pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple with juice
My BIL asked me to find a two-crust pineapple pie recipe for Thanksgiving 2002. I immediately turned on my computer and found this one at allrecipes.com. Imagine my suprise when not only my dear BIL but my dad and brother also chose this pie over their own personal favorites!
I have made this pie at least 2 dozen times in the past 18 months and everytime it tastes better! I had to make 4 of them in the month of April alone! Sometimes I go to the pantry and find that I only have tidbits or chunks. I just run them through my mini-chopper and voila! -- crushed pineapple!
My only suggestion would be to "wash" your uncooked crust with a beaten egg before you pour the still-warm filling into it in order to assure your crust will not be soggy. My BIL insists this recipe is perfect just the way it is!!!
I've made pineapple pie for years with my mother's recipe. I use unsweetened pineapple and a scant half cup of sugar and two TBS butter. I notice that most fruit pie recipes call for way too much sugar. It masks the taste of the fruit.
My new son-in-law wanted a pineapple pie..So, I tried this one, but added about 2 tsps of pineapple flavoring and used light brown sugar, instead of white in the filling...He raved about it, so I guess it was good. As for me, i'm not much on pineapple...But this recipe is a keeper...Thanks so much.
PHEW!!! Boy am I glad I found this recipe. I lost the recipe I had for this pie, and knew if it could be found, I would find it here. Thanks so much for posting this. I can sleep tonight now. After I bake of course. Oh...just about forgot. Everyone who likes pineapple pie, loves this recipe, and it is so easy. Just one little bit of advise. For really easy clean-up use a nonstick sauce pan and I use 2 cans of pineapple for a 9" deep pie. You may have a little bit left over, but I would rather have too much than have too little.
I used pineapple tidbits instead of crushed pineapple. I think it's better this way than it would be with crushed pineapple because you can actually bite into real pineapple pieces.
I've never had pineapple pie before and this recipe came together fabulously. I used a homemade double pie crust from the Betty Crocker cookbook and it added the perfect amount of crispiness to really give this pie the needed oomph. The pineapple flavor isn't overpowering like I thought it would be thanks to the lemon juice. Thank you...will make many more times in the future.
I only made the filling part of this for a coconut cake..and it was FABULOUS!!!
I am NOT a good baker and this pie turns out perfect every time! It is my husband's favorite dessert and he doesn't even like sweets. So easy to make.
