Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!!

I don't post too many recipes for dessert. Because honestly, we don't eat a ton of desserts around here. I know, I know.....blasphemy! But bake a loaf of bread in this house and there will be mutiny. I'm just warnin' ya.

So this is one of our favorite desserts. Tried and true. And guess who makes it? Super Hubby! He is one mean pie makin' fool! This is our favorite by him. He makes it ALL the time when we go places. It makes the girls swoon over him. He loves it. I just giggle and think...Yep, He's MINE!

French Silk Pie
1 pie crust (he even makes that from scratch! Here is a great recipe!)
3 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, cut into pieces
1 cup butter, softened (do not use margarine)
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 pasteurized eggs or equivalent fat-free cholesterol-free egg product
1/2 cup sweetened whipped cream
Chocolate curls

Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Make pie crust. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
In 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat; cool. In small bowl with electric mixer, beat butter on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in cooled chocolate and vanilla until well blended.
Add eggs 1 at a time, beating on high speed 2 minutes after each addition; beat until mixture is smooth and fluffy. Pour into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving (Very important so it sets nicely). Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls. Store in refrigerator.

Here is a pretty photo from AllRecipes.com (my FAV foodie recipe site!). Because we eat ours before any fool has a chance to grab the camera.


Head on over to Blessed With Grace for more wonderful TMTT recipes!! Enjoy!
