  • Separate the eggs.

  • Combine 3/4 cup white sugar, flour, salt, crushed pineapple, sour cream, and lemon juice in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture is thick and bubbly. Gradually pour the cooked pineapple mixture into the beaten egg yolks, whisking constantly; return mixture to the saucepan. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes longer. Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually stir in the remaining 1/3 cup sugar and continue to beat egg whites until stiff and glossy.

  • Spoon cooled filling into graham wafer crust and top with the meringue. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes or until golden. Let pie cool and serve.

I made his recipe on a whim because I had found a can of crushed pineapple in the cabinet. I made it with a single recipe crust instead of graham cracker crust and substituted brown sugar for the white sugar. Itcame out simply beautiful and was gobbled up by even my pickist eaters before a full 24 hours had passed! I will mke this again for sure!!!! Read More

I like the idea of this pie but on my first attempt at making it the custard was just not what I expected. I didn't thicken well and tasted of flour. I measured exactly on all ingredients and cooked the custard even a minute or two ended up freezing it and serving it with whipped cream. Read More

What a great pie! And very easy too. The meringue cuts the tartness of the filling. I'll be making this again. Read More

Pretty good pie very simple to make. Don't try it if you don't like pineapple. I don't like meringue so I put whipped topping on it and it was very good. I took it to work since no one at home but me likes pineapple and my coworkers loved it. I will be making this again. Read More

I found this to be an excellent pie. I used a baked pie dough crust vs. a graham crust. I made my topping with 5 egg whites. Read More

Very rarely make any time of cream pie (except lemon) but the sour cream takes this into another realm - don't changr a thing because this is perfect. Invite your friends if it is too big for 2. Read More

This is one of my Gramma's specialty recipes; it is neat to see it on here too! I put the entire can of pineapple (juice and all) into the mix and cut the eggs back to two... put into two graham cracker crusts allow to completely cool and then top with whipped cream. SUPER yummy!! Read More
