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.
- 1 prepared 9-inch graham cracker crust (or make your own...I followed the recipe on the box of graham cracker crumbs)
- 1¼ cups heavy cream
- 3 egg yolks
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Sweetened whipped cream
- Raspberries, optional
