I found this recipe from Dole many years ago. It's delicious. If you use the glaze I added to this pie, it will remind you of the hand pies ( like Hostess made ) with the sugary glaze once the pie is cooled... Enjoy!!

How To Make pineapple pie

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degree F. If using a deep dish pie plate, you may want to double the filling...
  • 2
    Combine crushed pineapple, sugar, cornstarch and salt in saucepan. Cook, stirring, until thickened and clear. Stir in butter and lemon juice. Cool slightly.
  • 3
    Pour filling into unbaked 9-inch pastry shell. Top with other crust, vent and brush with cream. You can also add sugar, but I use a glaze as soon as it comes from the oven.
  • 4
    Bake at 400 degree F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  • 5
    Glaze: In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and water or cream. ( if too runny, add more sugar till consistency you desire.) Immediately after removing pie from the oven, brush the crust well with glaze. Completely cool. Enjoy!!!
