My family loves this pie.I use crushed pineapple on its own juice not heavy syrup. I add 1/4 of coconut to the filling and I use real cream for the topping. I have made it with the graham cookie crust when I don't want to use the oven. Any way it is delicious.

This is an excellent pie. Use extra cornstarch. Made it last Thanksgiving and will be making it again.

Made this for 4th of July this year and it was a hit! I used 1/3 cu of corn starch as recommended in the reviews, and it set up just fine. I used graham cracker crust instead of the crust in this recipe, and really liked the combination. Very easy recipe and great, fruity pie for the summer!

I made this tonight and it was excellent-it set up fine with using the required amount of cornstarch-I did add a little more cream of coconut, didn't have coconut extract so used almond instead-came out great!!! Would definitely make again.

Really good dessert and fairly easy to make. I loved the addition of pineapple. My husband doesn't like the texture of coconut, so he liked that this pie was only flavored with coconut. I followed the directions exactly and had no trouble with the custard setting, as other reviewers did. I did cheat and used a frozen, pre-made pie shell, and I used real whipped cream instead of whipped topping. So good!

The flavor was excellent but after 4 hours in the fridge still hadn't set up- and didn't set up after an extra hour in the freezer- finally just froze it and it was fine but lost the creaminess... :(
