Labor day is coming up and it's probably going to be your last chance for a big summer get-together. I personally feel you can't have a party in the summer with out pie. I tried this recipe a little while back. It's not your average pie. It's filled with gooey pineapple and coconut. It was delicious, but really, can you go wrong when you try a recipe out of a Taste of Home award winning recipes cook book?
Glazed Pineapple Pie
- 2 uncooked pie crusts
- 1 can (20 ounces) Crushed Pineapple
- 3/4 cup flaked coconut
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon rum or vanilla extract
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, salt, lemon juice, butter and pineapple. Spread over coconut. Roll out remaining crust to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top crust. Add decorative cutouts if desired.
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.
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.
