Add a healthy substitute to your delicious pie crust, from our friends at Whole Foods
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 3 ounces (about 1/2 cup) refined solid (not liquid) coconut oil
- 8 tablespoons ice water
Place flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse briefly to combine, or combine by hand in a large bowl. Add coconut oil and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, making sure there are no large pieces of coconut oil remaining. Or, cut coconut oil in by hand with 2 table knives or grate coconut oil into the flour mixture using a box grater.
Add ice water a couple of tablespoons at a time, and continue to pulse, or mix by hand with a fork, just until dough begins to come together.
Turn dough out onto a cutting board or a smooth surface and form into a flattened disc. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least an hour or overnight. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface when ready to use.
