Vanilla-Coconut Crust
  • 50 Vanilla Wafers (185 grams)
  • ¾ cup (45 grams) sweetened flaked coconut
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons (84 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper, letting excess extend over sides of pan.
  2. In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse together vanilla wafers, coconut, and salt until fine crumbs remain. Add melted butter, and pulse to combine. Press mixture into bottom and halfway up sides of prepared pan.
  3. Bake until set, about 8 minutes. Let cool completely. Using excess parchment as handles, gently remove crust.
We used a square baking dish, but this recipe will also work in a standard round deep-dish pie plate.
