chocolate silk pie

July 11th, 2017 | Posted by

You can’t go wrong with chocolate in our house. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays—even a Tuesday for that matter—there’s nothing like a little chocolate to finish off a meal. This pie checks off all the boxes . . . rich, quick, and easy. Plus, it’s one of my husband’s all-time favorites. Now that’s what I call a win-win!

 

Ingredients

 For the crust:

  • 24 Oreo cookies
  • ¼ cup butter, melted

 

For the pie filling:

  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (add ¼ cup more if you prefer sweeter)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 whole eggs

Directions

Grease an 8 or 9-inch pie plate or spring form pan.

In a large zip-lock bag, crush Oreo cookies into finely-ground crumbs. Mix cookie crumbs and melted butter together in a medium bowl until combined. Press mixture firmly against the bottom and sides of your pie plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, while you make the filling.

Using a microwave safe bowl, melt semi-sweet chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until melted and smooth (1-2 minutes).

Combine softened butter and sugar in a large bowl and use an electric mixer to whisk together until fluffy (1-2 minutes). Stir in melted chocolate and vanilla extract.

Turn your mixer to medium speed and add the eggs, one at a time, mixing for 5 minutes between each egg addition (this is what gives it a silky consistency). Pour filling into the Oreo crust and spread it smoothly. Refrigerator for at least two hours or, as I prefer, overnight.

I like to serve it with a dollop of whipped cream and some shaved chocolate. Mmm, enjoy!

    This sounds delicious and easy! But there must be a step left out. Four raw eggs? Is there a cooking step left out? I apologize if I missed it.
