Its missing the step where to add broth. Also is coconut oil liquid or soild
Adding the broth is written in step 6. And in step 9 it says to “cut in the coconut oil” meaning the coconut oil in its naturally soft, solid-ish state. It distributes nicely in the crust mixture.
Thank you, Vicky! I’ll try it ASAP 🙂
Any suggestion to make it dairy-free please? This recipe seems so tasteful…but I can’t tolerate dairy at all (casein&lactose forbidden).
Try coconut cream for heavy cream, ghee for the butter and coconut milk yogurt for the sour cream in the crust. That might do it!
