Pineapple Coconut Cream Pie - TSLC

My family loves pineapple and this pie is great anytime.  I added nuts just because we like nuts in everything but the pie is just as good without them.

1 (9 inch) pie shell, cooked
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 egg yolks (keep the egg whites for the meringue)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups coconut
1/2 cup walnut pieces (Optional)
Cook pie crust according to package directions. (I used a Pillsbury frozen crust for this recipe) and set aside.  Mix sugar, cornstarch, pineapple with juice, sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla, coconut and egg yolks together and cook on top of the stove until bubbles and thickens stirring constantly.  This will burn easy so keep stirring. Turn heat down or remove from heat if starts to stick. I let mine cook about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in walnut pieces.  Pour into pie shell.  Makes one pie.

  1. This looks good but my husband doesn’t eat dairy, so I can’t use sour cream or evaporated milk, might try it without either

    Hey Judy, I have a very similar recipe for Pineapple sour cream Pie. Mine does not have the coconut. I bet this is good with the added coconut. Thank you, will definitely try this one too.

  3. I’m going to make this, pineapple & coconut are 2 of my favorite flavors. But I’ll have to use 4 egg whites for the meringue. My husband likes a meringue that’s higher than what your picture shows. I just cook the leftover yolk for the cat, she loves it.

  4. can this be made with fresh pineapple

    I am so happy someone on my Facebook page had one of your recipes on my wall. I looked your web page up and I’m in heaven. I love southern cooking and now can add some new recipes to my collection. Thank you for sharing.

  6. My meringue never turns out well. It pulls from the edge of the pie and leaves a liquid residue. Is there a secret? I did it just like your recipe said. ??

  8. No pie lasts a day at our house. I think I will try this one today since I already have most of the ingredients.

  9. Judy is there something I can substitute for the sour cream since I do not like?

  10. This looks so yummy, but I was wondering if it can be made the same way without the pineapple??? I would like it but I don’t think the rest of the family would!

  11. Thank you for beautiful receipt , they are great .

  12. Oh, wow! My son’s favorite pie is Pineapple Cream Pie, but this looks amazing!

    • I know my friend will love this pie , I know I will , I would not have though of these two together !! what a marriage ~~


  13. I seen this on fb yesterday….had to make it today… was very easy and looks beautiful…… cant wait for dessert!!

  14. Trying this for supper tonight. Love that it’s lower in sugar than a lot of pies

  15. That pie looks so delicious. I’ve never had that combination.
