Contest-Winning Glazed Pineapple Pie Recipe

Contest-Winning Glazed Pineapple Pie Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon rum or vanilla extract


  • 1. Drain pineapple, reserving 2 tablespoons juice (discard remaining juice or refrigerate for another use); set pineapple aside. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim pastry even with edge of plate. Sprinkle with coconut.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, salt, lemon juice, butter and pineapple. Spread over coconut. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut sits in pastry. Add decorative cutouts if desired.
  • 3. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
  • 4. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, extract and enough of the reserved pineapple juice to achieve glaze consistency. Drizzle over warm pie. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 6-8 servings.
