Homemade Chocolate Pie Crust 1 Picture


  • 1/8 cup all-purpose flour

Step 1

Combine the flour, cocoa, salt and butter into a food processor and pulse until it's crumbly. Next add one tablespoon of water at a time, pulsing after each addition until it forms in to large clumps and resembles coarse wet sand.

Form into a round disc and wrap into plastic wrap or place into a quart-size re-sealable bag. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to let it rest.

Roll out dough evenly. Carefully roll the dough around your rolling pin and carefully lay it over either a 9 inch pie plate or a round tart pan.

If making a pie, trim the edges and leave an inch overhang. Fold the inch overhang underneath to form a rim and crimp with fingertips.

Bake according to your pie directions.

Note: For some fun try adding in a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne for a Mexican hot chocolate pie crust!
