1/2 cup cold butter

In a cold bowl, whip the cream with the icing sugar and salt using a hand mixer until fluffy. Spread over the top of the cooled pie.  

Toast the 1 cup unsweetened coconut in a frying pan on medium  heat until golden brown. Sprinkle over the pie before serving.


Preheat oven to 350ºF. 

Cut the butter into small cubes. Mix the flour, butter, and sea salt in  a bowl by hand or using a food processor. Add the water and contin ue to mix just until the dough shapes into a ball.  

Place parchment paper on the counter and sprinkle with additional  flour. Cut the dough in half. Roll out half on the parchment paper.  Place in a pie dish.

Nada’s Tips & Tricks:  This pie was delicious…we made real whipped cream but bought the pie crust…get the deep dish one if buying the crust.  The recipe makes a lot of filling and the regular crust came close to overflowing.
