A French Silk Tradition

I’ve made all sorts of French silk pies and desserts, but always come back to  Jean Webster’s basic recipe. That isn’t to say you can’t change it up a bit as I did with this pie. A nice slosh of Frangelico, a smooth hazelnut liqueur, adds an extra level of flavor. You can also use a premade pastry or chocolate cookie crust to make it easier on yourself.  My family expects a French Silk Pie every Thanksgiving, along with pumpkin. It’s the first dessert to disappear—try it and you’ll see why!

Easy and Exquisite

This may look complicated, but  it’s a snap to prepare. Just don’t think about the calories as you add the ingredients! A stand mixer with a paddle attachment makes for very little hands on time. Sit back and have a bonbon or two while the mixer chugs along. Most of the ingredients are already in your kitchen or refrigerator, but I’d recommend hunting down some pasteurized eggs if you’re serving this pie to your children, the elderly or immune compromised since the eggs are added raw. You can certainly skip the Frangelico completely or add your favorite liqueur. I contemplated using Kahlua as the coffee flavor plays beautifully with chocolate. No matter which crust and liqueur you use, your family will request this every holiday to come!

A delectable twist on my favorite French Silk Pie recipe. Adapted from Jean Webster.
Ingredients
  • One 9-inch pie shell of your choice, homemade or store-bought pastry or chocolate cookie crust recommended
Filling:
  • 12 tablespoons (1 ½ sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur
  • 3 large eggs,pasteurized recommended
Topping:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 package Whip-It (optional)
  • Chocolate curls or Baci for garnish
Instructions
  1. Bake a 9-inch pie crust of your choice. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar for about 2 minutes, till light and fluffy. With the mixer running, gradually add melted chocolate, vanilla, and the Frangelico. Add eggs, one at a time, beating at medium speed for 5 minutes after each addition. Pour filling into cooled crust. Cover with plastic wrap, and cool in the refrigerator at least 4 hours.
  3. Before serving, whip one cup of heavy cream, adding sugar and vanilla to taste. I also add an envelope of Whip-It to stabilize the cream. Garnish with chocolate shavings or Baci if desired.

  1. Mmm that sounds perfect! Love the addition of frangelico, I’m sure that adds a great extra hint of flavor 🙂

  2. oh wow this looks divine!

  3. Très magnifique, Liz! Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season.

  4. That’s a beauty of a pie, Liz. I had a peek of the ingredients and you have to tell people, “It’s Christmas” so you can get away with all of that decadence.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. The first time Scott and I had French Silk pie we looked at each other and said “we think we might have died and gone to heaven”. I had to have the recipe. There was no internet at the time so I bought the cookbook from the restaurant. It’s been a family favorite here too ever since and I’ve done lots of versions of it but never with Frangelico. Sound wonderful and will try it next time! Thanks Liz, you’re always a source of great inspiration!

  6. Frangelico + French silk pie sounds like the way to my heart, what a dreamy dessert!
