{Thanksgiving Recipe} French Silk Pie

A couple years ago I was in charge of the pies and the whipping cream. So as much as I wish I could tell you that someone in the family had a whipped cream allergy, the real reason there is only cream on half the pie is because I grossly underestimated how much cream you need to top three pies.

This pie is a favorite on our dessert table, and this is the … [Read more...]
