French Silk Shooters | silky, rich dessert in mini form

Uh, Oh! Where’s the Dessert?

It’s no secret my family loves French Silk pie. When the Sunday Supper crew decided to share “Tantalizing Trays,” I immediately thought of creating individual dessert servings utilizing our favorite pie filling. When I caught Bill scrounging in our pantry for Oreos, I knew it was time to treat him to these French Silk Shooters.

There’s Always Room for French Silk!

Pumpkin pie is always a given at Thanksgiving…then I poll the family as to what to make for our second dessert. Yes, a family of 5 needs two desserts for this holiday…whether or not we have company. That’s OK, isn’t it? I’d love apple or pecan, but invariably I’ll hear that we must have French silk pie. In fact, our whole Thanksgiving dinner is pretty much the same year after year. Not so ideal for a food blogger!  But maybe this year, I’ll make minis. Now these would be a crowd pleaser…at least with my crowd! Though I’m pretty sure your crowd would be enamored with them, too.

Do you know how easy it is to make this filling? Only a few ingredients…make sure to look for pasteurized eggs since they will not be cooked in this recipe. Butter, sugar, chocolate and an egg…that’s it!  Having a stand mixer is nice given the long beating times, but these can also be made with a hand mixer. They are heavenly! You know they’re good when you accidentally dribble a little tuna marinade…quite oily and full of salty, preserved lemons….onto the top of one of these beauties. And the hubby just scrapes a little of the cream off the top and dives in. Now that’s an endorsement!

        1. They look so elegant! Would decorate any table 🙂

        2. French sophisticated silky shooters look heavenly. No wonder your family insists on a repeat performance every year =) Nice touch to put the ice cubes under the dessert, too =)

        3. I’m all for dessert shooters. That way if I eat 2, I’m not guilty of really over doing it!

          A great dessert! (Sans the tuna:@) Your glasses are pretty too Liz!

        5. I hope Bill will love your dessert! Anyway I prefer your silk shooters to a Oreo’s ! Love your glasses too !

        6. I would love these little shooters too for Thanksgiving. Pumpkin is a must but not my favorite. Maybe since these are little they could be the dessert that goes when the leftovers are brought out.

        7. Such an elegant way to serve a wonderful dessert. I love those shot glasses too.

        8. Not being a crust person, I think these look even better than the whole pie!

        9. These are so elegant looking! They’d be perfect for a cocktail party or a gathering of friends.

        10. It’s the dessert I’ve been waiting for!!! and I have Davidson’s safe Eggs in my fridge right now!! can’t wait to try this Liz!!! Just stunning and so pretty!!

        14. Sooooo fancy and soooo perfect for my upcoming girls’ night in! Thank you!

        15. Just love how easy these sound … and also that they’re little ‘shooters’ rather than larger pots. Makes for not only a tasty but also a guilt-free dessert!

        16. Okay. This is going to happen in my house and soon. What a great presentation too.

        17. Seriously delicious looking…as always, Liz. You are amazing!

        18. We always have multiple desserts at our family dinners too, you need choices!!! These are stinkin cute!!

        19. WOW these sounds sooooo good Liz, and the fact that they are simple to make? Oh ya, gonna happen soon!

        20. Gosh, those manage to look completely adoreable and delicious at the same time! HOpe you are having a great weekend!

        21. I probably should have kept my pretty shot glasses, what a cool idea.

        22. I love French silk! Your shooters look like the perfect indulgent bite!

        27. These silky treats would disappear fast at my house!

        28. Those little shooter glasses are gorgeous. And being filled with that luscious french silk filling adds to their appeal 🙂

        29. Stunning! What a lovely dessert. There is always room for chocolate in our home.

        30. I can always count on something chocolately with you, Liz! Looks great!

        31. Yes, my crowd would be plenty enamoured with these – they look beautiful and sound YUMMY! Don’t know where to find pasturized eggs though? Is there a way to pasturize eggs at home? HUGS

          • Yes, Cheryl, you can pasteurize eggs at home. You just need to keep them at 140º for 3 minutes (I have placed them in hot water and monitored the temperature with my instant thermometer). You don’t want the water to get hotter or the egg will scramble; cooler and the salmonella won’t be killed. Good luck!

        32. These shooters are so elegant and pretty! Love that they are so easy to whip up and mini treats are always so much more fun 🙂

        33. We are absolutely a 2 dessert family too. I can see why this is a favorite!

        34. Isn’t French silk the best?? This is all the great parts of the pie in one!

        35. Shooters are the absolute best, Liz–love that you’re using this for a sweet tray dish! I’ve never even had French silk pie and I’m totally craving this already. IT LOOKS SO GOOD, goodness gracious…

        36. There really is always room for dessert and your French Silk Shooters are absolutely mouthwatering! Yummy!

        37. French silk is pure decadence! LOVE <3

        38. Oh, my I love those glasses, what an elegant way to serve.

        39. These are just stunning and the picture is amazing. I had to come over to tell you so.
