This is my husband's absolute favorite pie, and I knew if I was ever going to make it for him, I was going to have to get the best recipe I could find, so who better to get it from than his very own mother!
So, here we go . . .
Part One - The Base
1 9-inch pie shell
1/4 stick of butter at room temperature
1/2 pound powdered sugar
3 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Whip butter, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Pour into baked pie shell and spread with the following:
(Now don't eat all that yellow rich goodness before you make the topping! If you do that, you won't have a pie to share, unless of course that is what you're hoping for!)
Part Two - The Topping
1 cup whipping cream
5 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 cup crushed pineapple (drained well)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Whip cream, gradually adding powdered sugar; fold in well-drained pineapple and pecans. Pile on top of the first mixture and refrigerate for several hours.
Hope you enjoy! I'd love to hear from you after you try it! Or before, or anytime for that matter!
