  2. Add the eggs and mix well.
  3. Add the flour and mix by hand until the dough starts to form a ball.
  4. Continue to stir until it is fairly firm.
  5. Form the dough into a ball and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.

  7. Roll the dough out and fit it into a 9-inch pie pan.
  8. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the dough.

  13. In a heavy saucepan, bring the cream to a boil.
  14. When it is boiling, pour it over the chocolate.
