French Silk Pie

My family loves this pie! One never lasts for more than a day. It is great on any occasion or just because you want something cold and chocolate! My mom got this recipe from an old Betty Crocker or Pillsbury cookbook.

ingredients

  • 1 chocolate graham wafer pie crust
  • 12 cup butter, melted
  • 34 cup sugar
  • 2 unsweetened chocolate squares, melted
  • 2 tablespoons peppermint schnapps or 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 eggs
  • Cool Whip or whipped cream
  • 1 chocolate bar

directions

  • Place the melted butter in an automatic mixer. I use a Kitchenaid.
  • Add the sugar and stir on low.
  • Slowly add the chocolate while mixing until it is well blended.
  • Pour in your peppermint.
  • Add one of the eggs, and change the mixing speed to hi. I go to the highest level on the Kitchenaid. Beat the mixture for 5 minutes.
  • Add the second egg. You may want to slow down the mixer to add the egg. Return to hi speed and mix for 5 minutes. Your pie should be a nice light brown color. If not, mix it longer and make sure you are on a really hi speed.
  • Turn off the mixer. Pour the mix into the chocolate crust. Place a lid or plastic wrap over the pie.
  • Refrigerate the pie for at least 2 hours.
  • Take the lid off the pie. Spread cool whip or whipped cream on the pie. Make chocolate curls with the chocolate bar and a potato peeler. Sprinkle the curls over the cream.

    This pie is absolutely delicious! I was looking for a recipe like my mom used to make, and this one, with the peppermint, is it! I should have made 2! Oh, and if you don't have peppermint schnapps, you can blend vodka and crushed peppermint candies in a blender to get close to the same flavor.
