This was truely Magic. So quick and easy to prepare with just several on hand ingredients. I was amazed at how it makes its own crust. I followed the amount of ingredients and instructions without any alterations, using the crushed pineapple. I found two things I would do differently the next time. I would use two cups of crushed pineapple instead of one to enhance the pineapple flavor. With only one cup it had the wonderful light fluffy taste of an egg custard and not quite enough pineapple taste. I also found that after the 40 minute cooking time was up, the middle of the pie was no where near set but the edges were getting very brown. I covered the edges with aluminum foil and had to bake for another 40 minutes before it set. I will have to check my oven as the temperature may be off. It was wonderful, light, tasty and super easy and I will add it to my favorites.
This may be the easiest pie I have ever made! I used shredded coconut for an extremely tasty coconut pie! No crust to make because this recipe does indeed develop it's own crust as it bakes. My pie was ready in exactly 37 minutes and I garnished with toasted coconut. Lee Lee, I love you and miss you so much! Your legacy lives on in all the incredible recipes you passed down to me ~ Thank you for being my Mom : )
Needs sugar. I added 1/2 cup. You can also cut the butter back a bit. It took about an hour to bake.
