Exclamation ISO Reliable French Silk Pie Recipe

Hi All - I am making Christmas Eve dinner and I want to make french silk for dessert.

For whatever reason, in ALL of my cookbooks, I do not have a single recipe for it! I couldn't find it on Cook's Illustrated either. AND I couldn't find it here!

Given this is only days away and I want it to be good the first time, does anyone have a good reliable recipe for this pie?

I am planning to prebake a regular pie crust and make my own whipped cream topping. It's just the chocolate filling - I'm not super sure how it goes.

Thank you!

Thank you Andy for googling French Silk Pie for me, I could have never done it on my own.

I did end up using a random recipe:
