DIRECTIONS

  • Roll out and fit pastry into a 9-inch pie pan; sculpt the edge into an upstanding ridge; place in freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • In a bowl, combine the blueberries, pineapple, and pina colada concentrate in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cornstarch together in a small bowl, then stir the mixture into the fruit.
  • Stir in the rum, coconut extract, and salt; scrape the filling into the chilled pie shell; smooth the top with a spoon.
  • Place the pie on the center oven rack and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make coconut crumb topping: add flour, coconut, sugar, and salt to a food processor; pulse briefly to mix.
  • Scatter the butter over the top and pulse until the mixture starts to form gravelly crumbs.
  • Dump the crumbs into a large bowl and rub between your fingers to form large, buttery crumbs; refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Remove pie from oven and decrease temperature to 375°; carefully dump the crumbs in the center of the pie, spreading them evenly over the surface; tamp them down lightly.
  • Return pie to oven, rotate 180°; slide a large foil lined baking sheet onto the rack below to catch any spills.
  • Continue baking about 30 minutes until juices bubble thickly around the edge.
  • If top starts to get too brown, cover loosely with foil for the last 15 minutes.
  • Transfer pie to a wire rack; let cool for at least 1 hour before serving.
