Step 2. To make the pie crust, first pulse the flour and sugar in a food processor (I highly recommend this one) to mix, then add the chilled, diced butter and coconut oil. Keep pulsing until the butter bits break down to a smaller size. This will assure crust flakiness.

Step 3. Add ice water and keep the processor running until the dough forms into a ball.
