also recipe to make homemade powdered sugar
Straw's' StoryI 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).
sifted powdered sugar (*i make my own splenda powdered sugar)
Find more recipes at goboldwithbutter.com
salt (i use sea salt)
(9 inch) pie crusts, baked
sifted powdered sugar (*again you can make your own with splenda)
crushed pineapple, drain well
1Cream 2 cups powdered sugar and butter with electric mixer until fluffy (be SURE to do this step first).
2Add eggs, salt and vanilla.
Beat until light and fluffy.
3Spread mixture evenly into baked pie crusts, then chill.
4Whip heavy cream until stiff.
Blend in powdered sugar.
Then fold in pineapple and pecans.
5Spread mixture on top of chilled filling; and chill thoroughly before serving.
This pie is sweet and not for diabetics.
But if you make your own powdered sugar by grinding Splenda into a powder, you can eat some too.
7TIP 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.
8Frosting 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).

This looks delicious ! I used to work in a cafeteria maybe 30 yrs ago. We made everything from scratch wonderful meals ! Today when I look at the school menus I want to cry !

This is a wonderful, light pie and very tasty!!! School menus have no nutritional value whatsoever, do they Carol?
