Furr's Cafeteria "Pineapple Millionaire Pie" (with adjustments for Diabetics to be able to eat some)

Cin Straw's Kitchen Recipe

By Cin Straw's Kitchen NanatomyGrands

I am honoring Cafeteria's today..they fed us all well for many years. Now most alllll are gone. I miss them.

Here is another pie recipe from the cafeteria recipes..from Furr's this time.

I HAVE REVAMPED THIS RECIPE SO THAT "THOSE OF US WITH DIABETES" CAN ALSO HAVE SOME.

I ADDED A RECIPE TO MAKE 'HOMEMADE POWDERED SUGAR' FOR US WHO HAVE DIABETES CAN USE IT TO DUST ON DESSERTS OR MAKE FROSTINGS (there is also a frosting recipe at the bottom).

But if you make your own powdered sugar by grinding Splenda into a powder, you can eat some too.

TIP For Diabetics:
*To make your homemade powdered sugar from Splenda...take 1 cup Splenda and 2 tablespoons cornstarch, using a clean coffee grinder (or a blender) place both ingredients in the cup, placeing the lid on and pulse into a powder form.

This can be used for dusting cakes, cupcakes...etc.
You can also make a frosting with it.

Frosting made with Homemade Powdered Sugar:
8 ounces low-fat cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup light butter
Beat 8 oz of cream cheese with the butter.
Mix in vanilla and 1/2 cup of the home made powdered sugar (taste it as you go).
