Moms' Favorite Pineapple Pie

Shelley Young


My Mom, Cheryl, loves pineapple pie. We were wandering through an antiques store several years ago and I spotted a cookbook section. As I browsed, I found a pineapple pie recipe! Well, I could not afford the cookbook and wanted it to be a surprise for my Momma. So I memorized the ingredients as best I could and made her a pie. This is my version and I have made my own pie crust and used store bought as well. Both work fine. I hope you enjoy this easy, unique pie.

pinch tips: How to Make a Pie Shell & Lattice Top





15 Min


35 Min


1 c
granulated sugar
1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
20 ounce can(s)
crushed pineapple, drained with liquid reserved
1 Tbsp
melted butter
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
powdered sugar and vanilla extract for glaze
pie crust for top and bottom layers

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients except pineapple juice, powdered sugar, & vanilla. Pour into prepared bottom crust. Top with remaining (top) crust. Cut 4 small slits to vent and bake at 400 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.
When cool, mix powdered sugar, pineapple juice, and vanilla extract to form a glaze. Drizzle a little over each serving and serve.
*If this is your first time working with powdered sugar, please know that a little liquid goes a long way. You should also only add the vanilla extract after the juice or you'll get little dark lumps. I did not give measurements for this because everyone likes different consistencies of glaze and it really doesn't matter. I've even served it without glaze and it's wonderful. ENJOY!!
