Pseudo-French Silk Pie

YIELD: 8-12 servings of 8-9 inch pie
POINTS/Serv: 9-5
  • 1 Ready to serve 8-9" pie crust

  • 16 oz Silken Tofu, drained

  • 8-12 oz Semi- or Bitter-sweet Baking chocolate

  • 1 T Vanilla

  1. After draining tofu, cut into pieces.

  2. Blend in food processor* until very smooth.

  3. Add vanilla. Blend again.

  4. Melt chocolate and add to tofu/vanilla mixture.

  5. Blend until completely mixed.** Mixture will have thickened some.

  6. Pour mixture into pie crust.

  7. Chill until firm -- about 1 hour.

*You can use a blender, but it's harder to get the mixture thoroughly incorporated.

**Start off with small amounts of chocolate if you don't want an ultra-rich pie. I used 12 oz and ended up cutting the entire thing into 12 slices because it was so rich. Also, I used all bitter-sweet chocolate, but think a combo of semi- and bitter- would make an excellent dessert. Something else I may try is a white chocolate pie. Then there's marbled pie...oh the potential this recipes has!!
