Chocolate Pie Crust

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 cups of all purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

3 Tbsp sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup shortening

1/4 cup vodka

1/4 cup ice water


Combine cocoa, flour, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter and shortening. Add liquid 1 tablespoon at a time. You most likely will not use all the liquid. Wrap your dough and let it rest in the fridge for an hour or two. It will be hard to work with when you first take it out, as the butter will have hardened again. Once you start rolling it out, it becomes extremely easy to work with. Note: this recipe made enough dough for a double crust on a deep dish pie. For a single crust, you can cut the recipe in half.
