1) To make pineapple pie, I add an 8 oz can crushed pineapple and stir well. Pour into baked 9 in pie shell. Chill and top with whipped cream.
2) For chocolate pies, I add 2 - 3 tablespoons of Hershey's Cocoa Natural Unsweetened (can use other dry cocoa). This I add with the sugar at beginning.
3) For coconut pies I add a small can of coconut after cooking before pouring into the baked pie shell.
