Contest-Winning Glazed Pineapple Pie

 Contest-Winning Glazed Pineapple Pie
Just for fun, I enter my favorite pie recipes in area contests and fairs. This one is a guaranteed winner. It's so pretty with a golden crust and drizzles of glaze. Plus, the coconut adds a tropical accent to the tangy pineapple inside.
