Instructions

Make the crust:

  • Place the flour, sugar,and salt in a bowl and cut in the coconut oil with a fork, until it is evenly dispersed through the flour in small pieces
  • Add the water, a little at a time, mixing with the fork until the dough comes together in a bowl.
  • Wrap tightly in cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Make the filling:

  • Blitz the cashews in a blender with the water and cornstarch
  • In a bowl mix well the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cashew paste, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract.

Assemble and bake the pie:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the pastry crust until you have a round that's slightly larger than your pie plate.
  • Transfer the crust to the pie plate and crimp the edges with your fingers or with a fork.
  • Pour in the filling.
  • Place the pie in the center rack of the oven and bake 10 minutes.
  • Lower the heat to 350 degrees and continue baking for 50-60 minutes or until the filling's set. A knife inserted into the center should come out clean.
  • Cool the pie thoroughly on a rack. Chill the pie if possible, before eating-- it tastes best that way and is easier to cut.
