Servings: 1 – 10 X 15 Inch Pie



  • 3 ⅔ cups All-purpose flour
  • cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Table salt


  • 1 Stick cold unsalted butter (8 Tbsp.), cubed
  • ¾ cup Coconut oil
  • 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


Add a different flavor and texture to your pie crust when you use coconut oil in place of shortening. Use this dough with nearly any slab pie.
