French Silk Pie
Please note this recipe (like most French silk pies recipes) uses raw eggs in the filling. You may feel more comfortable using pasteurized whole eggs that can be found in the dairy department of large grocery stores.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Ensure your Pappy’s Pie Dough Crusts are thawed, but still chilled. Roll out on floured surface to about 12” in diameter and ¼” thick.
  2. Poke unbaked shell with fork to prevent shrinking during baking. You may also use pie weights, or dried beans to fill take the place of the filling during baking.
  3. Once the edges of your crust turn golden brown, remove the weights and cook a little longer on its own. It should not take more than 15-20 minutes total.
  4. Let cool completely before filling.
  5. In small microwave safe bowl melt 4 ounces of unsweetened baking chocolate until smooth when stirred (about 45 seconds on high). Set aside to cool.
  6. In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat butter and sugar until fluffy (about 1 to 2 minutes).
  7. When melted chocolate is cooled, drizzle it over the butter/sugar mixture.
  8. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  9. Beat the mixture thoroughly until combined. If you are using a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment
  10. Turn your mixer to a medium speed and over a period of 15 to 20 minutes add in the four eggs, one at a time, leaving about 5 minutes between each egg addition.
  11. Once the pie filling is well mixed, pour it into the baked pie shell.
  12. Smooth out the pie filling and place pie in the refrigerator to chill for at least two hours (preferably longer).
  13. Plop a heap of whipped cream and garnish with a few chocolate curls

Instructions
  1. Set a rimmed baking sheet on the center rack in the oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Ensure your Pappy’s Pie Dough Crusts are thawed but still chilled. Roll out on floured surface to about 12” in diameter and ¼” thick. Fold and place in deep dish 9" Pie Pan. Trim excess crust and form flute or crimp to form decorative edge.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix pumpkin, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves until well combined. Add eggs, evaporated milk, and heavy cream.
  4. Mix everything until completely smooth (about 3 minutes in my KitchenAid mixer on medium speed). Pour pie filling into an unbaked deep dish pie shell.
  5. Bake the pie for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
  6. Bake for an additional 50-55 minutes until the center of the pie does not jiggle (loosely).
  7. Whipped Cream: Beat heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and continue to whip until medium peaks form. Serve immediately.
  8. It's best to allow the pie to cool on the counter and then chill it in the refrigerator before serving. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
