Step by step recipe

1 Chocolate sweetcrust pastry : Photo of step #1Put into a mixer bowl: 200 g butter cut into small pieces, 135 g icing sugar and 2 g fine (or table) salt.

Mix together on slow speed until evenly mixed (pastry cooks say "to cream", as the consistency becomes like a cream).
5 min.
2 Chocolate sweetcrust pastry : Photo of step #2Add 50 g egg and mix again. 3 min.
3 Chocolate sweetcrust pastry : Photo of step #3Finish by adding 300 g flour and 25 g powdered cocoa all at once, then knead for a few seconds until evenly mixed.

Stop the mixer as soon as the dough is ready; it is important not to over-knead it.
3 min.
4 Chocolate sweetcrust pastry : Photo of step #4Weigh out the dough into pieces of 10-12 ounces (250-300 grams). Shape into balls, then flatten into "cakes" and wrap in plastic film.

Refrigerate until needed or freeze for later.
5 min.

Remarks

You can use this as the base for simple chocolate biscuits: make them more indulgent by adding chocolate chips to the dough at the end of kneading.
