    IAteMyGluestick's Note:

    This is my version of a French Silk recipe I found. The filling is wonderful, not too sweet, and just chocolaty enough. It tastes just like the French Silk Pie at Baker's Square!!! (Prep time shown here includes refrigeration time)

      A very rich and satisfying pie! I had trouble though because the recipe is missing a step and wasn't sure which was to be combined with what. Didn't come out light and fluffy as stated but still very good!!
