Make This Pie Recipe And Your Family Will Love You Even More.

I posted a picture of what was happening in my kitchen on Instagram this morning.

Pineapple Cream Cheese Pie

The caption: There are very few holiday traditions I care about, but on Thanksgiving I make pumpkin pie for everyone else and my mother-in-law’s pineapple cream cheese pie for myself. (Okay, I share a little.)

This pie is to die for. My mother-in-law has made it for Thanksgiving far longer than I’ve been married to Jim, and on the rare Thanksgivings when we aren’t all together, I make sure to get my butt into the kitchen to bake one. It’s my favorite homemade pie. I got her permission to share the recipe (yay for YOU!), so here it is. It may be too late for you to make it for Thanksgiving tomorrow, but I hear it tastes just as good on any other day. (Actually I know that’s true.)

  1. 1 large can of crushed pineapple
  2. 1/2 c sugar
  3. 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  4. 12 oz. cream cheese (that's 1 1/2 bricks)
  5. 1/2 c milk
  6. 1/2 tsp vanilla
  7. 1 tsp salt
  8. 3/4 c sugar
  9. 2 eggs
  10. chopped pecans/pecan chips
  1. Cook the first three ingredients in a saucepan until thick and clear. Let it cool.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Spread the pineapple mix into the bottom of a deep dish pie crust and top with the cream cheese mix. Sprinkle pecans over the top.
  4. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes and then at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
  1. 1. I always have more cream cheese mixture than will fit in the pie crust so I put the leftover in a small baking dish and bake it along with the pie. When it's done, I hide from my family and eat it.
  2. 2. If your family doesn't like pecans, you can leave them out or use less. If they love pecans, use a bunch!
