This pie's light, creamy filling and refreshing pineapple flavor could very well make this old favorite a new classic in your recipe box.—Carolyn Redmon, Sanger, Texas


  • 1-1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers (about 45 wafers)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package (3 ounces) lemon gelatin
  • 1-1/2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1-3/4 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped


  1. Combine the wafer crumbs, sugar and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the gelatin, pineapple juice and egg. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture is slightly thickened and a thermometer reads 160° (do not boil), about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; transfer to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Fold whipped cream into filling. Spread evenly into crust. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.
