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).

also recipe to make homemade powdered sugar
Method:
Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

  • 2 c
    sifted powdered sugar (*i make my own splenda powdered sugar)
  • 1/4 lb
    butter, softened
  • 2 large
    eggs
  • 1/8 tsp
    salt (i use sea salt)
  • 1/4 tsp
    pure vanilla
  • 2
    (9 inch) pie crusts, baked
  • 1 c
    heavy cream

    sifted powdered sugar (*again you can make your own with splenda)

How to Make Furr's Cafeteria "Pineapple Millionaire Pie" (with adjustments for Diabetics to be able to eat some)

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream 2 cups powdered sugar and butter with electric mixer until fluffy (be SURE to do this step first).
  2. Add eggs, salt and vanilla.
    Beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Spread mixture evenly into baked pie crusts, then chill.
  4. Whip heavy cream until stiff.
    Blend in powdered sugar.
    Then fold in pineapple and pecans.
  5. Spread mixture on top of chilled filling; and chill thoroughly before serving.
  6. NOTE:
    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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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).
