  • ISO: Tippins Restaurant -Name of Pie & receipe of course : )
    I use to live in Dallas and we had Tippins Restaurants there. They were famous for their pies (similar to Bakers Square). Anyway, I can't for the life of me, think of the name of my favorite pie so that I can try to find a recipe.

    It was a french silk pie filling layered on top of a bavarian cream layer. Whipped cream on top. Does this sound familiar to you?

    I'll be happy to find out the name (it is driving me CRAZY :)and I would be even happier to find a recipe.

    Thanks a bunch!

    You might want to check out Baker's Square for a similar pie. I think they took over Tippins.

    I think the pie was just called French Silk Pie. Tippins was one of our favorite restaurants. The had the best hamburgers .And all the pies were great.They suddenly closed all their restaurants.Our local grocery store carries their pies.I have never bought one .They are to expensive.

    Thank you for the info. AlabamaNeeNee. I will give them a call.

    I did check on the Bakers Square website, but the French Silk Pie was just the chocolate portion.

    Too bad they closed everywhere. They were great.

    I found this doing a search on google: It is a Tippins recipe.


    Here is a recipe you could try:

    Black Bottom Pie

    1/2 c Sugar
    1 tb Cornstarch
    2 c Scalded milk
    1/4 c Cold water
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract
    4 Egg whites
    1 9" baked pastry shell
    1 tb Unflavored gelatin
    4 Egg yolks, beaten
    1 ts Vanilla
    6 oz Semi-sweet chocolate bits
    1/2 c Sugar

    Combine cornstarch & 1/2 c sugar. Slowly add milk to egg yolks, then
    stir into sugar & cornstarch mixture. Cook in double boiler, stirring
    constantly, until it coats spoon. Remove from heat, add vanilla.
    Remove one cup of this custard mixture and stir in chocolate bits
    until melted. Pour chocolate mixture inyo pastry shell & chill.
    Soften gelatin in water and add to remaining hot custard; stir until
    gelatin is dissolved. Add flavoring. Chill until slightly thickened.
    Beat eggs whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar
    while beating, until stiff. Fold custard/gelatin into egg whites and
    pile over chocolate layer in pie shell. Chill until set and garnish
    with chopped walnuts.
