Well since we have been posting desserts, let me post one of my all time favorites....my mother's Pineapple Cream Pie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pkg   9-inch Baked Pie Crust (Pillsbury Frozen Pie Crust or Betty Crocker) or make your own.
  • 2 Cans 20oz. Crushed Pineapple w/heavy syrup, drained
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tsp. salt
  • 5 Tbls corn starch
  • 2 Tbls butter
  • 1 Tsp. vanilla

Directions:

  • Prepare pie crust according to directions & set aside, allow to cool.
  • Over medium heat combine the 2 egg yolks, milk, sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Stir constantly and bring to boil. Mixture will thicken rapidly. When thickened, remove from heat.
  • Stir in butter, drained crushed pineapple and vanilla.
  • Pour into cooled pie crust and let pie cool.
  • Refrigerate until firm.

That's all there is to it. So simple.
