Vegan Pie Crust

Vegan Pie Crust

Super simple and yummy!  Makes one piecrust.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp All Purpose flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (solid!)
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 3–4 Tbsp Ice Water

Directions:

  1. You can use a bowl and wooden spoon or pulse in a food processor to combine flour, sugar and salt.
  2. Add the coconut oil(must be solid, not melted) and stir, or pulse, until the mixture is crumbly.
  3. Add 3 Tbsp ice water and stir (kneading also) or pulse to combine. It should look like dough now and if you break off a piece and roll it in your hands it should easily roll into a ball. If it doesn’t then add the remaining Tbsp of ice water.
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured surface.
  5. Roll the dough into a big round ball.
  6. Using a rolling pinroll it out from side to side into a giant round that can fit over your pie dish.
  7. Carefully lift it up and place it over your pie dish, tucking it in along the sides of the pie dish to fit properly.
  8. Take a scissors and trim off any excess dough.
  9. Place your pie crust into the fridge while you prepare your pie filling.
  10. If you need to pre-cook your pie crust before adding your pie filling (only if the recipe specifies this), then you can do so by baking in the oven at 450°F (230°C) for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
