Ingredients

Crust

Sauce

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  • Cream the coconut, agave, vanilla and egg, with an electric mixer.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to your creamed ingredients, a little at a time, with an electric mixer, until it is well incorporated.
  • Wrap dough in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour. Once chilled, roll out on wax paper, using flour where necessary so it doesn't stick to your rolling pin, or the counter.
  • Cut and wash 1 cup of strawberries. Put them in a small saucepan with 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Using the edge of a wooden spoon, slowly break the strawberries up until the start to break apart. After about 5 minutes, pour strawberries into a food processor and blend until smooth. If you still would like it a little thicker, at this point, return the pureed strawberries to the saucepan, and add 1/2 tablespoon of corn starch with a few drops of water *enough to turn the corn starch liquid. Add to the strawberries and stir over low heat until it begins to thicken.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Roll out dough, and using a pizza wheel, cut into 3X3 inch squares.
  • Pour strawberry sauce on one side, and fold over and pinch to keep the filling in.
  • Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
  • To keep these soft, store in a zip top bag or air proof container.
