How to Make French Silk Pie


  1. Bake pie shell according to directions on package. Melt chocolate squares in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring to prevent burning. Turn off heat and let chocolate cool.
  2. Beat sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla, cream of tartar, and melted, cooled chocolate.
  3. Add eggs and beat mixture until light and fluffy on low to medium speed. Beat about 3 minutes. Pour beaten mixture into the cooled pie shell and refrigerate until set (3 - 4 hours).
  4. In a chilled mixing bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with a chilled beater until mixture is stiff. Top set pie with whipped cream. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
