1. Preheat oven to 400°F/205°C. 2. Add flour and salt to a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined. 3. Scoop coconut oil into the bowl. 4. Using a pastry blender or a fork, blend until combined. Do not over-mix.

5. Pour in 5 tablespoons of ice water and stir thoroughly with a wooden spoon. 6. Knead the dough to form into a ball. 7. Transfer the dough to a well-floured piece of parchment paper and flatten it out with your hands.

8. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut dough into the number of pieces required and set aside extra piece(s). (If you are making a standard 9″ pie then divide the dough into two pieces, one slightly larger than the other to line the pie pan, the other for the top.)

9. Sprinkle flour on top of the dough. 10. Roll dough into a flat circle about 1/8 inch thick. (To prevent sticking, sprinkle more flour over the dough as needed.)

11. Line pie pan and fill with the desired filling. 12. Repeat step 10 for the remaining piece(s) and place it on top of the pie.

13. Bake depending on filling.
