I put a layer of homemade, sweetened whipped cream on top and garnished with chocolate shavings. The taste and texture was PERFECT. The only problem I have is with the reviewers. I don't understand what the big deal is about the amount yielded in the original recipe if you are using a regular-depth 8 or 9 inch pie dish. I usually read reviews prior to making a recipe and usually find them helpful, but this time I'm disappointed. I doubled the batch of filling due to the amount of complaints I read, and well, I could have piled on all of that filling to the point of an overflow...as another cook did according to a picture posted of this recipe, but why would I? It is already a very rich filling and to put THAT much in?! A "French Silk Pie" is supposed to have a generous layer of whipped cream on top and I'm sure that's what no one is doing (according to a lot of the pictures posted of this recipe). Luckily it was so good that my brother-in-law requested another pie the next day so the second pie did not go to waste. So WARNING: If you want more filling, try doing 1 1/2 of the recipe before you go doubling it.
