A Royal Recipe With Kenmore's Help

Royal French Silk Pie

During the holidays, it’s tough to get bogged down in the cooking and baking of the season. When Kenmore sent us their stand-mixer, we put it to the test with one of our most decadent dessert recipes. Royal French Silk pie takes the traditional chocolate confection to the next level of deliciousness. Why don’t you treat your sweet tooth to something delicious with this Royal French Silk pie recipe and make it easy with this Kenmore mixer?

First, let’s talk about the mixer. It’s the Kenmore Elite 6 qt. 600 Watts Bowl Lift Stand Mixer. It’s a beautiful industrial design that features smooth and quiet operation. Plus, any front attachments from another mixer will work on the Kenmore, just pop them on right behind the logo! There are 10 speeds, so it’ll allow you to effortlessly knead, mix, whip, and whisk anything you can throw at it. Plus, it has a 5 year warranty, so you’ll know that Kenmore has you covered. What’s our favorite feature? The LED-illuminated bowl. It allows midnight bakers like us to cook without lighting up the whole house! 

Now, this Royal French Silk Pie recipe is fairly complex since everything is made from scratch, but you’ll see how much easier Kenmore makes everything. You can click the link above to get the ingredient list, and now we’ll get to the walkthrough. 



First, you’ll want to gather all the ingredients and preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Butter a 9-inch pie pan (we used a disposable tin, a sturdier one will work better) and put it to the side. Chop the pecans finely.



Add the pecans, flour, sugar, and salt into your mixer and mix on a medium level, cutting in the cold butter. The consistency will look like a coarse meal. Press this evenly into the pie tin and bake for 20-25 minutes or until it's golden brown and firm to a gentle touch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. On to the filling!



In a mixer fitted with your paddle attachment, combine the butter and sugar until it becomes fluffy, about 2 minutes. While the machine is still running, add the melted chocolate and vanilla. We recommend Heilala Vanilla Extract from New Zealand to really make this a royal dessert. 



While the machine is still running, add the eggs, one at a time. Beat for five minutes at a medium speed. The mix will look gloppy at first, but will fluff up throughout the five minutes. Plus, with Kenmore's timer feature, you'll know exactly when it's time for the next egg!


The mixture is ready when it looks (and tastes) like what a French Silk filling should. It'll be airy, light, and have a richness when you taste it. Pour the filling into the COOLED pie crust (you don't want to cook the egg) and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. 



To make the Maple Whipped Cream for the topping, make sure you've frozen the beater and bowl of your stand mixer for the 4 hours the pie is in the fridge. Gather the whipping cream, maple syrup, and chopped chocolate bar. Add the whipping cream into the mixer and beat until it forms soft peaks (see below). 



Add in maple syrup and chopped chocolate bar and mix at a higher speed until it becomes a thick whipped cream. Remove pie from the fridge and top with the Maple Whipped Cream. Enjoy! See, with a little help from Kenmore and a walkthrough by Recipe4Living, it isn't that hard after all!
