Servings: 1 deep-dish pie
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 package refrigerated pie crust
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/3 cup sugar, plus 1/3 cup
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup, undrained
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups heavy whipping cream

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Roll the pie crust on a floured surface into a 12-inch circle. Put the crust into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate; fold the edges under and crimp. Prick the bottom and sides of the pie crust with a fork. Bake until the crust is lightly browned, about 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a small bowl, soften the gelatin in cold water; set aside.

In the top of a double boiler, combine the eggs yolks and 1/3 cup of sugar. Add the undrained pineapple and lemon juice. Cook over simmering water, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the softened gelatin mixture and let cool for 30 minutes.

In a medium bowl, beat the heavy cream with an electric mixer until foamy. With mixer running, gradually add the remaining 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat until soft peaks form, then fold it into the cooled pineapple mixture. Spoon the pineapple cream into the baked pie shell and freeze until set, about 4 to 6 hours.

I am a 'What if' person, so after trying the pineapple freezer pie I said, "What if I changed the fruit and tried, peaches?" Well, after making it and serving it to family and friends, it is an overwhelming hit in Rock Hill, SC. My next 'What if' is going to be an apple freezer pie...I'll let you know how that one goes over!!
