This is how it is made in Barbados. The recipe is from totallybarbados.com. It is a great pie. It is sweet enough to be dessert, but with no sugar besides that in the crust and the fructose in the pineapple, it is good for those who don't like supersweet desserts. I used nonfat cream cheese for my own sake; please go ahead and use regular cream cheese if you prefer.
