Furr's Cafeteria "Pineapple Millionaire Pie" (with adjustments for Diabetics to be able to eat some)
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 c
- sifted powdered sugar (*i make my own splenda powdered sugar)
- 1/4 lb
- butter, softened
- 2 large
- 1/8 tsp
- salt (i use sea salt)
- 1/4 tsp
- pure vanilla
- (9 inch) pie crusts, baked
- 1 c
- heavy cream
- 1/2 c
- sifted powdered sugar (*again you can make your own with splenda)
- 1 can(s)
- crushed pineapple, drain well
- 1/2 c
- chopped pecans
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).
