Grandma's Creamy Chocolate French Silk Pie Recipe Melts in Your Mouth by 30Seconds Food
French silk pie made its debut in 1951, when it was entered into the Pillsbury Bake Off by a woman named Betty Cooper. And for chocolate lovers, life would never be the same. Grandmas have been making this pie for years and years (including mine!).
This easy French silk pie recipe is elevated with the addition of crumbled chocolate chip cookies. Oh, my. Must try! So easy and delicious.
This is a traditional recipe for French silk pie, which means it calls for raw eggs. If you have any concerns about foodborne illness, use pasteurized eggs, which have been heated so that any bacteria is likely killed. This helps to reduce the risk of foodborne illness, such as salmonella, while keeping the eggs raw. You should be able to find pasteurized eggs at the grocery store (and we think this recipe is so delicious that it just may be worth the trip)!
