French Silk Chocolate Pie I
So I was paranoid after reading all the reviews, and doubled the recipe for my first attempt. It was way too much. The pie was filled to the top in the [premade] Oreo crust, plus leftovers! Weird thing though...we never got around to eating it that day, and the next day it was hard and didn't taste good. It had tasted so good in the bowl, so I dunno what happened overnight to kill it.
Anyway, I made it again last week exactly as written (no beating the egg whites or any fancy tricks!), and I had plenty of filling! Use a good quality mixer and give each egg the whole five minutes and you'll be all right. Mine was the color of chocolate milk, it set up nicely, and everyone LOVED it. I got all conceited and started bragging, hahaha.
From now on, I won't use the store-bought crusts, they're never that good, they don't do the pie justice. So just mix up two dozen Oreos with a few tablespoons of butter.
