These tiny pies with a delicious fudgy filling hit the spot with their flaky crust and bite-sized appeal!
Sift flour, salt and sugar together into bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until it is in pea-sized pieces.
Beat egg in a small bow. Add vinegar and water. Add egg mixture to the flour mixture one tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork to mix.
Gather dough together until sides of the bowl are clean.
Chill for one hour.
Roll pie crust 1/4″ thick. Cut into 3″ circles using a cookie or biscuit cutter. Place dough circles into the cups of mini-muffin pans.
Bake at 325 degrees for 11-14 minutes or until the edges of the crust are lightly browned.
While those cool to room temperature, prepare your fudge mixture.
In a microwaveable bowl or double boiler, melt chocolate chips, condensed milk and vanilla until smooth and spoonable.
Fill each mini crust with fudge mixture using 2 spoons, or pipe it in with an icing bag and large decorating tip.
Top with roasted pecans or a sprinkle of toasted coconut for added yumminess!
Eggs guaranteed salmonella free are always available in Budapest grocery stores. I can vouch for it. But in some other locations the eggs may be of less reliable quality and therefore certain things—like homemade mayonnaise—are better left unmade. Mousse au Chocolat, however, need never be foregone, because the yolks in this recipe are cooked.
