Pineapple Sour Cream Pie Recipe

Pineapple Sour Cream Pie Recipe

A luscious alternative to lemon meringue pie, this dessert is one of our favorites. The meringue is so creamy and the pineapple filling so refreshing that your family will request it again and again. —P. Lauren Fay-Neri, Syracuse, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 6 tablespoons sugar


  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar and flour. Stir in pineapple and sour cream until combined. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
  • 2. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Pour into pastry shell.
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spread evenly over hot filling, sealing edges to crust.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until meringue is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

"This pis is so easy - and so so good, I've made three this week. Try stirring in 1 cup shredded coconut to the mixture just before filling the pie crust - you won't regret it!"
