French Silk Pie

Happy Hump Day readers!

It's another one of those crazy weeks--I'm hitting my breaking point with exhaustion and am also fighting a bad cold.  I love my students but am looking forward to the end of the week!

For today's post, I bring you a DELICIOUS and EASY recipe!

Last weekend after our Pumpkin Patch adventures, Bryce and I had plans for dessert and wine with SEG and her main squeeze.  I knew that my French Silk Pie was just the right dessert for the evening.  I also make this every year for Thanksgiving and it is always a huge hit!

  24. Looks so good but would you use egg substitute instead of having raw eggs in the uncooked mix?
