Today is Pi Day (3.14) so I will post a pie. As I have said many, many times, I am challenged in photographing pies. I can’t cut them nicely to begin with and I just get mad and take a terrible picture. Oh well.
This pie is so good and it helps that chocolate pie is one of our favorites. Don’t leave out the coffee as it really adds to the chocolate flavor.
Chocolate Silk Pie
1 baked 9 in pie shell
1 jar marshmallow cream
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
2 ozs unsweetened chocolate
2 tbsps strong brewed coffee
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsps confectioner’s sugar
In a heavy saucepan, combine the marshmallow cream, chocolate chips, butter, unsweetened chocolate, and coffee. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool. Fold in whipped and pour into crust.
For the topping, beat cream in a large bowl until it starts to thicken. Add the confectioner’s sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
Spread over filling and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Makes 6-8 servings.
