Pineapple Coconut Pie

Can you go wrong with pineapple and coconut in a pie..I think not! Drizzle a bit of glaze on top or serve warm with ice cream and you have a delicious dessert to serve your guests.

  • Pastry for a 9" double crust pie
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 can ( 540 ml/19 oz ) crushed pineapple, drained (reserve 1 tablespoon juice for glaze)
  1. Prepare your favorite pie crust, enough for a 9" double crust pie. Roll out dough to fit a 9" pan and sprinkle with coconut.
  2. Drain crushed pineapple, reserving 1 tablespoon for the glaze.
  3. Whisk together sugar, flour, salt, lemon juice, melted butter, and drained, crushed pineapple and pour over coconut layer.
  4. Roll out pastry for top crust and place over filling.
  5. Trim and crimp edges. Cut slits in pastry.
  6. Bake at 400º for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden in color.
For glaze combine:
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pineapple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract (or vanilla)
  1. Drizzle over warm pie. Serve warm or cold.

Since I had made a larger recipe of pie dough than I needed, I used the rest of the dough to make tart shells. I love the simple way of draping the dough over an upside down muffin tin before baking. How easy is that?


  1. Oh boy - that looks really good! How clever to use an upside down muffin tin to form the tart shells - I have to try that!

  2. This looks delicious. Should I use sweetened or unsweetened coconut?

    1. is delicious! I used sweetened coconut.

  3. That really sounds like a great pie...I made a coconut cream this morning, along with a cherry pie and a strawberry pie...
    Our girl's birthday dinner tonight. :)
    what a neat way to make little pie shells...

  4. Oh, MY!!!! Sounds delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

  5. oh boy am in heaven :) Betty how long did you bake your tarts

    1. Shirley, I baked the tart shells in a 400º oven for approx 12 to 15 minutes, until golden in color.

    2. Thanks Betty :)

  6. You're at the cabin!! Looks so good! My mouth is watering... might have to attempt this! Love the rustic rolling pin too!

    1. recognize where I took the photos:) The good old rolling pin, it's an antique:) And yes the pie was good, you must give it a try!

  7. Wow this looks like Tropical dream in one dish! I was worried it would be hard to make, but it looks really easy! This pie would be great for our next potluck! Thanks a lot for sharing! :)
