I love this recipe because it is light but yet very tasteful. I received this from a friend of mine at work.

- extra Cool Whip
- maraschino cherry (optional)
- Mix crushed pineapple with the juice (do not drain), vanilla instant pudding, and sour cream.
- Blend well.
- Pour into pie crust.
- Top with extra creamy cool whip.
- Garnish with maraschino cherries.
- Chill 2 hours.
After dinner at a local restaurant, I had our friends over for coffee, tea and your great Pineapple Pie. This was so light and refreshing. A perfect ending to a lovely evening with friends. Everyone loved it and I passed the recipe along to them. Thanks for sharing this recipe. :-)
I did make some changes. I mis-read recipe and didn't realize that I needed two boxes of pudding. I did use Vanilla Pudding Mix (scaled to 1 serving) and also a box of instant tapioca pudding (that I pureed dry, to get the chunks out). I realized that it was a mistake to use the tapioca without boiling, so I carefully cooked the mixture with sour cream for a few minutes to just about boiling temp and the rice dissolved and the mixture didn't curdle. I was surprised when my pie set up beautifully and it was a superb taste and texture. The sour cream gives it a cheesecake texture. Despite MY mistakes I loved the pie and so did my guests (father in law). Thanks Melanie! Roxygirl
