The crust in fabulous!! The filing was sort of bland. I love pineapple, but not sure how to perk up the filling, crushed pineapple was just not enough. Next time will try a different filling. Anyone have any ideas to perk up the filling?

I agree with Barb50. The crust was great, but the filling tasted like vanilla pudding. The pineapple just isn't strong enough. King Arthur Flour website has a pineapple juice powder and extract. I might try that next time. I will definetly keep the crust recipe.

If 1 star is "would not make again".....then that's it. Not bad, but it's as if someone was trying VERY hard to come up with an off the wall recipe. The crust was just ok, my filling was good as well as flavorful, possibly because I used pineapple extract instead of vanilla......but the addition of coconut did nothing for me and the meringue totally lost me. My husband did not like it at all.....to me it was just so-so. Too many conflicting tastes going on here.

We love this recipe! This has become our traditional summer go-to dessert. I won't say it's the easiest pie to make for beginners, but it's definitely worth it!!!

Amazing!! Everyone in my very large family loved it, and i make it regularly. Obviously the filling is clearly just a recipe for home-made vanilla pudding, so as a substitute a much easier step is to buy the instant. But as long as youre capable of making your own crust and meringue, you should have no trouble.
