About the Recipe

French Silk Pie

Tip One: Read the recipe through COMPLETELY before you begin! There are a few different components. Nothing too challenging or technical, but you’ll need a few dishes. It’s totally worth it… promise!

Tip Two: Unlike traditional French Silk Pie, this one contains no raw eggs. You’ll need an instant read thermometer to make sure the eggs are cooked to the correct temperature to make this dish safe for everyone to eat.

Tip Three: Make sure to use a deep dish pie plate, there’s a lot of filling in this recipe! I like this pie dish with a lid to transfer the pie safely, even after topping it with the whipped cream.
