First, a little piece of history: despite its name, the French silk pie came to be in 1950s America. And it's easy to see why the pie, in all its forms, has become such a beloved dessert today. Perfect for a romantic night in or small-batch treat to bookend your workweek with, these individual French silk pie cups stay true to the rich, chocolaty, mousse-like texture they're known for while managing to be low-carb and keto-friendly.

Directions

To make the crust:

Step 1

In a small bowl, whisk the almond flour, cocoa powder, and sweetener together. Stir in the melted butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Step 2

Divide crumbs between two small dessert cups or ramekins and press firmly into the bottom. Set aside.

To make the filling:

Step 1

In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate, stirring until smooth. Set aside to cool for at least 5 minutes.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat the butter and the sweetener together with an electric mixer until well combined. Slowly add the melted chocolate, beating until thoroughly combined. Beat in the vanilla extract and salt.

Step 3

Add the egg and beat on medium for about 5 minutes, until the mixture is lightened and very smooth.

Step 4

Divide the mixture between the two dessert cups. Refrigerate one hour to set.

To make the decoration:

Step 1

Garnish with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream if desired.

Step 2

To make the chocolate hearts, simply melt about 1/4 ounce sugar-free dark chocolate (not unsweetened chocolate). Spoon into a Ziploc bag and snip the very tip from one of the corners. Pipe into hearts on waxed paper and refrigerate until set. Once set, carefully peel hearts off waxed paper and garnish cups or plates as desired.

I am sorry, but I do not see anything in the recipe that adds up to 33 grams of carbs...

Hi John! The macro values in bold represent a calculation of the total carbs with any sweetener removed from the recipe; about 6 grams. We hope you'll check out our blog which explains how we calculate nutritional information. https://www.peteandgerrys.com/blog/calculate-recipe-nutrition-facts.

Does a single serving of this have 33 g of carbs minus 3 g fiber? If so, how is this keto? Or is there some mistake - I don't see how the ingredients listed in the recipe could possibly add up to that many carbs unless regular chocolate is being used (there seems to be some distinction made between unsweetened and sugar-free chocolate, which I don't understand) but even then, there is only a single ounce of the first and 1/4 ounce of the second. Please clarify.
