 Recipe Method for Mississippi Mud Pie

Step 1:
To make the pastry, sift the flour and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl. Rub in the butter with the fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar and enough cold water to mix to a soft dough. Wrap the dough and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Step 2:
Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured work surface and use to line a 23 cm or 9 inch loose based tart tin or ceramic pie dish. Line with baking parchment and fill with baking beans.
Bake in a preheated oven at 190 C or 375 F for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and take out the beans and parchment. Bake the pastry case for a further 10 minutes.

Step 3:
To make the filling, beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl and gradually beat in the eggs with the cocoa powder. Melt the chocolate and beat it into the mixture with the single cream and chocolate extract.

Step 4:
Reduce the oven temperature to 160 C or 325 F. Pour the mixture into the pastry case and bake for 45 minutes or until the filling has set gently.

Step 5:

Allow the mud pie to cool completely, then transfer it to a serving plate. Cover with the whipped cream. Decorate the pie with the chocolate flakes and curls and then chill until ready to serve.
