Haupia Pie with Macadamia Crust

I had my first Haupia Pie on the North Shore of Oahu as a reward after being traumatized.

A few days before my North Shore experience there had been a large earthquake in Alaska that put the state of Hawaii on a tsunami alert.

Being from California I was used to the earthquakes, not being eaten alive by a giant wave.

Visions of the 2011 Japanese tsunami played in my head like a bad horror movie.

A few hours later all was fine and life went back to the normal Hawaiian style happiness.

Fast forward a few days to the afternoon on the beach of North Shore.

My cousins and I are happily soaking up the sun and beauty of Hawaii while having a cold drink when it hits. The dreaded “you are going to dye a drowning death today” siren.

Yes the tsunami siren went off and sent us into a state of panic.

My cousin, being the diligent wonderful mother that she is said, “My kids, I HAVE TO GET BACK TO MY KIDS.”

Her first thought was her precious babies in school.

My first thought was gathering every precious item we had brought to the beach and RUNNING FOR MY LIFE.

So what do I do?

I grab my beer and I RUN.

Yep, that is right.

Forget my purse and my camera, I had my beer and I was going to save my life.

That is until we realized that those around us were enjoying the show we were putting on for free.

They were testing the tsunami sirens…Yep, it is amazing what fear and panic can do to a person.

After our horrific experience we decided to drown our sorrows in a piece of Haupia Pie and let me tell you, it made everything better.

Everything stood still for me that afternoon with the first bite of the heavenly coconutty dreaminess.

So you can imagine my delight when my Cousin Niki (who was a chef in the Coast Guard) said she would make this Haupia Pie with Macadamia Crust for the blog.

If you make no other dessert this Holiday season, your Holidays will be complete because of this pie.


  • For the Crust-
  • 1 ¼ - 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup butter *cold & cubed
  • ½ cup macadamia pieces
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3-5 tbsp ice water
  • For the Filling-
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp. coconut extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or chucks of choice
  • For the Slurry-
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • For the Topping-
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1/4-1/2 cup coconut shavings *toasted


  1. In food processor, pulse macadamia nuts until fine bits. Be careful not to over process nuts or you will have macadamia nut butter. Yummy, but not what we want. Remove from food processor. Set aside.
  2. In food processor, pulse cold cubed butter and flour. Add water one tablespoon at a time to dough. Add macadamias. Dough should be crumbly but able to pinch together. Pour onto plastic wrap. Form a disk. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes to 1 hour. Remove. Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Roll dough out on a floured surface. Avoid dough becoming too warm by overworking with hands. Carefully press dough into 8" pie dish. Place crust into oven and bake until golden brown-approximately 15 mins at 350℉.
  3. Set aside to cool completely.
  4. While the crust is cooling, create a slurry by dissolving cornstarch into water. Set aside.
  5. In a saucepan whisk together the coconut cream, milk, and sugar. Warm over medium heat until mixture begins to simmer and sugar is dissolved.
  6. Lower the heat and add extract. Add slurry to coconut mixture. Continue cooking on low just long enough for filling to thicken. Pour half the coconut mixture into a bowl and immediately add chocolate to remaining mixture in saucepan. Mix to melt chocolate into filling.
  7. Evenly pour chocolate filling into the cooled macadamia crust. Pour coconut mixture on top of chocolate and with an offset spatula smooth evenly over the chocolate layer.
  8. Cool the pie on counter top until room temperature. Place into the refrigerator.
  9. Whip heavy cream with sugar until stiff peaks form.
  10. lay coconut flat on a cookie sheet & toast in a 350℉ oven for 5-7 mins making sure to not burn. Let cool.
  11. When pie is cooled completely, top with whipped cream, toasted coconut, chopped macadamias, chopped chocolate, etc.
