If you have fresh peaches, consider this incredibly good French silk pie.

A French silk pie is usually made with dark chocolate, this one-use white chocolate.  They are usually made with raw eggs.  In this recipe, they are cooked.


  • 1 nine-inch-deep dish pie shell, baked and cooled
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 quarter-ounce packet non-flavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoons water
  • 10 ounces white chocolate wafers or other quality coating or eating chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter cut into pieces and softened
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavor
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups fresh peaches peeled and diced
  • peaches for garnish and topping


  1. Mix the sugar and gelatin powder together.  Add the eggs, sugar mixture, and water to a large saucepan.  Cook the egg and sugar mixture over low to medium low heat while beating constantly with an electric mixture.  Continue cooking and beating until the mixture starts to thicken and reaches 165 degrees being careful not to scorch the eggs.  Remove from heat.
  2. Immediately mix the butter into the hot egg mixture with the electric mixer until smooth.  As soon as the butter is melted and while the mixture is still hot, add the white chocolate wafers.  Continue beating until it is completely mixed together and cooled to room temperature.
  3. Whip the first measure of whipping cream in your stand-type mixer with the whip attachment until stiff peaks form.   Add the vanilla flavor.   Add the peaches.
  4. Change from the whip attachment to the paddle attachment.  Scrape the white chocolate mixture into the bowl with the whipped cream.  Turn the mixer onto the slow speed setting and gently fold the chocolate mixture into the whipped cream.  Mix until the white chocolate is mixed into the whipped cream.  Scrape the filling into the prepared pie pan.  Set aside and let chill.
  5. When you are about ready to serve, whip the second measure of whipping cream.  As the cream is whipping and after the peaks start to form, drizzle in the sugar and add the flavor.  Beat until stiff peaks form.  Top your pie with peaches and whipped cream.
