This pie was fairly good. I made it for a family get together and my nieces and nephew really liked it. I guess the texture of the crushed pineapple threw me and my husband off. Was a pretty presentation though.

I made this pie some 25 years ago, I got it from the inside of Philadelphia Cream Cheese box. It is wonderful. I wanted to make it again and could not find my recipe, but now I have it. It is simple and delicious. I will make it a bunch now

I've been making this recipe for probably over 20 years. I originally found it in a magazine. The key to making it sort of look like a sunrise is to spread the pineapple on top in a ring around the outer edge of the pie and then fill in the center top of the pie with cherry filling. This pie has always been a huge hit with my family and it's super easy to make.
