Recipe

For the dough, start by combining flour, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Then add the butter substitute and mix using a fork until there are no more lumps or only small ones. Pour in water and oil and keep mixing until you can form a ball with the dough. Cover the bowl with a slightly damp towel and let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400F and start working on the filling. Simply add all the ingredients to a blender and mix until it becomes perfectly smooth. Leave aside and bake the dough for 10 to 15 minutes or until it is slightly golden (don’t forget to put pie weights or dry beans on the dough so it doesn’t break).

Allow the pie dough to cool down a bit and pour the filling into it. Carefully place walnuts on top so that it doesn’t sink in the filling. Place in the freezer until it becomes hard and serve immediately (store the leftovers back in the freezer).
