This pie is a tropical version of a pecan pie that I came up with. Everyone that tries it loves it! With the fruits and macadamia nuts it reminds me of something that would be served on a tropical island, and the addition of the maraschino cherries makes it even great to look at. DELICIOUS and I promise you won't be disappointed !!!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • In a bowl, mix the pineapple with juice, sugar, corn syrup, and flour. One by one, mix in the coconut, macadamia nuts, cherries, eggs, and vanilla. Scoop the filling mixture into the crust. Drizzle the pie with the melted butter.

  • Bake loosely covered with foil for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. I like to sit my pie on a cookie sheet or something in case of spillage. Remove foil, and continue baking 30 minutes. Cool, and chill 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator before serving.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This pie is heavenly! I tried it for the first time on my brother and his family. Everyone even my niece who was visiting from the culinary academy said it was the best pie they had ever tasted. My brother even asked for a second helping! The fact that there's no top crust didn't appeal to me so I added a lattice top crust which made the pie look even more luscious. This is definitely a keeper!!! Read More

I recently made this recipe for a family gathering and everyone loved it! A previous review said that this pie was too sweet..she's crazy. What would you expect when the creator said that this was a version of pecan pie which is very sweet in itself? As for the macadamia nuts...yes they are on the pricey side but no one ever said that you couldnt substitute them for another cheaper kind of nut. I have made this twice - once with macadamian nuts and the other 50/50 with macadamian and toasted pecans. Both times this pie was sweet rich and oh so yummy!! You definitly want to have a big glass of milk to drink with this heavenly delight! Read More

I made this pie for my dad for christmas. My dad is pretty honest and does not tell me what i want to hear (on anything). he said to give this pie 20 stars i said sorry dad only goes up to 5 lol. He said his favorite pie is pecan but now that has changed to this one. I am a beginner in this and making this pie was very easy and it came out perfect. Read More

This pie was delicious! I am 20 and have been making pies since I was roughly 13 and my own pie crust since I was 16. So I made my own pie crust instead of a store bought one and added a small amount of coconut to the pie crust and it just gave an extra interesting flavor to the pie! I highly recommend making your own pie crust! Read More

Much too sweet and very expensive. (Macadamia nuts were 6!) I wish I hadn't wasted my time on this one. Some people at Thanksgiving dinner said it was good but I think they were just being nice. My close relatives said YUCK. Read More
