Look At That Pie!!!

Tonight after I got back from chasing down the green beans that"have left the planet", my next task was to make Millionare pies for friends of DH that have done such extremely nice things for me.

 

I had all the beautiful fruits and my graham cracker crusts and made the pies.  Between the two pies, I had enough for one other and just happened to have an extra crust!  

 

Has anyone made a Millionare Pie?  I use crushed pineapple, mandrian oranges, white grapes, halved and chopped pecans.

My husband would love that pie. It looks like ambrosia in a pie form and he loves ambrosia. Thanks for posting. 

Sometimes the strength within you is not a big fiery flame for all to see. It is just a tiny spark that whispers ever so softly "You Got This - Keep Going"

My mother used to make that, it is scrumptious.  A nice summer pie.  I haven't thought about that pie in years.

Yum! That would make a pretty pie for Easter dinner.

 

Can you share your recipe? It looks like there are a lot of versions out there. I'd rather use a "tried and true" one.

@Whatnow This one is a really "oldie but goodie"!!!  I'm more than happy to share it with you.

 

Millionare Pie

 

1 can sweetened condensed milk Llike Eagle Brand (not evaporated milk)

1  lemon, juiced

1 graham cracker crust

1 small can crushed pineapple, well drained

1/2 C halved green grapes

1/2 C mandrian oranges, drained and halved

1/2 C chopped pecans

1 8 oz container Cool Whip, thawed

 

In large bowl, mix lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk.

Add in pineapple, grapes, mandrian oranges, and pecans.

 

Fold in cool whip.

Pour into graham cracker crust and chill over night.

 

You could add coconut and slightly decrease the fruits, or take away the grapes.

Some people drain maraschino cherries and use them.

 

Enjoy!
