Pineapple Pie in Pictures

Dear friends,

For my daughter's home school graduation banquet last week (see 

Joanna's Graduation in Pictures), each of the students brought their favorite dessert.   We made pineapple pie, which I've been fixing for my family for at least 20 years!  And it really is "as easy as pie"!

Just thoroughly mix these first three ingredients in a bowl: 1 pint sour cream, a 15 ounce can of crushed pineapple, and a small box of vanilla pudding.  Pour into graham cracker pie crust.  (You will have some left over. If you make two batches of filling, you will have enough for three pie shells.) Chill.  How simple is that?  

(Yeah, we have to label food that we are saving for special recipes -- or someone will snack on it!  And we use store brands nearly all the time; Great Value is from Walmart and we've never had a problem with it.  We also shop at Aldi.)

If you're going somewhere, take the plastic insert that comes in the pie crust package, rinse off the residue, turn it over, and use it for a lid!

If you don't want to buy a prepared graham cracker crust, you can make your own with graham cracker crumbs and melted butter, lightly baked in the oven.  (See more instructions for a homemade graham cracker crust here: Christmas Brunch and Dinner Menus, Plus Pineapple Pie Recipe) Or you can skip the crust and just make the filling, serving in parfait glasses layered with whipped cream if you want to get all fancy schmancy!

Bon appetit!
