Chocolate Silk Pie
1/2 Cup Butter
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 1/2 ounces unsweetened Baking Chocolate Melted and Cooled
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 prepared 8 Inch pie crust baked and cooled
First you will need to cream the butter in a medium sized mixing bowl with an electic mixer. Gradually add in the sugar until light colored and well blended. You will want to make sure the chocolate is cooled so it doesnt melt your butter into oil and add it to your butter and sugar. Add the vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed until well blended. Add the egg one at a time and beat for 5 minutes after each egg on medium speed. Once this is completed you will want to add it to your prepared pie crust. Make sure to set it on a level spot in your refrigerator to cool completely or for 2 hours before serving.
Once cooled and you are ready to serve, Add a little drop of whipped topping and using a potato peeler add a few slices of chocolate curls. Serve with a little drizzle of chocolate syrup to make it look even better.
