You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this easy recipe. Let's get started!
Step 1. Roll pastry into pie pan, crimp the edges, and let chill in the freezer. Then line crust with parchment or foil, add pie weights and bake.

Step 3. Use an electric mixer with a whisk attachment to whip the cream in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form.
Step 4. Let the whipped cream chill in the refrigerator.
Step 5. Fill a saucepan with about 1/2 inch of water and bring it to a simmer. Set a heatproof bowl on top and whisk the sugar, eggs, and salt inside.
Step 6. Remove the egg mixture from the heat. Set it on a hot pad or towel and let it cool for 5 minutes.
Step 7. Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat it at half-power in 30-second increments until the chocolate melts when you stir it.
Step 8. After the egg mixture has cooled for 5 minutes, beat it with an electric mixer on medium-low speed until it’s completely cooled.
Step 9. Stir the melted chocolate and vanilla into the egg mixture.
Step 10. Use an electric mixer on medium speed to beat the butter in a large mixing bowl until it’s light and fluffy.
Step 11. Add the chocolate mixture to the butter. Beat on medium-high speed for 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 12. Fold about a third of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture, then fold in the rest of the whipped cream.
Step 13. Spread the French silk pie filling into the cooled crust and let chill.
Step 14. Use an electric mixer with a whisk attachment to whip the heavy cream, vanilla, and confectioners’ sugar until stiff peaks form.
