Method

For the Crust:

  1. Add all of the base ingredients to a food processor and pulse until ground and crumbly mixture forms. It should stick together easily, but be mindful not to over-process as the mixture will become too smooth.

  2. Sprinkle a layer of coconut shreds onto the bottom of your pie pan or mini tart pans.
  3. When your base mixture is ready, spread it out evenly, pushing some up the sides to make the pie edge, and then pressing it firmly into place all over the pan.
  4. Set the base in the fridge to harden while you make the rest of the pie.

For the Filling:

  1. Add all of the ingredients to the food processor and process until smooth and creamy, scraping often. It should be thick, with no lumps in it. You can add additional sweetener and spices if you prefer. 
  2. When the filling is finished, spread it on top the base, smooth it out.

For the Cream: 

  1. Add all of the ingredients to the food processor and process until smooth and creamy, scraping often. This requires a bit of pulsing the mixture, then giving it a stir to mix everything together. It should be thick, with no lumps in it. You may want to add more liquid as well. You can add additional sweetener if you prefer.
  2. How to Enjoy the Pie:

Leave in the fridge until ready to serve.

Just before serving, garnish with cinnamon.

Store leftovers (if there are any) covered in the fridge.
