Glazed Pineapple Pie (continued)

Editor's Note: To decorate top of pie with cutout as shown in photo, use a small pineapple-shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes from top pastry before placing pastry over filling. Place dough shapes on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden (watch closely). Cool slightly; arrange on top of baked pie after glazing.
