Chocolate Silk Pie | Dessert

This is one of my favourite desserts to bring to potlucks because of its simplicity and versatility. The secret ingredient is silken tofu, which creates a base that’s both firm and silky. Top each individual piece with Sweetened Whipped Coconut Cream just before serving.







Ingredients


½ recipe Flakey Classic Piecrust

2 (350 g) packages extra-firm silken tofu

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 tablespoons cocoa powder (I like extra-dark)

½ cup of sugar

1½ cups chopped non-dairy chocolate or

chocolate chips




Instructions


• Preheat oven to 400°F.


• Prepare the pie crust according to recipe directions and roll out in between two sheets of parchment paper until about ¼ inch thick.

• Flip over the parchment to gently place the crust into a standard-size glass pie pan. Fold or flute the crust and pierce bottom several times evenly with a fork. Bake for 20 minutes, or until light golden brown. Remove from oven.


• To prepare the filling, blend the tofu, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and sugar in a food processor until completely

smooth, scraping down sides as needed.

• In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and drizzle into the tofu mixture and blend until completely incorporated. Spread

filling into baked pie shell and let cool at room temperature for 1 hour before transferring to the refrigerator to chill until slightly firm, 4 hours up to overnight. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
