I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have too much experience making French silk pie. It was only when I had my own kitchen and lots of extra time on my hands that I really took the time to experiment with different recipes and honestly, it’s amazing and I can’t believe I didn’t give it much of a chance before. And, given that it was relatively easy to make paleo-friendly, I made sure to focus on a French silk pie recipe that would not only taste good, but it would be something that I could eat on a regular basis without feeling like I’m overindulging in desserts.

What is French Silk Pie?

In case you aren’t familiar with this decadent dessert, French silk pie is made with a pastry or cookie crust, rich and creamy chocolate filling, and topped with whipped cream.

It’s absolutely amazing when chilled and allowed enough time to set, something I tend to struggle with (ehem) because I know how decadent this is. You’ll know exactly what I mean once you try it!
