We don’t know which part about these Personal Chocolate Pies we love more, the buttery crust or the fudgy filling.

  1. 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  3. 1 teaspoon sugar
  4. 1 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch pieces
  5. 4 to 8 tablespoons ice water
  1. ½ cup unsalted butter
  2. 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  3. ¾ cup granulated sugar
  4. ¼ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  5. 2 large eggs
  6. ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  7. 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  8. ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  1. For dough: In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse together flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter; pulse until crumbly. With processor running, add ice water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until dough just comes together. Divide dough in half; shape into two disks. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours.
  2. For filling: In a medium bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, combine butter and chocolate; stir until melted. Remove from heat; whisk in sugars. Let cool 5 minutes. Add eggs, whisking to combine. In a small bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, and salt. Gently fold flour mixture into butter mixture just until combined. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough disk ⅛ inch thick. Using a 5-inch round cutter, cut 12 rounds, rerolling scraps as needed. Press one round into bottoms and up sides of 6 (3½-inch) skillets. Divide cooled filling among skillets. Top each skillet with remaining dough rounds. Fold edges under, and crimp as desired. Cut 6 vents in top of each pie.
  4. Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
