Making a pineapple cream pie is a quick and easy process, and it’s perfect for any occasion.
This dish is perfect for those who love pineapple and want something different than the usual apple or pumpkin pie. This recipe can be made in just 25 minutes and includes many ingredients that are not only delicious but also healthy!
1 unbaked 9-inch Graham cracker crust
1 cup cold whole milk
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 can pineapple slices (8 ounces), drained and juice reserved
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your pie crust in a 9-inch pie pan. If you don’t have a pie dish, consider using a cake pan or casserole dish instead of making this dish into a pie shape. If you’re planning on just eating the pineapple cream filling and not putting it all together as a pineapple cream pie, then we strongly recommend that you use either an 8-inch cake pan or an 8-inch casserole dish. Make sure that you grease the surface of whatever dish you choose to use.
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, sugar, flour, and salt until everything is combined and there are no lumps. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook while stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and boils. Be very careful not to let this mixture boil over or it will make a huge mess!
Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla extract until everything is melted and smooth. Pour the pineapple cream mixture into your prepared pie crust. Top with pineapple slices (you might have some leftover pineapple slices) and place the pie on a baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes or until the filling is set.
Let the pineapple cream pie cool to room temperature before serving. You can serve this with whipped cream if you like!
