It was Roast Turkey night. (burp). We pigged out and it tasted even better when I reminded my husband that the original price tag was $18.89 and I ended up getting it for something like $4.14. I rarely find deals that are so good. I'm sucking every ounce of pleasure out of it that I can.
When I was a teenager I used to work at a gourmet deli. That's where I learned how to cook and I ended up with lots of great recipes like Apple Dumplings with Lemon Cream, Buttery Shortbread Cookies and Fudge Frosted Peanut Butter Bars. But my total weakness was French Silk Pie. In the two decades since then, I seem to have lost some of my favorite recipes including the one for the pie. So when I came across the Exact Same Recipe on Recipezaar I was thrilled. And that's the pie we had as dessert with our roast turkey.
French Silk Pie has the BEST chocolate flavor. It's really like a firm chocolate mouse and not at all like those chocolate pudding pies that you normally get when you order a chocolate pie. I like to put it in a shortbread cookie dough crust, top it with real whipped cream and make chocolate curls to sprinkle all over the top. It looks like something from the bakery. And the cost...around $3. It takes me about 5 minutes to whip it together and a few hours to chill.
