How to Make Kay's Refrigerator Pineapple Pies
- In one large bowl, mix together drained pineapple, and sweetened condensed milk....mix well
- add the juice of one lemon (as much as you can squeeze out of it!) and about 9 or 10 oz. of the large tub of cool whip, and mix well again...it should thicken while you're mixing (save rest for top of pies)...divide and pour into both pie shells.
- divide rest of cool whip to spread on top....use the grapes and mandarin oranges (drained) to make a nice decoration around the pie in wheel fashion ...alternating orange slices and whole grapes.....Put a glob of strawberry (or whatever jam or jelly that you like) in the center of each pie ....cover with the top that comes with the pies and refrigerate for at least an hour or so to make sure it sets!......that's it!.....It's so easy and so yummy!...looks nice, too! don't you feel guilty?.
........I have sometimes sprinkled ground nuts, sprinkles, etc, over the pies as well....and sometimes have died the cool whip green for St. Patricks day, and decorated with green sprinkles....you can use your imagination for decorating!....have fun, and enjoy the compliments on your pies!.....(smile!)
