My mom made this when we were kids and we all loved it. It is a pie that when you say 'jello pie' you can remember the taste and want some. It's easy to make, refreshing to eat, and everyone will enjoy it.

1 9-inch pie


  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple

  • cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 (3 ounce) package cherry-flavored gelatin mix (such as Jell-O®)

  • 1 cup vanilla wafer cookies, or as needed

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk


  1. Mix pineapple, sugar, and eggs together in a saucepan; bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking until mixture thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir gelatin mix into pineapple mixture. Set aside to cool.

  2. Line a pie dish with enough vanilla wafers to cover bottom.

  3. Beat milk in a large bowl using an electric mixer until thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir gelatin mixture into whipped milk and pour over vanilla wafers. Refrigerate until set, about 8 hours.

Cook's Note:

Strawberry-flavored gelatin can also be used if desired.
