Yummy Pineapple Pie

28 Jun

AnanaspajThis yummy dessert has the look and feel of a cheesecake but not as heavy. It’s absolutely delicious and extremely easy to do. My friends adore it and are visibly disappointed if it’s not part of my dinner party menu. I sometimes vary the fruit with fresh strawberries (when in season), but reduce the amount of sugar in the filling as strawberries have a natural sweetness.

 

Ingredients:

Pie crust

  • 150g butter
  • 300 ml flour
  • 100 ml sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Filling

  • 1 can crushed pineapple (400ml) – all liquid thoroughly drained through a sieve prior to adding to mix
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 200ml crème fraiche
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 egg

Method

1. Put all the ingredients for the crust in a sauce pan on very low heat until the butter has just melted enough to be easy to work. Press the filling into a pie tin and shape along the bottom and the edges. A tin with removable sides is recommended. Leave to cool.

2. Mix all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and stir until evenly mixed. Pour the filling into the pie tin and place it in the oven at 175 degrees/gas mark 4 for approx 25-30 minutes. Check it from time to time by giving it a bit of a shake. If the filling seems a bit too runny, leave it a bit longer. It should have just set when you take it out.

Serve it warm with a bit of vanilla ice cream on the side. Yum!
