"All the silky richness of the original recipe with a COOKED filling to guard against possible food poisoning associated with raw eggs."

"I've made this recipe over and over again. Each time it has gotten better and better. I'm posting again to share my new findings: I found that the recipe turns out even better if you don't over cook your mixture before adding the eggs. By not over cooking, you get a very silky texture."
"I made this last year and it was wonderful. I am going to make it every year at Holidays. Not too sweet. All I can say is if you made it and it turned out wrong then maybe you should stick to frozen pies. It was the easiest pie to make! Yum. I used regular pie crust and one with oreo crust. Both were well liked. :)"
"Made this for my husband for Valentine's Day weekend. Unfortunately my pie wasn't so silky after having been refrigerated. I was looking for more of a mousse consistency and got a pretty hard, solid filling that I wasn't too thrilled about (the filling was beat until fluffy, as directed). While it still tasted good it wasn't what I was hoping for. I did swap the pie crust from a dough crust to a cookie crust and there were no complaints on that :). Good luck with the recipe!"
"VERY VERY yummy! Thanks for the great recipe!"
"If I could give you 10 stars for this recipe, I most certainly would! This was the most fantastic, smooth, rich chocolatey French silk pie I've ever tasted. Thank you so much for posting! Yum!"
"This was the biggest hit at my Thanksgiving dinner! Wow. It did take more than 20 minutes for my mixture to thicken, but other than that, everything turned out wonderful. Like someone else said, the taste is not exactly what I remembered as "french silk" pie - it was almost more chocolaty than I wanted (is that possible?!). Next time I might experiment with a mix of more than one type of chocolate."
"This is a great recipe!! I'm glad I picked this recipe to try out."
"This was a big hit at my husband's place of work. The guys he shared it with said it was better than Baker's Square French Silk pie."
"Outstanding! Easy to make and delicious! Everyone raved about this pie and couldn't believe I made it myself. I used a store bought frozen pie crust and that was my husband's only complaint. He said it was just too thick for the pie. I'll try a homemade crust next time. The filling is rich and chocolaty, not too sweet. Thanks for sharing!"
"One word = AMAZING!!"
"This recipe did not work out for me at all. The chocolate, butter, sugar, cream, egg mixture never thickened. Even after going through all the steps, waiting 20 minutes with the mixture in ice water, and then beating it with my kitchen aid, nothing worked. I had to throw it out, send my husband to the store on Thanksgiving and make a different recipe that my mother-in-law gave me. I would not recommend this recipe."
"This taste fine, it is good, the only reason i give it 3 instead of 5 is it doesn't taste like the old fashion french silk pie recipe i used to use. I wanted to try the cooked egg version but the taste is so different. Next time I might try making it with unsweetened chocolate instead of semisweet, maybe that is the difference?"
"What a yummy, rich pie! I made this for Thanksgiving dinner this year and topped it with some homemade whipped topping. It turned out perfect! Thanks!"
"Great recipe - made it for a high school class and they loved it - it set up very well and also traveled easily. Thanks!"
"I made this right after Easter as a treat for DH who gave up chocolate for lent and he really appreciated it. I used No fail pie crust recipe#11062 for the crust and it was perfct. Thanks for posting :)"
