    French Silk Pie

    Source of Recipe


    1 cup sugar
    3/4 cup butter (not margarine)
    3 squares (3 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    3 eggs
    1 9-inch baked pastry shell
    Unsweetened whipped cream (optional)
    chocolate curls (optional)

    In a small mixer bowl, cream sugar and butter about 4 minutes until
    fluffy. Stir in cooled chocolate and vanilla. Add eggs, one at
    a time, beating on medium speed of electric mixer after each addition
    and scraping sides of bowl constantly. Turn into baked pastry
    shell. Chill several hours or overnight till set. Garnish with
    whipped cream and chocolate curls, if desired. Cover and chill.

    Notes: I've never made this but I have heard that you must use
    butter. Also, I've been told it helps if the ingredients are
    chilled (like the butter, the bowl, beaters, etc).
