Save Room for Dessert…Cool & Creamy Pineapple Pie

This is one of those go-to summer dessert recipes, although we love it so much that it appears on the dessert table all during the year. We make it with mandarin oranges, bananas, strawberries, even mangoes. I always add nuts, but nuts are entirely optional. Whichever fruit you choose, you’ll definitely want to save room for dessert!

Cool & Creamy Pineapple Pie
8-oz softened cream cheese
14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
20-oz can pineapple chunks in juice, drained
1-cup toasted & chopped pecans
Graham cracker crust

  • Beat cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together until thick and creamy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add lemon juice; mix another 30 seconds.
  • Stir in vanilla, pineapple, and pecans; pour into graham cracker crust.
  • Chill overnight before serving.
  • Garnish with whipped cream and maraschino cherries, if desired.

My son has had it in his head that he wants me to make a pineapple pie. I didn’t know that you really could…sounds perfect 🙂


wow, this looks delish! I love pineapple, anything pineapple.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I know, I can’t wait to see the Season Finale tomorrow! 🙂
