  • cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ˝ cup chilled, unsalted butter
  • 2 cup chilled shortening
  • ˝ cup cold water

  • 3 cups peeled & grated coconut

  • How To Cook:
    1. Combine flour and salt. Cut in butter and shortening until mixture is crumbly.

    2. Sprinkle cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, over mixture, stirring lightly after each addition until pastry is just moist enough to hold together.

    9. Lay half the strips across the filling about 1 inch apart.

    10. Lay the remaining strips crosswise to form a lattice pattern.
