  • Reviews

  • “I loved this recipe!It was perfect with the almonds on top!It tasted just like the famous french silk pie at Baker’s Square and my family loved it!I was also so easy to make – thanks for this great recipe!”

  • “I’m dieting, but I made this for my husband after a really bad day at work.He told the children that there was something wrong with the pie, and no one should eat any, in a lame effort to keep it for himself.Mom, of course, made sure everyone got their share.Wonderful!”

  • “my husband bet me that i wouldn’t be able to whoop this pie up..well, today i decided to give it a try..my first attempt failed. i over beat it and the nice fluff went to syrup…so i started over and second time was a charm! ..DH will be eating his words tonight. literally :)”

  • “VERY good pie. I wasn’t sure about the steps listed. I added the melted chocolate to the sugar/butter.. then beat in the eggs. Also, I used a graham cracker crust (processed about a cup and a half of crackers and mixed in a half a stick of melted butter.. baked at 350 then cooled). It’s really delicious.”

  • “This recipe is amazing.It is so easy to follow.I made it for my mother-in-law for her birthday party instead of going to the store and buying one.Got tons of brownie points, and has become a new family favorite.My daughter can’t wait till my husband’s birthday in 2 weeks to have more.”

  • “This is a perfect french silk pie recipe.I used one deep dish pie pan and doubled the recipe and it was perfect.Everyone just loved this pie, it was gone in two days! Thank you for sharing this and ending my search to find the best recipe.”

  • “Rich, decadent, delicious!I found that a single recipe didn’t sufficiently fill the pie crust, so I always double it now.If you’re going to take the time to make it (and do make SURE to mix five minutes after each addition), go for broke and use real, sweetened whipped cream.Yum!”

  • “This is delicious pie. I used a graham cracker crust, and Kittencals stabilized whipped cream. My husband can not get enough of this pie, and he usually doesn’t care for anything sweet. Thanks for posting!”

  • “This is fantastic pie. I’ll prepare this again for sure as my husband is always asking for chocolate pie. If you’re not going to top with an inch or so of whipped cream, I’d suggest scaling the recipe up to maybe 10-12 servings as the chocolate filling didn’t quite reach the top of the crust. But I’m certainly not complaining (can’t– my mouth is full of pie)! “

  • “Yummy.Came out perfect.”

  • “This is super good.Not too rich, which I like.I topped it with KITTENCAL’s Just Like Cool Whip Topping #81374.Absolutely divine!”

  • “This was a wonderful pie! Rich and chocolatey. Only thing I changed was to use 1/2 cup sugar. Thanks Miller.”

  • “Miller, this is one great pie.My daughter ate two pieces!She’s young, she can still get away with that.We “old” fogeys ate one piece each.DH suggested adding some instant coffee next time and you can bet there will be a next time.I’m thinking that this will be one of the first recipes I teach our daughter to make.Thanks for such a great recipe.”

  • “Millie, I had a problem with your recipe, where do the eggs go?Into the melted chocolate or the butter mixture, whichever way I did put them it ended up turning into a rich chocolate sauce, oh well, maybe next time it will work out.”
