Chocolate French silk pie is one example of a Baker's Square copycat pie recipe. The recipe uses basic ingredients, such as butter, eggs, sugar, unsweetened chocolate and vanilla. Chocolate French silk pie takes about 45 minutes to prepare and serves about eight people.
Begin making chocolate French silk pie by preparing and baking a 9-inch pie crust. Allow the crust to cool. Melt 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate, and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Begin making the filling by beating 1 1/2 cups of fine sugar and 1 cup of softened butter until the mixture is no longer grainy. This may take 15 to 20 minutes using an electric mixer on medium-high speed. Blend in the cooled chocolate and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Add 4 eggs, one at a time, and beat the mixture well after each addition. Pour the chocolate filling into the cooled pie crust.
Chill the pie for at least two hours or until the pie is set. Top the pie with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Due to the raw eggs in this recipe, do not serve it to pregnant women, babies, young children or individuals with compromised health, unless using pasteurized eggs.
