Chocolate Satin Pie

You will think you've died and gone to silky satin chocolate heaven when you bite into this luscious pie. It is one of my family's favorite desserts of all time!!! 
3 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter-softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 pie shell- baked (chocolate graham cracker crust is delish too!)
1 cup whipped heavy cream lightly sweetened with vanilla & sugar
Extra whipped cream for topping
chocolate shavings

Cream butter & sugar till smooth & fluffy
Over a double broiler melt baking chocolate, whisk in cocoa powder. Add eggs, one at a time and beat with mixer 2 minutes after adding each egg.
Pour chocolate mix into butter & sugar mixture and beat on high for about 5 minutes. 
Fold in 1 cup sweetened whip cream & pour pie filling into prepared pie crust.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 3 hours. Top with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
