I have a passion for fresh berries. I also have a passion for the amazing macadamia/coconut pie crust that Ted's Bakery in Oahu, Hawaii is famous for! So, I tried to copy that crust the best I could and fill it with a mix of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. It turned out lovely! Enjoy!

1 tsp
sugar
3 Tbsp
coconut milk or coconut flavored almond milk

corn starch
2 Tbsp

½ c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Toast coconut for 3-5 minutes at 400 degrees…but keep your eye on it! It goes fast and you might burn it! If your macadamia nuts are whole, put them into a food processor and pulse till they are finely chopped.
2
Place flour, butter, nuts, teaspoon of sugar and coconut into a food processor and mix well. Add coconut milk or coconut flavored almond milk and process until the dough balls up.
3
Place ball of dough on floured surface and flatten. Cut into 8 equal wedges. Put each wedge of dough in an individual ramekin or oven proof dessert bowl. Flatten crust out to fill the bottom and a little of the sides of the bowl.
4
Bake crusts at 425 degrees for 8 minutes. Allow to cool completely before filling.
5
In a saucepan, whisk 1 cup of sugar, cornstarch. and gelatin powder together. Add water. Bring to boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
6
When crusts are completely cooled, fill with a mixture of fresh berries. Pour a little less than ¼ cup of the gelatin sauce onto each berry mound. Top with whipped cream.
