Directions:
Using an electric hand-held mixer, whip cream until stiff peaks form, 2-3 minutes. Cover and refrigerate.
Combine eggs, sugar and water in a large heatproof bowl set over a medium saucepan filled with 1/2 inch of barely simmering water. Using an electric hand-held mixer, beat mixture on medium speed until thickened and registers 160 degrees, 7-10 minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to beat mixture until fluffy and cooled to room temperature, about 8 minutes.
Beat in the chocolate and vanilla until incorporated. Beat in butter, a few pieces at a time, until well combined. Using a spatula, gently fold in the whipped cream until no streaks remain. Scrape the filling into the cooled pie crust and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours and up to 24 hours. If desired, top with lightly sweetened whipped cream
