Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil (solid, not liquid) virgin, unrefined so that it retains the coconut flavor, room temperature
  • 4-8 tbsp ice cold water

Filling

  • 4-1/2 cups pineapple fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  • 1/2 tsp rum extract

Instructions
 

Crust

  • Sift flour and salt together in medium bowl.
  • Add coconut oil and blend with a pastry cutter or fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in just enough water until dough holds together. Do not overwork.
  • Shape dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 20-30 minutes. Do not overchill as the coconut oil will harden making the dough difficult to roll out.

Filling

  • While the dough is chilling, add pineapple, lime juice and sugar to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Turn heat down to low-medium and simmer until warm and juicy, about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Spoon out about 1/2 cup of the juice from the pan into a bowl. Stir cornstarch into the juice until smooth.
  • Bring pot of pineapple back to a simmer and slowly pour in the cornstarch mixture. Stir mixture until thickened, about 2-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, stir in coconut and rum extract and set aside.

Assemble the pies

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Lay chilled pie dough on a floured surface and roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut 4-inch diameter circles. Fill the center of one circle with filling and moisten edges with water. Cover with a second circle of dough, and pinch to seal.
  • Transfer pie to a parchment-lined cookie sheet and brush with milk or egg to create a shiny and golden finish. Cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape while baking. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  • Bake at 350° for 25-35 minutes, turning baking sheet around once during baking. Pie bottoms should be a golden brown.
  • Remove to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
