We certainly have had a lot of inquiries about this recipe - an old standby, which came up recently in conversation on the program. It sets up in the refrigerator in about a half hour with no cooking required, and the assembly takes less than 5 minutes. It’s not really cheesecake, of course – but it’s a quick and tasty dessert.
|MAKES ONE 8 OR 9 INCH PIE
| 1 small can, crushed pineapple (see *Cook’s Note below)
including the liquid in the can
1 large package, INSTANT vanilla pudding (powdered mix)
1, 16-ounce carton, sour cream
1 prepared pie shell – such as ready-made graham cracker crust
garnish items as desired (sliced almonds, mint sprig, sliced fruit, etc.)
Do not prepare the instant pudding according to package directions; place the powder in a mixing bowl. Add all remaining ingredients (including the juice from the can of crushed fruit) and blend thoroughly.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour, or until set. Garnish as desired.
