Furr's Cafeteria "Pineapple Millionaire Pie" (with adjustments for Diabetics to be able to eat some)
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).
Beat until light and fluffy.
Blend in powdered sugar.
Then fold in pineapple and pecans.
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.
*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.
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?
