How to Make Chocolaty Pudding Pie With Blind Baked Coconut Oil Crust
- FOR THE PIE CRUST:
- I used my food processor to make this pie crust and it came out great!
- Preheat your oven to 400'F.
- Add the flour to your food processor and run it for a minute to sift the flour.
- Add the solidified coconut oil and cold margarine and pulse until you get a crumbly mixture.
- Slowly add the cold water.
- Stop the food processor and feel the dough. If it isn't sticky but holds together well then remove it from the food processor and form it into a disc. Roll it out and put into your pie tin.
- Then, put the round piece of parchment paper you cut out onto the unbaked pie crust. Center it and make sure you evenly distribute the beans on top of the parchment paper.
- Bake for 8 minutes. Then take the pie out of the oven and remove the beans and parchment. Return to the oven and bake for another 4-5 minutes or until golden. Cool on a rack.
- FOR THE PIE FILLING:
- Put both the packages of chocolate pudding/pie filling in a medium sauce pan. Add the arrowroot flour and shredded chocolate into the pot with the pudding pie mix and give it a good whisk to make sure it's well mixed. Turn on the stove and slowly add the milk to the mixture. Mix this well and you should have a thick yummy chocolaty mixture.
- Continually stir the pudding/pie mix or it will stick to the bottom of the pot. When it comes to a boil stir and continue cooking for another minute.
- Remove from the heat. Cool for 5 minutes and stir at least two more times in that 5 minute period.
- Add to your cooled pie crust. If you want put a piece of plastic wrap over the surface of the filling. This will prevent a skin from forming on top of the pie. Cool in the fridge for 3-4 hours, no less. You can also shred chocolate on top of the pie like I did.
- Add your favorite whipped topping on the pie, or on each individual piece. I like Tru Whip and my hubby likes Coconut Whipped Cream on his.
