I love the creamy tropical flavour of this Pineapple Pie! If only I could transport myself to some warm beach with each bite. Now that would be something!
Since I’m stuck here in the snow, this pie will have to do. It uses a pre-made frozen crust to save on time. The bottom layer is sweet pineapple followed by a creamy, smooth cheesecake-like topping. It’s so good!
My friend, Becky, came over while I was making a few recipes and she said this dessert was her favourite of the bunch. I let her take the leftover pie home with her. Aren’t I nice friend?
Her boyfriend always texts me and asks if I’m cooking and can I bring him food. I usually cook for my blog about once a week and will try to bring leftovers over to their place if I can. It’s just Bridget and I home now so we can’t eat all the food ourselves.
I don’t often bake with pineapple, but that will have to change. Use canned crushed pineapple versus trying to cut up a whole pineapple. I like easy and the canned stuff is much simpler to deal with!
How to Make Pineapple Pie
It’s a very straightforward pie to make.
Get a large bowl and beat together cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and salt until smooth. Add in eggs, milk and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Set aside.
To make the second layer, stir together cornstarch, 1/2 cup sugar and crushed pineapple in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and let it boil for 2 minutes. Be sure to stir constantly.
Let the mixture cool a few minutes and then pour into your pie shell.
Pour the cream cheese mixture on top of the pineapple mixture. Bake for 10 minutes at 400F and then reduce the temperature to 325F and bake an additional 50 to 55 minutes, or until center is set. Let cool before cutting into slices.
