  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured counter and use to line a 9inch/23cm loose bottom tart pan or ceramic pie dish. Line with parchment paper and fill with dried beans. Bake in a preheated oven, 375F/190C, for 15min. Remove from the oven and take out the paper and beans. Bake the pie shell for an additional 10min.
  3. To make the filling, beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl and gradually beat in the eggs, with the cocoa. Melt the chocolate and beat it into the mixture, with the light cream and chocolate extract.
  4. Reduce the oven temperature to 325F/160C. Pour the mixture into the pie shell and bake for 45min., or until the filling has set gently. Let cool completely, then transfer to a serving plate.
  5. Cover the mud pie with the whipped cream, decorate with chocolate flakes and curls and let chill, ready to serve.
