Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut I use Bob's Red Mil
  • 1/2 cup finely ground pistachios
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 stick butter cut into pats and chilled until ice cold (I stick it in the freezer)
  • ice cold water

Instructions

  • In a small skillet toast the coconut, stirring often. About 8 minutes. Cool and add to a mini food processor and pulse until ground.
  • Place coconut, pistachios, flour, sugar and salt into the bowl of your food processor, fitted with the blade attachment. Quickly pulse a few times to combine.
  • Add in butter and pulse a few times, butter should still be in large clumps. While pulsing, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of ice cold water. Turn the dough out onto a clean surface, form into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill the dough for 30 minutes before rolling it out and fitting it into a pie plate.
  • Once you have crimped the edges, chill the pie crust for 15 to 20 minutes before adding the filling and baking.
  • *The pie crust edges tend to brown quickly, cover with foil or a pie crust shield.
