Such an easy, yet yummy pie. I make my own crust, but if pressed for time, by all means use a store bought.

Enjoy!

+ 1 - 7 ounce can, crushed pineapple - well drained ( saving 2 tablespoons of juice
2/3 c
sugar
1 - 8 oz
cream cheese, softened
1 - 8 oz

CRUST - YOU CAN USE A STORE BOUGHT CRUST, I JUST PREFER TO MAKE MY OWN

1 1/2 c
graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c
sugar
1/3 c
melted butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

In a small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs & sugar. Stir in melted butter, and blend until all crumbs are moistened.
2
Place in 9 inch pie crust. I then use a metal measuring cup to press evenly into bottom pf place and up the sides. This works best for me. Use a spoon or your fingers if you prefer.

Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes or until turning golden on edges. Cool on rack.

For pie:

In a large mixing bowl, cream sugar, cream cheese and the 2 tablespoons of juice, until well blended.

Fold in the well drained pineapple.

Next, fold in the whipped cream until well blended.
6
Spoon evenly into the cooled crust.

Chill for 4 - 6 hours, before serving.
