  • Portion size 23 servings


  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold cubed butter
  • 1/4 cup cold cubed shortening
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • ice water to measure


In large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles fine crumbs with a few larger pieces.

In liquid measure, whisk together egg yolk and vinegar. Add enough ice water to make 1/3 cup (75 mL). Drizzle over flour mixture; using fork, briskly stir until dough holds together. Gather dough and press into disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.)
