Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 1 Pie Dough
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) cold butter
  • ½ cup ice plus ½ cup water to make super cold ice water
  1. Whisk the first 4 ingredients together, then with a pastry knife cut the butter into the flour mix until it resembles small pebbles.
  2. Add ice water a tablespoon at a time, using a wooden spoon to incorporate it in.
  3. When the mixture starts to resemble dough, form a ball with your hands and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or if you’re impatient, like me, freeze for at least 30 minutes.)
  4. Note: When you’re ready to begin making the pie, roll the dough out first, put it into the baking dish, poke the bottom with a fork about 10-15 times, and then stick the dish in the freezer until your filling is ready.
