The combination of pineapple and strawberry add a nice pleasing flavor to this pie. It is an attractive dish to serve. The directions are wonderful and easy to follow. For the pineapple, I used an 8 ounce can of crushed pineapple which was drained well. I used my Microwave Graham Cracker Crust #96877 for the crust. Thanks andypandy for posting!
