Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and have a 9-inch pie pan ready.

  3. Add cold coconut oil and pulse until the coconut oil is in small pieces.
  4. Add maple syrup, pulsing a few more times until combined.
  5. Finally, add 2 tablespoons of water, pulse, and continue to add water 1 tablespoon at a time until dough starts to pull together.
  6. Remove from food processor and form dough into a disc.
  7. On a well-floured surface, roll the dough out to a circle that is slightly larger than the pie pan.
  8. Transfer to the pie pan, crimp the edges, and pierce the bottom a few times with a fork.

  10. While pie crust bakes, whisk together the ingredients for the filling until well combined.
  11. Pour into the pie crust and return to the oven.
