First of all, let’s prepare your crust. Preheat the oven at about 176 degrees. Get your 9-inch pie pan and apply ghee or butter all over it. Now take a bowl for mixing up your crust’s ingredients. Keep on mixing until the fine supple dough is formed. Transfer the dough into the pan while press it evenly to spread this all over the pan. Now prick this whole dough with the help of a fork as it restrains the dough from bubbling up while baking. Your dough is all set to bake now. Set your dough to bake for about 10-12 min. Let it cool down for about 15-20 min after baking then starts preparing the filling.
Now it’s a food processor’s turn! Add all ingredients for filling inside your food processor and start blending until it gets velvety. By the time your crust will get normal. Now it’s time to pour all the fillings on the crust and evenly level it flat with the help of a spatula. Refrigerate the pie for the next two hour and it’s ready to be served! You can also add toppings like your favorite berries, coconut flakes, and chocolate chunks, depending upon your preference.
