    Missy Wombat's Note:

    This is a classic from the Friendly Islands. It makes a huge amount but I tend to double the recipe, use a roasting dish as the pan...and it all goes. Great for big families, pot luck dinners. A Tongan treasure.

      Ingredients for base is Wrong! Don't know what recipe other reviewers used but if they had used this one it would of turned out terrible. Do not use this recipe if you want to make a nice pineapple pie. I suggest google Samoan pineapple pie to get nicer authentic recipe.

      Amazing dessert! I made this for my weekly ladies gathering, and it was a hit! I drained my cans of pineapple rings, used half the amount of liquid in the filling, as well as extra 1 tsp custard powder, then followed Pikake21's suggestion of more butter ( 3 Tbsp) and 1/2 tsp vanilla once the filling was thickened and off the heat. By mistake, combined the crust ingredients wrong, but it was still easy to roll out btwn parchment and baked up fine. Next time, and there WILL be a next time, I would line the baking pan with foil, to facilitate getting the crust out of the baking pan when serving. Thank you Missy Wombat for posting!

      Very much the "Tongan" version of pineapple pie :) The meringue keeps the pineapple filling can add a bit more butter to the filling (as I did), and also a couple of dashes of vanilla. I prefer this crust, but some like it with an angel food cake-type base. Thank you for posting this lovely recipe, Missy Wombat!
