… from the California Kitchen
How you doin’? This creamy, sumptuous chocolate dessert was one of the melt-in-your-mouth recipes that I originally developed for T.R.’s Restaurants in Wichita, Kansas. I don’t think old Teddy ever tasted anything as good as this. I still make it for friends and family when a chocolate dessert is on the menu. This goes to prove that a good recipe can outlive the life of a president or even a presidential-named restaurant.
My French Silk Pie features a short-cut Oreo cookie crust, rich and creamy chocolate filling, and is topped with homemade whipped cream and chocolate shavings! This is the perfect end-of-the meal dessert!
