WAYNE - The Barndt family's favorite pie recipe has remained consistent for decades.
Since way back in the 1950s, nothing has been able to knock this French silk chocolate pie off the pedestal.
It's beginning to look like nothing ever will.
When Lisa (Steinman) Barndt married into the family in 1984 she acquired the recipe along with her wedding band, in a manner of speaking.
"In 1959 my in-laws, Barb and Charlie Barndt, got married. This recipe came from my father-in-law's sister, Phyllis Cotton," who lives in Navarre, Ohio. "She passed it along" to the newlyweds in Wayne.
Barb began making it herself, and the French silk pie became a staple, "generally for birthdays.
"I know my husband Doug - from his earliest years - remembers (his mother) making it for his birthday," said Lisa Barndt.
"And when we married 30 years ago, I started in making it" as well. To this day, "I continue to make it for Doug's birthday in December every year."
