French Silk Chocolate Pie

I will always remember that I first made this when I was about 12 and staying with my bestest friend and her family at their mountain cabin.  We had so much fun, and this pie was (and is) so good…

Crust:
25 crushed vanilla wafers
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup melted butter
Mix together, press into pie pan, bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, and cool.

Filling:
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted (I have seen similar recipes with more chocolate – maybe could handle 2 squares?)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

Topping:
Sweetened whipped cream

Cream butter and sugar in electric mixer.  Add melted chocolate and vanilla.  Add one egg and beat 5 minutes at medium speed.  Repeat with second egg. Turn into cooled pie crust and chill 2-3 hours.  Top with sweetened whipped cream and chill until serving time.
