Chocolate Satin Pie #SundaySupper

For our Thanksgiving feast, pumpkin pie is a given. The second pie used to be up for grabs. If my parents were visiting, it would be my excuse to make pecan. Apple was a natural choice, too. But lately, I’ve been making French silk pie…and we’re in a rut. According to the crew, the bonus pie now MUST be French silk. But, as my food blogger friends know, we don’t like to make the same recipes over and over. New recipes=New blog posts. Get it? My family doesn’t. I thought I’d show them that the epitome of  a rich chocolate pie doesn’t have to be French silk. How about Chocolate Satin Pie? A graham cracker crust filled with a fudgy custard and topped with a mound of whipped cream and berries. They were sold.

This pie was so simple to put together. You could even buy a graham cracker crust to save a couple steps.  There were only three ingredients in the filling. Then a  fluffy pillow of whipped cream topped the chocolate custard  (I won’t even tell if you use the can!) along with a mound of the fattest, most luscious berries imaginable. Your chocoholic family members will be satisfied…mine were.  And the words “French silk” weren’t even be uttered. Well, at least not until the next holiday.

This week’s Sunday Supper theme is “We got you covered.”  Covered dishes, food with toppings (like my Chocolate Satin Pie), or foods that fulfill a need are all being shared today. A big thanks to DB, AKA Foodie Stuntman, for hosting us at this busy time of year. Be sure to scroll down and see the marvelous array of recipes from my friends.

  2. I have never tried making a pie other than apple. This has got to change. This looks fantastic!

  3. this looks like such an elegant treat!

  4. I’m sold too, Liz. Easy? Elegant? Delicious? Yes, please!

  5. Such a pretty pie Liz! My boys get nervous and shudder at the words “blog fodder” too:@)

  6. Really, that filling couldn’t be simpler and the results so stunning Liz! A chocolate dessert as a second option always keeps the crowds happy!

  7. This pie is stunning Liz! It sounds delicious and I love how decadent and elegant it looks. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving :)

  8. The chocolate filling looks silky smooth and I’m sure quiet delish ! Okay , I also sigh over those gorgeous raspberries :D

  9. That chocolate filling looks absolutely beautiful, and the berries just make the pie pop with color. I love it!

  10. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos and the pie looks delicious. I have all the ingredients except the raspberries so I think I will substitute blueberries and my family will enjoy a dessert that looks like it took hours to make, hopefully with your directions is will be as “easy as pie”…

  11. Guess I’ll be seeing more yummy recipes with the coming holidays……..

  12. Yum Liz!! Your pie looks incredible. I used to make my boyfriend (Husband now), chocolate silk pie with cool whip and instant pudding. It was his favorite or at least that’s what he told me then?? But your pie, is WAY better! I should make this for him for a surprise!!

  13. We do the same thing with the pies! One is always pumpkin, but then the second has kind of always ended up being a Texas cream pie…we got into a rut as well!

    I think this satin pie is riiiight up my alley. Chocolate goodness, yum!

  14. oh my goodness! I would be sold too…and it’s so beautiful!

  15. I can see why they were sold, Liz. That is one beautiful pie!

  16. I love chocolate pie, so rich and delicious! I love your addition of the red raspberries!

  17. One of the best things about blogging is it forces you to cook outside of your routine recipes! This pie looks wonderful – we need to make this! Thanks.

  18. What a gorgeous rich looking pie! Wishing I could cut a piece right out of the screen!

  19. Gorgeous pie!! I would adore this even more because it has those fresh raspberries on top. YUM!!!

  20. Oh what a beautiful pie!!! Those fresh raspberries are such a great idea at this time of the year.

  21. Silk? Satin? Who cares if it looks this good? My family is crazy for French Silk too but I think they wouldn’t complain for a second about this fabulous looking pie!

  22. Oh wow, how divine…. and soooooo simple! Thanks Liz xo

  23. OHMYYYYGOODNESS loooving how silky and chocolatey and delicious this looks–plus that graham cracker crust makes this some marshmallows short of being s’mores-y :P ;)

  24. Oh yum!! My SIL just requested a chocolate dessert for Christmas. Of course I won’t stand in the way of this…I think this chocolate pie would be perfect.

  25. This pie looks out of this world good. Chocolate satin sounds like it should be illegal. But then… it shouldn’t.
    Pinning this!

  26. This is such a great alternative to other pies during the holidays. I love your recipe and the photos are making my mouth water. Thanks for sharing Liz!

  27. haha! yes the kids always said me when you will make the dessert you made…? But I dont like
    repeat récipes ! well. well, this look decadent and delicious Lizzy!!! xo

  28. Since something chocolate is always on my holiday table I better get busy making this one!

  29. Raspberries would be a must for me! Chocolate and raspberry is a great flavor combination

  30. That’s it! Well I could make this! :) I actually made my first graham cracker crust for a banana cream pie on Thursday. It turned out quite good. Still have some graham cracker lefts and everything else. You’re really spoiling my holiday diet Liz. :)

  31. Such a pretty pie, and yes I hear ya, new recipes, new posts.
    I love this one.

  32. Simple yet perfect. I can see why this would be an easy win! I want to make one myself now! Thank you for sharing it Liz! Here’s to a wonderful first week of December!

  33. A buttery creamy chocolate pie for weekend supper…YES, Please.

  34. wowo, glorious choco dessert…
    i guess you should have your own pastry brand then!

  35. I thought it was just my family that wanted repeats of things they can’t have because we need new things. :)

    I really like your satin pie!

  36. So pretty, Liz! Just to look at this pie, it makes not wanting to share with anyone. :)

  37. What a super gorgeous pie! And you make it sound so very easy!

  38. De-licious! And so pretty! I am craving that chocolaty goodness now!

  39. This is so gorgeous! Fudgy custard with fresh berries on top? Yes please! And I’m so jealous of how perfect your graham cracker crust is. I don’t have the patience to make mine anything other than weirdly lumpy.

  40. i could use some chocolate! this pie looks yummy!

  41. You are just a master at pies. That’s about the most perfect homemade graham cracker crust I’ve ever seen. And I can see you family asking for chocolate pie and letting you surprise them with a new version each year.

  42. I love that I’m not the only one who makes some form of chocolate pie for Thanksgiving! I brought a chocolate meringue pie this year, so good. This looks amazing!

  43. OH MY WORD. The sheen on that chocolate filling seriously has me drooling. What an elegant dessert!

  44. There’s no way anyone with eyes or tastebuds could resist this luscious, gorgeous, elegant dessert, Liz! I’m so envious of your family – they’re so lucky to eat all the incredible things you bake!

  45. Beautiful Liz! I can bring my own plate and fork, no dishes for you to wash! ;)

  46. Yum!! Just yum!! :)

  47. Nothing wrong with this!

  48. I’m sitting eating my breakfast… but I would love to have dessert now too. :) Beautiful pie. :)
