I like pie..no let me change that.. I love pie…and I mean all kinds of pies..recently.. well a few hours ago my niece Amber posted that she was waiting for this Pineapple- Coconut Pie to cool..so she could try a piece..well I have been deathly ill that last six days.. and my body is filled with STERIODS…which have “KICKED” in..and once I saw the pictures of this pie and she posted the recipe… I was in the kitchen making it!! Yep..within 2 1/2 hours of her post..my Pineapple- Coconut Pie is on the kitchen counter cooling so I can taste it.. although I trust my nieces..Amy & Amber.. who have been writting post after post about the taste of this wonderful pie for the last three hours.. I started drooling the moment I saw the picture! Amber is a wonderful cook and baker….If her and Amy Love it.. I know I will.. so I thought While it is cooling I would write this post.. but I won’t post it until I taste it!!
I just tasted my pie! This was thee freshest tasting pie I have ever ate! I love the freshness of the Pineapple..the creamyness of the custard..and the hint of coconut! This is a keeper..and I think would taste great on any day.. but in the heat of the summer..this one will ROCK! MY nieces were spot on with their reviews!! Pin this one.. you will want to try it! Trust me..!
NOTES on the baking of the pie!This pie is the easiest pie I think I have ever made! It is put together quickly…I have a convection oven so I only cooked it 45 minutes instead of the orginal time.. you should know your oven.. like I do.. and you can just tell when it is ready… Amber suggested cutting back on the corn syrup..I used 1/2 cup..( it was a little too sweet ) instead of the one cup in the recipe.. Amy suggested putting it in the frig to cool..staying the cooled pie was even better then the first piece they raved about so much!! So mine is now in the frig!…I already have ideals spinning around in this little brain of mine…to see how I can put my own spin on it..I will post any changes I make to this wonderful pie when I try the ideals..
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup flaked coconut
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)

Told you it was easy peasy! It takes longer to cool, than to mix the ingredients and bake!
