Cream Cheese-Pineapple Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
I've made this pie many times for friends, relatives, guests, church suppers and bazaars, and I'm always getting requests for the recipe. I've lived on farms all my life—we used to have a potato farm on Long Island, and now my son farms his own land and manages mine here in Delaware, growing soybeans and wheat. I belong to Homemakers and enjoy tailoring and crafts.
