French Silk Pie
The basic concept of a French silk pie is that it is essentially a chocolate mousse set up in a pie crust. That translates into deliciousness! Recipes such as Caramel-Pecan French Silk Pie, Today's French Silk Pie, and Tiny French Silk Pies with White Chocolate Whipped Cream will make you forever a fan of this delicious dessert.
These sweet treats let you indulge in just a bite of French silk pie--just enough to satisfy your chocolate craving.
Make this rich chocolate pie ahead so it has plenty of time to chill before guests arrive.
Substituting refrigerated or frozen egg product does not change the classic silky richness of this luscious pie.
Pecan pie is beloved nationwide, but it's especially revered in the South, where it seems that pecans fall from the trees like little gifts from the heavens. Native Americans had long known the pleasures of the nut they named "pacane" (translation: "nut to be cracked with a rock"), but it was French immigrants who turned the nuts into one of America's most loved pies after they settled in New Orleans and discovered the joys of having so many pecan trees in their yard. We say, merci beaucoup!
