Reynolds Kitchens tip

Bake this French Silk Pie in a bakeware pan so every slice slides right out.


  • 1 pre-made refrigerated 9” pie dough
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate and cooled to room temperature

  • Optional Garnish: chocolate shavings
  • 1 Reynolds® Bakeware Non-Stick Pie Pan


Step 1

PREHEAT the oven to 400°.

Step 2

ROLL the premade pie dough onto a clean surface dusted with flour until it expands by an additional 1/3 size.

Step 3

FORM the dough to a Reynolds® Bakeware Non-Stick Pie Pan and fold in the dough around the outside and flute.

Step 4

DOCK the dough using a fork and place a 1” foot sheet of Reynolds Wrap® down into the bottom of the dough and to cover it.

Step 5

BAKE in the oven at 400° for 6 minutes or until lightly browned and then cool to room temperature.

Step 6

WHIP 1 cup of heavy whipping cream in a standing mixer with the whisk attachment on high speed until stiff peaks are formed and then immediately cool.

Step 7

WHISK together the eggs and sugar over low heat until it reaches 160° and set aside.

Step 8

WHIP 1 cup of unsalted butter in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment on high speed until it is light and fluffy, about 6 minutes.

Step 9

POUR in the egg and sugar mixture along with the melted chocolate and whip on high speed for 5 minutes until it becomes fluffy.

Step 10

FOLD in the 1 cup of cooled whipped cream and transfer the batter to the pre-cooked pie dough and cool completely in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

FINISH the pie by adding on the 2 cups of sweet cream and optional chocolate shavings garnish.
