An easy summery pie.
Ingredients
  • 1 store bought pie crust (like a Keebler type)**
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 8 oz cans crushed pineapple, drained as much as possible
  • 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 large egg, pasteurized
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt (only if using unsalted butter)
  • 1/3 cup toasted and chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Prepare the crust as directed on the package and let cool.
  2. Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Beat in the vanilla and the sugar. Fold in the pineapple. Set aside.
  3. In a second bowl, beat the butter and 2 cups confectioners’ sugar until creamy. Beat in the vanilla, egg and salt.
  4. Spread the butter mixture over bottom of the shell, then spread the pineapple mixture over the butter mixture.
  5. Sprinkle top with toasted pecans.
  6. Chill overnight.
Notes
If you plan on using a homemade crust in a standard 9 inch size pie shell, you can keep the butter/sugar mixture the same and increase the whipped cream/pineapple mixture by 1 1/2. As written, this works best in a smaller size pie shell such as the ones you find on the baking aisle.
