Chocolate Silk Pie

(Adapted from a recipe I found on cooks.com)

Note: This pie isn’t mousse-like, as I had expected, but more like fudge. It was a big hit nevertheless.

Ingredients:

1 unbaked pie crust

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1 cup sugar

pinch salt

1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

3 eggs

2/3 cup evaporated milk

1 tsp vanilla

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Melt chocolate chips in microwave with butter (50% power for 2 minutes should do it). Whisk in salt, sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Whisk until well-blended. Pour into crust. Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted near middle comes out clean. Cool and refrigerate.

Optional: Bake crust for 8 minutes before adding filling (I can’t tell a difference either way). Serve with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
