    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This pie is a "cooked" filling like your granny used to make. It's fully of fat, sugar, calories and totally something that would make dear Mr. Adkins and his diet and the folks at Weight Watchers have a heart attack and drop dead. However, my dietitian and I have tried to make it low-sugar/low-carb.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Crust

    • 20 crisp oatmeal cookies (You can find sugar-free ones or make your own.)
    • 1/4 cup reduced fat margarine, melted

    Filling

    Topping

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350 degrees. Generously coat a 9 inch pie plate with spray.
    2. 2
      Process the cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs. Add margarine and process until crumbs are moist. Press into the pie plate. Bake 12 minutes until toasted around the edges and cool on a wire rack.
    3. 3
      Mix Splenda and cornstarch in a 2-qt. saucepan. Add enough pineapple juice to the coconut milk to make 2 1/2 cups. Stir into the sugar mixture, then bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, but not briskly. Boil one minute. Remove from heat.
    4. 4
      Whisk yolks to mix; gradually whisk in about half the hot mixture; return to saucepan. Stir over low heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in margarine till melted. Stir in pineapple and coconut. Pour into crust. Cover surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming and refrigerate 3 hours.
    5. 5
      Before serving: beat the cream and sugar to stiff peaks if using cream. Spread over pie and garnish with pineapple chunks, shredded coconut, or mint sprigs.

      Thought I'd try something really different for hubby's birthday cake. He said it was terrific, but a little too rich-tasting. I had added a tsp of vanilla.. perhaps next time I'll add coconut extract instead, as the pineapple taste pretty much overpowered the pie. It set up beautifully in about 3 hrs. Also put it in a regular pie crust rather than the cookie crust. It totally filled the pie shell, which is another reason for the higher rating. Only missed one star because, for my tastes, it was too rich. Thanks for sharing!
