For the Graham Cracker Crust:
2 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs
½ cup sugar
½ cup melted butter
For the Chocolate Layer:
2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
½ cup room temperature butter
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, room temperature
For the Whipped Cream Layer:
4 oz room temperature cream cheese
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup cooled heavy cream
For the Chocolate Curls:
⅓ cup chocolate chips
1 tsp shortening
Preheat your oven to 350°F and generously grease a glass pie pan or round cake pan with butter or cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Transfer this mixture to the prepared pan, pressing it firmly into the bottom and up the sides to create a crust. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Allow the crust to cool completely, then refrigerate.
Melt the unsweetened baking chocolate in the microwave and let it cool to room temperature.
In another mixing bowl, cream the softened butter. Add sugar and vanilla extract, beating until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Incorporate the cooled melted chocolate and mix until fully combined. Add the eggs one at a time, beating for 5 minutes after each addition. This extended beating time creates a wonderfully fluffy pie filling. Transfer this chocolate filling into the cooled crust and refrigerate.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, beating until well combined. Incorporate ½ cup of cooled heavy cream and beat until combined. Then, add the remaining ½ cup of heavy cream and beat until stiff peaks form. Place the whipped cream filling on top of the chocolate layer and refrigerate.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and shortening, then melt them. Mix to ensure a smooth consistency. Spread this chocolate mixture thinly on the back of a baking sheet and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes or until it hardens. Using a metal spatula or knife, create chocolate curls. Decorate the French silk pie with these delightful curls.
Your Irresistible French Silk Pie with Chocolate Curls is ready to be enjoyed! Slice, serve, and relish every blissful bite.
