    Title: French Silk Pie
    Categories: Pastry, Chocolate, Dairy
    Yield: 6 servings

    1 Sheet refrigerated pie
    - crust
    2/3 c Sugar
    2 lg Eggs
    2 oz Unsweetened chocolate;
    - melted
    1 ts Vanilla extract
    1/3 c Butter; softened
    2/3 c Heavy whipping cream
    2 ts Confectioners' sugar
    Whipped cream & chocolate
    - curls; opt

    Cut pie crust in half. Repackage and refrigerate 1 half
    for another use. On a lightly floured surface, roll out
    remaining half into an 8" circle. Transfer to a 7" pie
    plate; flute edge.

    Line crust with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil.
    Bake at 450ºF/232ºC for 4 minutes. Remove foil; bake
    until crust is golden brown, about 2 minutes longer.
    Cool on a wire rack.

    In a small saucepan, combine sugar and eggs until well
    blended. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until
    mixture reaches 160ºF/71ºC and coats the back of a metal
    spoon. Remove from the heat. Stir in chocolate and
    vanilla until smooth. Cool to lukewarm (90°), stirring

    In a small bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy,
    3-4 minutes. Add cooled chocolate mixture; beat on high
    speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

    In another large bowl, beat cream until it begins to
    thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff
    peaks form. Fold into chocolate mixture.

    Pour into crust. Chill for at least 6 hours before
    serving. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls
    if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
