ingredients
1 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour

1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1/2 cup Unsalted butter (very cold and cut into small pieces)
2-3 tablespoons Ice Cold Water

For the Pie Crust: Combine the flour, salt, sugar and butter in a food processor and pulse until coarse, with small marbles of butter remaining. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the ice water and pulse until crumbly, and dough holds when squeezed together. Add another sprinkle of water if too dry, but do not overmix.

Roll out dough on floured surface. Press into pie plate, trim to leave 1-inch excess around edges, fold under and flute edges. Cut a piece of parchment or nonstick foil to the size of the pie, and use to line pie crust. Fill with pie weights, and bake until golden, about 15 minutes.

Step 5
Reduce heat to 325F.

ingredients
3 oz Bittersweet Chocolate (very finely chopped)
