    so here you go Henry'schickens, a lovely pie indeed.

    French Silk Chocolate Pie...

    1 C. heavy cream, chilled (fridge temp)
    3 large eggs
    3/4 C. granulated sugar
    2 TBLS. water
    8 oz. bittersweet chocolate (melted and cooled)
    1 TBLS. vanilla
    1 stick sweet cream butter,room temp, cut into 2 TBLS pieces
    1 9 inch pie shell, baked and cooled

    1. Whip cream w/mixer on med-high until it forms stiff peaks, about 2-3 minutes. Put into small bowl and then put in fridge.

    2. Combine eggs, sugar & water in a large heat-proof bowl set over medium saucepan filled w/ 1/2 inch slowly simmering water. (do NOT let bowl touch water). Beat egg mixture with mixer set on medium speed. Beat until the temp is 160* and thickened, about 6-10 minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to beat until mixture is fluffy and cooled to room temp, about 9 minutes.

    3. Add chocolate and vanilla to cool egg mixture and beat until mixed. Beat in butter a few pieces at a time until combined. Using a spatula, fold in cold whipped cream until there is no white showing in bowl. Scrape bowl into pie shell and refrigerate until firmly set. (approx. 3 hrs. can be stored in fridge for up to 24 hrs.)
