Chocolate Silk Pie Recipe

We recently celebrated my husband’s birthday.  He requested his mom’s Chocolate Silk Pie.  I was happy to oblige!  Who doesn’t want a slice of Chocolate Silk Pie?


This is a pretty simple recipe to make.  I use a store bought Oreo Crust to make it even easier (gasp!).  You can also make this using a regular pie crust.  If you need a good pie crust recipe, you can use my Grandma’s recipe which is my absolute favorite Pie Crust Recipe, which I shared here:

Pie Crust Recipe


If you go with an Oreo Crust recipe you will just need to make the pie filling.  If you make a regular Pie Crust, roll out the dough and place it in a pie dish.  Trim the excess and then flute the edges of the pie crust.  Chill for about 10 minutes in the refrigerator to allow the dough to relax (this will help prevent the crust from shrinking as you bake it).

Once the dough has rested, use a fork to lightly prick the bottom of the pastry. Take a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper and press it into the pie plate, gently pushing it right up against the pastry. Fill the sheet of foil or parchment paper with pie weights, dried beans or even uncooked rice to hold it in place. This weight helps the pie dough hold its shape.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Bake the crust for 20 minutes, then remove it from the oven and take out the pie weights and the aluminum foil liner.  Set it aside to cool.

    Hi! This looks delicious, and I’d love to try it! It may be a mobile glitch, but I’m not seeing the chocolate in the recipe? :)
    Thanks for sharing!

      I was coming to post that as well and saw that you beat me to it lol

      I think she just left out the chocolate amounts, type, etc. by mistake! The pie sure does look good though!

        Can you tell me more about this recipe? I’m not a baker but I am trying this recipe and I don’t see where the chocolate filling is ever heated but there are eggs in the filling. Doesn’t it get baked?

    Is there a way to get the updated version of this recipe? Chocolate is missing from the recipe.

    Amazing! My husband loves french silk pie. However, I haven’t yet attempted to make one. I’ll try your recipe for Father’s Day weekend. Thanks so much!!

    Are the eggs cooked in this recipe? Just wondering. And, do they still get stiff even with the yolks in them?

    • Debbie says

      Doesn’t make sense to me either. Whole eggs aren’t going to become stiff, I don’t think

  6. Kathleen says

    Sounds fab! I’ve made dishes/desserts with raw eggs for over 35 years. Never had an issue. My question, experience, is that I’ve never gotten stiff peaks from whipping whole eggs, the yolk & white together. Confused over that. Otherwise, I want to try as this recipe has less sugar, butter and eggs than others.
