French Silk Chocolate Pie
Sharon Raasch, Imperial, Neb.
1 c. Heavy cream, chilled
3 Large eggs
3/4 c. Sugar
2 Tbsp. Water
8 oz Bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
1 Tbsp. Vanilla extract
1 stick Butter, unsalted, 1/2-inch pieces, softened
1 (9-inch) Pie shell, baked and cooled
With electric mixer on medium-high speed, whip cream to stiff peaks, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer whipped cream to small bowl and refrigerate. Combine eggs, sugar, and water in large heatproof bowl set over medium saucepan filled with 1/2-inch barely simmering water (don’t let bowl touch water). With electric mixer on medium speed, beat until egg mixture is thickened and registers 160 degrees, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to beat egg mixture until fluffy and cooled to room temperature, about 8 minutes. Add chocolate and vanilla to cool egg mixture and beat until incorporated. Beat in butter, a few pieces at a time, until well combined. Using spatula, fold in whipped cream until no streaks of white remain. Scrape filling into pie shell and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours and up to 24 hours. Serve.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve with Cool Whip or ice cream. *May use different flavors of pie filling and cake mix.
