French Silk Pie

My memories of French Silk Pie always involved a red box that was carried in for the holidays. I can’t remember a holiday when I was young where one or two of those pies did not grace our holiday table. Unfortunately, that lovely pie contains allergens that now make it forbidden in our home. The good news is that French Silk pie is surprisingly easy to make, so no one needs to feel left out. My family is going to be very excited to see this pie at our holiday dessert table.

This pie can be made to your family’s taste. Choose your favorite type of crust: cookie, graham cracker or regular gluten free pie crust will all work perfectly. In this recipe, I have included directions for a cookie crust. Use your family’s favorite type of chocolate. I had semi-sweet chocolate on hand the day I made this pie and it turned out beautifully. You can also make whipped cream to top your pie, or use a dairy free whipped topping. Decorate the cake with chocolate shavings, cookie crumbs or candy. The possibilities are endless and they will all end with a delicious pie that your family will love.

  8. Before serving, top chocolate silk with whipped cream or dairy free whipped topping and decorate with chocolate curls.
