Pineapple Sour Cream Pie

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"A luscious alternative to lemon meringue pie, this dessert is one of our favorites. The meringue is so creamy and the pineapple filling so refreshing that your family will request it again and again. --P. Lauren Fay-Neri, Syracuse, New York"

  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar and flour. Stir in pineapple and sour cream until combined. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
  2. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Pour into pastry shell.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spread evenly over hot filling, sealing edges to crust.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until meringue is golden. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.

I just used this meringue recipe - first time I made meringue and it turned out awesome!! I will try the entire pie, someday!

It wasn't bad it just didn't have the WOW! Factor I wanted, my neighbors however really enjoyed it. I tasted too much like a fruit salad for my liking.
