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).
2 csifted powdered sugar (*i make my own splenda powdered sugar)
1/4 lbbutter, softened
1/8 tspsalt (i use sea salt)
1/4 tsppure vanilla
2(9 inch) pie crusts, baked
1 cheavy cream
1/2 csifted powdered sugar (*again you can make your own with splenda)
1 can(s)crushed pineapple, drain well
1/2 cchopped pecans
How to Make Furr's Cafeteria "Pineapple Millionaire Pie" (with adjustments for Diabetics to be able to eat some)
- Cream 2 cups powdered sugar and butter with electric mixer until fluffy (be SURE to do this step first).
- Add eggs, salt and vanilla.
Beat until light and fluffy.
- Spread mixture evenly into baked pie crusts, then chill.
- Whip heavy cream until stiff.
Blend in powdered sugar.
Then fold in pineapple and pecans.
- Spread 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.
- 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).
