Chocolate Silk Pie



Instructions:

For pie crust: Mix Carbquik and butter together in a medium bowl. Add boiling water; stir vigorously until very soft dough forms. Press dough firmly in 9-inch pie plate, bringing dough onto rim of plate, dusting fingers with Carbquik if dough is too sticky. Flute edge if desired. Freeze for 15 minutes, while making filling.

For filling: In large microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter on 50% power for 2 minutes or until butter and chips are melted; stir until smooth. Whisk in salt, sweetener, cocoa, eggs, cream and vanilla. Whisk until well blended. Pour chocolate mixture into frozen crust

. Bake pie at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until filling has puffed but center still wiggles, covering edges of crust if it looks like it\'s getting too dark. Mine only took 20 minutes to bake. Cool completely. Chill until ready to serve. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
