Deserts For Thanksgiving

Dang Good Pie

Dang Good Pie


3 tablespoons four
¼ teaspoon salt
3 eggs
6 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled.
1 cup canned crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
1 prepared pie crust

Set the oven rack in the middle position.  Pre-heat the oven to 350F.

To make the filling Add the flour and salt to a small bowl and whisk to combine.  Set aside.

Add the eggs to a large bowl and whisk.  Add the butter to the eggs and whisk to combine.  Add the flour
And salt and continue whisking.  Add the crushed pineapple and coconut whisking.  Add the crushed pineapple and coconut and mix in. Add the sugar and chopped pecans.

Pour the filling into the piecrust.  Bake the pie for 25 minutes, covering with rented aluminum foil if the crust is browning too quickly.  Do not allow the foil to touch the filling.  Continue baking for another 30 to 35 minutes.  The pie is done when a metal tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  The surface of the pie should be golden brown and firm.

Remove the pie from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.  Place the cooked pie in the refrigerator, uncovered, for at least 3 hours before cutting.  Decorate with puffs of sweetened whipped cream around the edge of the pie before serving.    Any leftover pie should be loosely wrapped with wax paper and stored on the refrigerator.
