Super easy and delicious! It was getting rave reviews before I had even finished serving it. Since it's a family recipe, I understand how sometimes the little details don't get written down. This is what I learned with this pie: It is only enough filling for an 8-inch pie dish (I made a homemade crust in a deep-dish pie plate), although it does puff up and rise enough to sort of hide the extra crust on my 9.5-inch dish. I didn't know if the pineapple should be drained or not, and if it was canned or fresh. I was using fresh pineapple, so I pulsed it in the Ninja blender to crush it, and then drained all but the last 1/4 cup. I felt that the drained pineapple made a nice custard-like filling, and the undrained pineapple added a bit of texture to the filling. The top of the pie browned and crisped up automatically, and created a really light crunch that complimented the filling. Thanks for sharing, mailbelle!

I made this for my Mother-In-Laws b-day party and the crows went wild. There was not a crumb left. Thanks so much for sharing this great pie. I made just as directed, didnt change a thing. I added it to my reciepe box.

This was a really good pie, but it was very very sweet. I'm sure many of you out there love that sweet southern taste, but it was a little much for me. The pineapple was a great flavor and the texture is great! A creamy custard with a little crunch from the pineapple. My crust didn't turn out very well, so just ignore that in the picture :) Thanks for posting the Mama Cash recipes Mailbelle!
