“This is the one recipe I always request that my dad's mother make for the holidays. I've never had another pineapple pie to compare and, believe me, I've looked. This is a GOOD pie. Her sister always gets two of these for her birthday - one for her and one for everyone else! LOL I finally got the recipe when I got married and I could hardly wait to share it. (Now if I can just get the recipe for her crusts...) This pie is good cold or at room temperature and is DELICIOUS while still slightly warm.”
