Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Roll out the pie crust to about 1 1/2 inches wider than the pie dish, fit it in, and roll and crimp the edge.

  3. Dock the bottom of the crust by piercing it a few times with a fork, then line it with parchment and weigh it down with dry beans or ceramic pie weights.

  4. Bake the crust until golden brown and crisp (about 30 to 35 minutes), and allow to cool completely before filling.

  5. Place the chocolate chips, water, cocoa, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl, and microwave in short, 30-second bursts, stirring after each interval until the mixture is melted and smooth (this can also be done over a double boiler).

  6. Fold in the whipped cream and vanilla extract.

  7. Transfer the filling to the pre-baked crust, and chill in the refrigerator until set (about 2 hours).

  8. Pipe swirls of sweetened whipped cream over the chocolate filling, then garnish with chocolate shavings.
