Pineapple Meringue Pie
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. + cooling
Made this for Easter with a berry pie. This pie was gone from the tin and happily eaten 10 minutes after the first person who took a slice raved about it. I did not alter the recipe in any way.
This pie was delicious. The only thing I might do next time is reduce the sugar a bit.
I love it just the way it is. Sometimes I do the meringue and sometimes whipped cream.
Lets start with this, I don't do many reviews, but I just put this pie in the oven and ran over here to type this! I bought a pineapple on sale at the super market, didn't know what to do whit it and saw this pie, coupled with the fact that I had a crust in the freezer I was sold.So the only changes I made were fresh pineapple, cut the sugar down by 1/4 cup per reviews (but I now feel I could have cut it in half), and doubled the lemon juice I used which was fresh too.THIS WAS AMAZING!!!!!! I was licking the remainder of the unused filling from the pan... So yes I have not eaten the pie yet, but I have no doubt it will be amazing. Just the filing alone was out of this world! If I change my mind I will let you know, but I really don't see that happening!

I had this recipe from an old taste of home I had and somehow lost it! So glad I found the recipe on here again. I've made this recipe a few times just like it says, but one time I added a little coconut to the filling and it was SOOOOO yummy. So if you like coconut, try it. It gives you even more of a tropical taste. YUM!
I had never heard of pineapple pie until a friend mentioned fond memories of one from childhood. So, I had to look up a recipe to surprise her. She loved this and said it was perfect. This was so super easy to make, too, that I made another one for myself. This is quite delicious, though I will say that I think it is a tad too sweet for me and next time will cut the sugar in half in the pineapple mixture. Otherwise it is perfect and a great cool summer dessert.
ps: for those who are confused with cornstarch and cournflour; here's the good news. This works just fine when u add cornflour just the way the recipe calls for cornstartch; mixed with sugar and pineapple before starting to cook. I love this one!
Made this for my SIL's B'day surprise... and definitely this is going to be my special dessert for every special occasion! Had so much fun making it; and tasting the pineapple filling every five minutes ;) everyone raved about it! Thank you thank you thank you soooooo much for this one!
