This time of year I start craving icebox pies. By summer I crave ice cream, or just ice. But when it starts getting warmer, there is just something comforting about an icebox pie. I found this yummy recipe on the Pillsbury site.

French Silk Chocolate Pie

1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, cut into pieces
1 cup butter, softened (do not use margarine)
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 pasteurized eggs
1/2 cup sweetened whipped cream
Chocolate curls, if desired
  • Heat oven to 450°F. Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell, using 9-inch glass pie plate. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • In 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat; cool. In small bowl with electric mixer, beat butter on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in cooled chocolate and vanilla until well blended.
  • Add eggs 1 at a time, beating on high speed 2 minutes after each addition; beat until mixture is smooth and fluffy. Pour into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.
