Chocolate-Cream Cheese Satin Pie

by Kelli H. on May 25, 2012

I made this pie for my mom for Mother’s Day. I’ve also made it before for one of David’s graduations.

IT IS SO GOOD!
I’m not exaggerating, this pie is definitely diet-breaking worthy. It’s very rich and indulgent, but that’s what makes it amazing. It’s also really easy to make, doesn’t take much time, and a total crowd pleaser.
Sorry for the pretty lame pictures, but it was served on these beautiful blue paper plates over at my Nanny’s house. I also only had my point and shoot available. I don’t really like bringing my DSLR with me places, unless it’s something really special! Not that Mother’s Day isn’t…
I’m pretty much day dreaming right now about digging into this again. Go make it for someone you love, or ya know, for yourself. 
Chocolate-Cream Cheese Satin Pie
Recipe from Cooking Pleasures April/May 2007
Crust:
1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
5 tablespoons melted butter
Filling:
10 oz semisweet chocolate
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar, divided
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
Garnish: 
about 1 oz grated semisweet chocolate
1. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Combine crust ingredients in a bowl. Press crumb crust into the bottom of sides of a 9″ pie pan. Bake for 8 minutes, cool on a wire rack. 
2. Melt 10 oz. chocolate in medium heatproof bowl over saucepan filled with 1″ simmering water. Stir frequently until chocolate is melted. 
3. Beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar in a large bowl of medium speed. Beat in melted chocolate and blend until smooth. 
4. Beat cream, remaining 1/4 cup powdered sugar and vanilla in a large bowl on medium-high speed until firm but not stiff peaks. Fold half of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until blended, spread over the crust. Spread remaining whipped cream over the top and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons grated chocolate. Refrigerate 4 hours before serving.

The title is so fitting for this. But even so, I will make this and eat it all. Sharing is not involved.

How perfect is this recipe? You see, the other night I tried to make chocolate chess pie for my french family and it was a bit of a fail. Darn metric units. Anyways, this recipe may help me redeem myself πŸ™‚ Thanks!
