Sometimes I sit down to write a post and get complete writers block. That sometimes is now. I pretty much just want to say: “Oreo cookie crust + chocolate mousse filling + cookies and cream topping = total yum. Enough said.” I mean really. Is there much more to say?

A homemade pie requires a certain amount of actual hands on work that really can’t be avoided. You can see that in a homemade pie. The imperfections in the crimping and parts of filling bubbling out after baked. …

Chocolate French Silk Pie

Baker Bettie Fall, Holiday, Pie, Sweets 25 Comments

Rich and decadent chocolate french silk pie recipe. This pie requires no baking and is a rich silky chocolate filling with whipped cream topping and chocolate shavings.  I fully admit that I have avoidance issues when it comes to pie. I rarely make them. And it has nothing to do with disliking pie. Pie is probably one of my favorite …
