Custard pie is brightened with crushed pineapple in this fun and easy pie. When I was little, my best-friends great-aunt Tootie would make this pie for the family each and every summer at her home in Iowa and it became a favorite of my family too!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Stir together 1/3 cup of sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Stir in the crushed pineapple with the juice, then bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture has thickened and turned clear. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  3. While the pineapple mixture is cooling, place the milk, vanilla extract, cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt into a blender. Pulse until the mixture is combined, then add an egg and pulse until smooth. Add the remaining egg, and pulse again until the mixture is smooth. Pour into the pie shell and smooth the top. Carefully pour the pineapple mixture over the pie until evenly covered, then sprinkle with a pinch of nutmeg.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), and continue baking until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes more. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for several hours before serving cold.

As the best friend mentioned above, who finally joined this site (thanks Lis!), I have one correction to share that may improve the recipe, especially for the person who already tried it. The pineapple should be the first layer: Spread pineapple over crust; pour blended cream cheese over it. Sprinkle top with nutmeg (Aunt Tootie's secret ingredient) Enjoy!

I'm on the fence about this one. The flavor and the texture is good. It is not as sweet as I thought it would be. The initial layer taste more like a custard. I thought it would taste more like a cheese cake? Also, mine got so runny that the pinapple sunk in some spots. I think it is supposed to have 2 distinct layers. I have never had pineapple pie and I had all the ingrediants in the pantry so I gave it a whirl. Thanks for sharing.

This pie is VERY good! I didn't use a blender, just a beater to make the custard mixture fluffy, and followed the advice to put the pineapple filling on the bottom. Yum!
