Ingredients

Pie Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cup 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

Filling:

  • 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)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • If coconut oil is not solid, put in fridge to solidify. Put cup of water with ice cubes in freezer.
  • In the food processor, add flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse 2-3 times.
  • Add solid coconut oil and pulse 5-6 times until slightly mixed
  • Add ice water 2 Tablespoons at a time until dough-like consistency (see image above, it took me between 8-10 Tablespoons)
  • Using a rubber spatula, pour dough on sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap dough into ball and place in fridge for 30 minutes to rest
  • Remove dough from fridge and place on lightly floured countertop. Knead dough 3-4 times max! Using a rolling pin, roll out into a 8-10 inch diameter circle.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet and put in fridge for 10 minuted to rest
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add all the ingredients for the filling and mix well. Set aside.
  • Remove dough from fridge and 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 dough and on top of pear filling.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes
  • Let cool for at least 10-15 minutes before cutting
