Coconut Oil Pie Crust
- 3 ⅔ cups All-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup Sugar
- 1 tsp. Table salt
- 1 Stick cold unsalted butter (8 Tbsp.), cubed
- ¾ cup Coconut oil
- ⅓ cup Buttermilk
- ¾ cup Ice water
- Ground unsweetened raw coconut
- Pulse flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor to combine.
- Add butter and coconut oil; pulse until pea-sized. Pour in buttermilk; pulse to incorporate. Add water in small amounts, pulsing after each addition to incorporate until dough holds together.
- Turn dough out and knead just to incorporate dry portions. Divide dough into two portions (one larger, weighing 22–25 oz.).
- Wrap each dough in plastic wrap and flatten into a rectangle; chill 30 minutes.
- For easy rolling, let dough sit at room temperature a few minutes so the coconut oil softens slightly.
- Sprinkle ground coconut onto a 10 x 15 x 1-inch jelly roll pan.
- Roll larger dough into a 13 x 18-inch rectangle with a rolling pin on a surface sprinkled with flour and ground coconut. Turn dough often to avoid sticking, adding ground coconut as needed.
- Transfer dough to prepared pan. Trim overhang to 1-inch; fold edge under. Cut "tabs" at 1-inch intervals in dough edge. Freeze dough until firm, 15 minutes
