French Silk Pie
This velvety pie takes a lot of beating, so if you have a stand mixer, use it, but a hand mixer works well too.
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 Tblsp. sugar
5 Tblsp. butter, melted
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the crust ingredients and then press evenly into a nine-inch pie pan. Bake for 10 minutes and then cool completely.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy (3-5 minutes).
Melt the chocolate chips either over a bowl of hot water or in the microwave. (Put it in for 1 1/2 minutes, check and do 30 seconds more until you can stir them). Add the chocolate to the butter mixture and stir until mixed.
Add one egg in at a time and beat with a mixer 3 minutes or until it get’s very fluffy, then add the next egg until you add all 3 eggs
Mix in the vanilla and then put into the cooled pie shell.
Chill for 3-4 hours before serving, and then enjoy.
