My daughter, Michelle, is crazy for French Silk Pie. So we have it nearly every holiday. It's always one of the first to be eaten up.

4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 c. whipping cream
1 c. whipping cream

1/2 t. cream of tarter (optional)


For Cookie Crust: Combine cookie crumbs with sugar and melted butter. Pour into pie plate spread evenly up sides and bottom. Put into an oven preheated to 375 F for 7 minutes. Set aside to cool, when somewhat cool, place in fridge to cool. For Filling: Cream butter and sugar together in bowl of stand mixer for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy.
