Ingredients
  • For the crust:
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 sticks (1/2 cup) unsalted butter- diced and chilled
  • 2–4 tablespoons iced water
  • Chocolate filling:
  • 8 oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate – melted and cooled
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter – softened
  • 1 ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. First mix flour, salt and sugar in a medium-size bowl, then add pieces of chilled unsalted butter. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons ice water and using your hands knead until dough comes together , DO NOT OVERDO IT!!! (If it’s still crumbly, add water a tablespoon at a time, up to 2 more tablespoons, but don’t use too much water or the crust will shrink while baking).
