Ingredients For the Crust:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup ice water

Ingredients For the Pie:
3 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
2 teaspoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coconut
1 1/2 cups toasted macadamias
1 unbaked 9” pie shell, see above


<p> <strong>Directions For the Crust:</strong><br /> In a large bowl, cut cut into the flour until the mixture resembles small peas.  Stir the salt into the water until dissolved.  Pour water and salt into mixture and mix until it just comes together.  Pull the dough together and wrap in plastic wrap, then refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured counter, then press into buttered and floured deep dish pie pan. Don’t overwork the dough or it will become tough.<br /> <br /> <strong>Directions For the Pie:</strong><br /> Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, with rack in the center of the oven. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with sugar and corn syrup until well mixed. Add cooled melted butter, vanilla, and coconut, blend well.<br /> <br /> Pour lightly toasted nuts in center of the unbaked pie crust. Pour the liquid mixture over the nuts. Bake approximately 50 minutes until dark golden brown. The top will just start to inflate, slightly crack and have a little jiggle in the middle when done.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <span style="font-style: italic;">Visit our <a href="">Wine Store</a> to find a wine to pair with this recipe.</span></p> <p> <span style="font-style: italic;">Touring & Tasting adds new wine pairing recipes every week.
