Ingredients

  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp All Purpose Flour (145g)
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil (55g) Solid
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon White Granulated Sugar
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Ice Water

Instructions

  • Place the flour, sugar and salt into the food processor and pulse to combine.
  • Add the coconut oil (must be solid, not melted) and pulse until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Add 3 Tbsp ice water and pulse to combine. It should look like a dough now and if you break off a piece and roll it in your hands it should easily roll into a ball. If it doesn't then add the remaining Tbsp of ice water and pulse to combine once again.
  • Remove the dough from the food processor and transfer to a floured surface.
  • Roll the dough into a big round ball.
  • Using a rolling pin roll it out from side to side into a a giant round that can fit over your pie dish.
  • Carefully roll it up in your rolling pin and then unroll it over your 9-inch round pie dish. Or just lift it up and place it over your pie dish, tucking it in along the bottom and sides of the pie dish to fit properly.
  • Take a scissors and trim off any excess dough around the edges.
  • Place your pie crust into the fridge while you prepare your pie filling.

  2. If you're making a savory pie and would prefer to omit the sugar then you can do so.
