      RECIPE TITLE "Coconut Cream Pie with Pineapple" recipe excerpted source: Cooking Light magazine , JULY 2000
    posted by JudyC, courtesy of Cooks Online on Compuserve

    yields8 servingstime---difficultyeasy


    1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
    3 tablespoons ice water
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup vegetable shortening
    Cooking spray

    1 (8 1/4-ounce) can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup cornstarch
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    2 tablespoons cream of coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
    1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
    1/4 cup flaked sweetened coconut, toasted


    Preheat oven to 425°.

    To prepare crust, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine 1/4 cup flour and water; stir with a whisk until well-blended.

    Combine 3/4 cup flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add slurry; mix with a fork until flour mixture is moist.

    Press mixture gently into a 4-inch circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap, and cover with additional plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into a 12-inch circle. Freeze for 10 minutes.

    Remove 1 sheet of plastic wrap, and fit the dough into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap. Fold edges under, and flute. Line the dough with a piece of foil, and arrange pie weights or dried beans on foil. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until the edge is lightly browned. Remove pie weights and foil; cool crust on a wire rack.

    To prepare filling, drain pineapple in a colander, and spoon into the prepared crust. Combine 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a saucepan, and stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook for 1 minute, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add about 1/3 cup hot custard to beaten eggs; stir constantly with a whisk. Return egg mixture to pan. Cook for 2 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove mixture from heat; stir in cream of coconut and extracts. Spoon mixture into the prepared crust. Cover surface of filling with plastic wrap; chill until set (about 2 hours).

    Remove plastic wrap, and spread whipped topping evenly over filling. Sprinkle with coconut.

    HOT! We recommend:

    Pie Divider Press this aluminum pie divider onto the top of any 9" or 10" pie, quiche, or cake to score seven perfectly equal portions - then slice. A restaurant classic in dishwasher-safe aluminum, with easy-grab top handle.

    Lattice Pie Roller Run this nifty lattice pie roller over dough to cut alternating rows of crust in seconds. Now stretch over the top of your pie, and voila a perfect latticework pie crust! No more cutting strips and weaving pie crust by hand. Lattice pie roller is 8" long x 5" wide.

    Extra Rolling Pin Covers Set of 2 Pie crust, cookies, pasta, or biscuits will come out lighter, more tender, and flakier with this set. Set includes cloth and rolling pin cover, which absorb excess flour and prevent dough from sticking. Cotton. Cloth: 20" x 24"; cover: 14" long. Pastry Cloth Set is no longer available.

    Pie Weight ChainOur 6 foot chain of weighty stainless steel balls makes all those loose pie weights obsolete! Arrange it in the bottom of unbaked pie shells for even, crisp crusts. Food-safe and easy to clean.

    Baking Ring No more smoky, baked-on mess from pies and casseroles bubbling over onto the oven floor. 12" round aluminum ring fits under pans, allowing even heat distribution while catching spills. Non-stick finish. Hand wash
