Chocolate Pie Crust Recipe

1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons powdered cocoa
4 teaspoons sugar
1/3 cup Shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons cold water

Sift together flour, salt, powdered cocoa and sugar.
Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture has the consistency of cornmeal and small peas.
Stir together vanilla extract and cold water. Gradually sprinkle enough of this over the flour mixture to dampen it. Blend with a fork. Place the dough on wax paper; lift the paper all around the dough and knead while holding the paper until the dough shapes into a ball. Then let it stand for 15 minutes.
Roll out the dough and fit it loosely into a pie pan. Do not stretch it. Flute the edge. Fill to taste. Or bake as a pie shell in a preheated 425 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool.
