The ingredients we need for one pie (10 portions), in grams (1 cup = 250
g; 1 tablespoon = 20 g):
For the dough:
* flour - 1.75 cups = 1.75 x 250 g = 437.5 g = approx. 440 g
* salt - a pinch = half of a tablespoon = 20 g : 2 = 10 g
* butter (cut into small pieces) - 3/4 cup = 3/4 x 250 g = 187.5 g =
approx. 190 g
* cold water – 4.5 tablespoons = 4.5 x 20 g = 90 g (= 90 ml)
For the filling:
* unsweetened cocoa - 3 tablespoons = 3 x 20 g = 60 g
* sugar - 1 cup = 1 x 250 g = 250 g
* water - 1 cup = 1 x 250 g = 250 g (= 250 ml)
* butter - 2 tablespoons = 2 x 20 g = 40 g
* flour - 1/3 cup = 1/3 x 250 g = 83.(3) g = approx. 80 g
* 3 egg yolks
* milk - 2/3 cup = 2/3 x 250 g = 166.(6) g = approx. 170 g (=approx. 170
ml)
* vanilla - 1 teaspoon = 1 x 20 g = 20 g (= approx. 20 ml)
(we use a total of 440 g + 80 g = 520 g of flour and a total of 190 g + 40 g
= 230 g of butter)

Price of a pie (10 portions):
520 g flour costs: 520 g / 1000 g x 3.50 lei = 1.82 lei
10 g salt costs: 10 g / 1000 g x 1.70 lei = 0.017 lei
230 g butter costs: 230 g/250 g x 7.99 lei=7.3508 lei
90 ml of cold water costs: 90 ml/500 ml x 2.59 lei = 0.4662

250 g sugar costs: 250 g/1000 g x4.29 lei=1.0725 lei
250 ml of water costs: 250 ml / 500 ml x 2.59 lei = 1.295 lei
170 ml milk costs: 170 ml/1000 ml x 5.49 lei = 0.9(3) lei =
approx 0.93 lei
20 ml vanilla costs: 20 ml/20 ml x 2.60 lei = 2.60 lei

Baking temperatures in ˚ Farenheit:
(˚ F = 9/5 x ˚C + 32)
1. 210 ˚C = 9/5 x 210 + 32 = 378 + 32 = 410 ˚F
2. 180 ˚C = 9/5 x 180 + 32 = 324 + 32 = 356 ˚F
The ratio between flour and butter:
520 g / 190 g = approx. 2.74
