1 stick + 6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
Zest of 1 orange (optional)
2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
In a bowl, stir butter, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, and salt together until blended. Add egg and orange zest (optional) and mix until smooth. Add flour a cup at a time, then add milk, if needed, by teaspoons for a consistency of pie dough.
Form the dough in a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Then place dough in the center of either a spring form pan or pie tin. Using your fingers spread the dough out to cover the bottom and up the wall of the pan or tin (about 1”). Set aside the prepared pan.
1 cup dark chocolate chips
½ cup granulated sugar
½ Jar Handsome Carver’s Coconut Cashew Butter
4 egg whites
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 300°F.
In a bowl, coarsely mix together chocolate chips, sugar and Handsome Carver’s Coconut Cashew Butter. In a separate larger bowl, beat the egg whites and pinch of salt until stiff. Gently fold the first mixture into the eggs being careful not to undo the foam.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for at least 40 minutes, checking during baking until the dough and filling are a golden brown. Cool gradually to room temperature by leaving the pie in the oven with the door cracked, then remove from oven.
