Ingredients
  

For the crust:

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon table salt
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 8 Tablespoons cold butter (1 stick) cut into small cubes
  • 3 Tablespoons cold water

For the filling:

  • 4 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt or a very scant ½ teaspoon of table salt

Instructions
 

For the crust:

  • Mix together the flour, salt and sugar.
  • Cut in the butter cubes either using your hands, a fork, or a stand mixer.
  • Once the butter is incorporated to about the size of small peas, slowly add the water (you may not need it all) until the dough just comes together.
  • Roll out on a floured countertop and transfer to a 9-inch pie pan. Put in refrigerator while making the filling.

For the filling/making the pie:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix together butter, vanilla and brown sugar until well mixed.
  • Add in eggs one at a time, mixing well between additions.
  • Stir together cocoa powder, flour, and salt and add to wet ingredients.
  • Mix until combined but do not overmix.
  • Pour filling into prepared pie crust.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes - the center will still be a little jiggly.
  • Cool for at least an hour, serve either warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
