Today I plan to make up a summer pineapple pie and let me tell you if you/re looking for a last minute summery treat to whip up for the family or a last minute get together this is for you!
Summer brings people together on back patios for backyard BBQ’s and swim parties for the littles, all accompanied by amazing foods and a good fruity salad or other fruit treats layered with whipped toppings. This is definitely one of those treats that will have people coming back to the table for more. It’s fruity, light, cool and mouth-watering
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 3 tbsp flour
- dash of salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 16 large marshmallows, quartered or a few cups of mini mallows
- 1 20oz can crushed pineapple
- 1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped
- 1 package Nilla Wafers
Begin by whisking your dry ingredients together.
Add 2/3 cup of pineapple juice from the can and blend.
Put the mixture in a saucepan over low heat and stir constantly until it starts to thicken.
Add egg and crushed pineapple to the mixture and continue to stir until thickened.
Then, add your marshmallows and stir til melted. Cool the mixture in the fridge for 1 hour
While your mixture is cooling, crush up 12–14 wafers and layer in the bottom on an 8in pie pan, using whole wafers to line the edges. Once cool, fold your pineapple mixture into your whipped cream and spoon mixture onto wafer crust.
Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
This summer pineapple pie is definitely a winner with the kiddos too! I have the pickiest of eaters and they loved this light and fluffy treat. I am curious to see if the same recipe would work with different fruits? Have you made anything similar? I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments.
