My dad's birthday was a few days ago, and I was thinking about him. His favorite pie was pineapple pie, which my mom made for him. I decided to make it a little differently and came up with this pie. Everyone liked it, but my husband said he preferred the original of my mother's.

How to Make Pineapple Cream Pie

Step-by-Step

  2. Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the cream and vanilla, and beat until medium to stiff peaks form. Fold in the cooled pineapple.
