recipe in general, this particular recipe came from my Aunt Marg. She’s a legend in our family for winning a washer and dryer in a baking contest with her Hickory Nut Cake. You can read about it here.
Then there’s her Fresh Nectarine Pie and now this recipe for French Silk Chocolate Pie which shows up frequently at our Thanksgiving and/or Christmas celebrations.
Important tips about this pie:
- If you are squeamish about eating uncooked eggs, use pasteurized eggs.
- This is not a good pie to make on a hot day. It will soften quickly if not kept chilled.
