French Silk Pie

A couple of days I was looking through an Oklahoma RT 66 guide book. I saw an advert for the Flamingo Restaurant in Elk City, on the western edge of the state. One of their specialties is French Silk Pie. This isn’t their recipe but it is good! I use this non-cook recipe with my own fresh eggs from my little flock, so I don’t have to worry about salmonella.

  • 1/2 cup Butter, at room temp
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 squares Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1 (8 inch) Pie Shell, cooked and cooled

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl with a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Add the cooled chocolate and vanilla. Beat throughly. Add one egg and beat on medium for 5 minutes. Add the second egg and beat for an additional 5 minutes. The mixture should be light and fluffy. Pour the chocolate mixture into the baked, cooled pie shell. Chill for 2 hours. May top with whipped topping, shaved semi-sweet chocolate or crushed nuts.  So good with a bold French Roast coffee.
