    I had never had or made a French Silk pie before I tried this one. I have tried a few since I first made this one and none of them come close! I have been making it every Thanksgiving and a few other times a year for over 6 years now. Great creamy texture, LOVE the crust with the brown sugar and pecans...also makes for a lovely and impressive presentation with the whipped topping and chocolate curls. Also can be made ahead of time and that's nice. I usually make it the day before!

    Fantastic! I added and extra egg to dense it up. Chocolate heaven...super fun to do a lovely presentation on top.

    This is the best french silk pie ever! It is very smooth and everyone always asks for it again. It's very important to whip it the stated time. I make a standard pastry pie crust and whip my own whip cream. Delicious!

    Great recipe. Very light and silky - secret is to beat the full time and chill sufficiently. I made espresso whipped cream for the topping. It was a hit!
