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
This pie is vary good.My DD licked the mixing bowl clean!
Excellent, Easy, and Very Tasty!! It was great...my hubbie, who isn't a sweet eater loved it. Thanks you Melanie for this great recipe.
I found this recipe for my husband and he loved it. I made it for him once and now he's addicted. The best part it was so easy to make. I topped the pie with pineapple rings instead of the cherry.
Made this for the residents at the assisted living facility for the elderly for whom I cook part-time. They absolutely loved it. Most asked question-when can we have it again? I whipped this up when I got into work in the morning and we had it for dessert at dinner(noon). Really great! Everything I look for in a dessert for work-taste,originality,ease of preparation,and made with ordinary on-hand ingredients! Thanx, Melanie!
A great summer pie and very refreshing not to mention very easy.
I didn't know which pudding mix to use. None of them are 6 ounces. Even the sugared mixes aren't 6 oz. I thought the pie was heavy, tasty but I wouldn't make it again using this recipe. I will make the pudding and mix the filling with the prepared pudding, and probably add a little cool whip to lighten it up a bit. The recipe isn't very clear an the pudding mix.
This is a *great* recipe! My mother-in-law introduced us to it a week ago and we are hooked. It's not cloying sweet like so many fruity desserts can be. It is creamy and delicious. Love. This.
I only had one box of vanilla pudding so I substituted a box of pistachio pudding for the other box and it turned out great...gave the pie a nice spring time green color. I mixed half a container of Cool Whip into the pie mixture and spread the other half on top of the pie before chilling. This pie is delicious...just what I wanted....it took less than ten min to put together. This one is a keeper for sure! Thanks!
