You can purchase two pre-made pie shells or make your own pie crust using your favourite recipe. Once the pie has completely cooled to room temperature, you will want to store it in the refrigerator.
When it comes to serving it, I recommend vanilla ice cream, vanilla yoghurt or some whipped topping. If desired, you can place a few fresh cherries on top of your chosen topping right before serving.
Pineapple Pie Recipe
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons quick cooking tapioca
- 1/4 teaspoon table salt
- 4 cups fresh pineapple, chopped into pieces
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 unbaked pastry shells
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
In a small mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar, tapioca and table salt. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped pineapple pieces and lemon juice. Gently stir the sugar mixture into the pineapple mixture to combine all ingredients together. Let this mixture stand at room temperature for approximately 15 minutes.
Pour mixture into an unbaked pastry shell and dot the top with butter or margarine. Use the second pastry shell to make a top crust, seal the edges with a tad of water if necessary.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 minutes or until done. Cool pie to room temperature and then refrigerate.
