Mini French Silk Cookie Pies

Decadent mini pies with chocolate chip cookie crust and French silk filling. They are simply too cute to eat just one!

Ingredients

1
(16.5 ounce) roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1/2
cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2
cup granulated sugar
1/4
teaspoon kosher salt
3
ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1
teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2
large pasteurized eggs, at room temperature
Whipped cream, for serving
Chocolate shavings, for serving

Directions

  • 1 Prepare the Crust: Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin. Divide chocolate chip cookie dough into 24 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Place dough in prepared muffin tin cups.
  • 2 Bake dough until deep golden brown and set, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and use the bottom of a shot glass to make an impression in each cup. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. With a butter knife, gently remove each cookie cup from the tin and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  • 3 Prepare the Filling: In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl, cream the butter until smooth. Gradually beat in the granulated sugar, continuing to combine until the mixture is light-colored and very well blended. Beat in the salt. Once the melted chocolate is completely cooled, beat in the chocolate and vanilla extract. If using a standing mixer, switch to the whisk attachment. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for a full five minutes on high speed after each addition. (Don’t cheat!)
  • 4 Spoon the French silk pie filling into each of the cooled cookie cups. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Serve topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Step By Step  

French Silk pies made even better with a chocolate chip cookie crust!

As prepared by Well Plated,

These decadent pies are mini, which basically means you can eat two, or three, or more!

As far as I can tell, there are two types of people in the world: Those who find it necessary to keep an emergency stash of chocolate in their top desk drawer and those who do not.

I was a long-time a member of group chocolate, mostly because I have an “emergency” every morning at 10:01 a.m. (Actually, it happens at 9:45, but I force myself to wait until there are at least four digits on the clock before peeling back the foil.) Ever since baking these Mini French Silk Cookie Pies, however, I’ve realized that there is a third group of people out there, and I’m in it: pPople who bring mini cookie pies to the office and accidentally eat them for a morning snack. I consider my new status an upgrade.

Mini French Silk Cookie Pies are everything that is wonderful about chocolate and baking and (dare I say it?) life. They are dangerously easy to make, decadent to taste, and will make you feel like a blue-ribbon chocolate champion. Plus, they are just so darn cute!


Mini French Silk Cookie Pies

The crust of these mini pies is a lightly crispy, ever addictive chocolate chip cookie. To keep it fast, easy, and yummy, use a tube of Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough.

Now the magic happens. Roll the dough into 24 balls and pop them right into a mini muffin tin.

Let the cookie dough bake until deeply golden. While everyone loves an ultra-gooey, molten chocolate chip cookie, we need to be sure the cookie crust is set to hold our luscious filling.

Speaking of luscious, French silk pie filling has to be one of the best-kept secrets of baking kind. It is ridiculously easy to make, requires only basic ingredients you likely have on hand, and tastes like smooth chocolate velvet. (Why have you not left the computer to go make this already?)

Whip up the filling and then scoop it into the cooled cups. You may have a little filling left over, which I discovered tastes fabulous on graham crackers, berries, or piled en masse on top of the pies.

A bit of whipped cream, a touch of chocolate curl, and Mini French Silk Cookie Pies are yours to enjoy. They make a perfect party dessert or potluck addition, and I especially recommend them at 10:01 a.m. You know, in case of emergency.

Tips  

Be sure to whip the French silk batter for a full 5 minutes after each egg is added. It’s essential for the batter’s smoothness and airiness.
