  • 1 cup(s) heavy cream chilled
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) water
  • 8 ounce(s) bittersweet chocolate melted and cooled
  • 1 tablespoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1 9 inch pie shell baked and cooled


  1. 1. Whip cream with electric mixer on medium high speed, whip cream to stiff peaks, 2-3 minutes. Transfer whipped cream to small bowl and refrigerate.

With electric mixer on medium speed, beat until egg mixture is thickened and registers 160 degrees, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to beat egg mixture until fluffy and cooled to room temperature, about 8 minutes.
  3. 3. Beat, fold and cool add chocolate and vanilla to cool egg mixture and beat until incorporated. Beat in butter, a few pieces at a time, until well combined. Using spatula, fold in whipped cream until no streaks of white remain. Scrape filling into pie shell and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours and up to 24 hours. Serve.
