Pie Crust:

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cane sugar (plus extra for top of crust before baking - optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil solid
  • 8 Tablespoons ice water


  • 3 pears sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice (about 1/4 lemon squeezed)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If coconut oil is not solid, put in the fridge to solidify. Put a cup of water with ice cubes in the freezer.
  • In the food processor, add flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse 2-3 times.
  • Add solid coconut oil and pulse until there are pea-sized pieces of coconut oil.
  • Add ice water 1 Tablespoons at a time until dough-like consistency (it took me about 5 Tablespoons).
  • Using a rubber spatula, pour the dough on a sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap the dough into ball and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  • Remove dough from fridge and place on a lightly floured countertop. Knead the dough a few times. Using a rolling pin, roll out into 1/8" thick, 8-10" diameter circle. Transfer to a greased baking sheet.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add all the ingredients for the filling and mix well.
  • Place pear slices in a circular pattern. Make sure to tightly pack the pears in because they shrink a bit when baking. Leave a 1/2-3/4 inch border around the pie dough.
  • Gently fold edges of pie dough towards the center around all the sides. Sprinkle cane sugar on top of crust and on top of pear filling.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes.
  • Let cool for at least 10-15 minutes before cutting. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
