For those of you in the Houston area, there was a cafeteria named Furr’s, that served this amazing pie called Pineapple Millionaire Pie. Give this a try~ I am sure you’ll be glad you did. For all others, if you love pineapple you won’t be disappointed with this!!

 

WHAT YOU NEED!!!

  •  
    • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
    • 1/4 lb  lb butter, softened ~ Use BUTTER~ NOT margarine!!!
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 (9 inch) pie crusts, baked
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
    • 1 cup canned crushed pineapple, well drained
    • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

MAKE IT!!!

  1. Cream 2 cups powdered sugar and butter with electric mixer until fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, salt and vanilla.
  3. Beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Spread mixture evenly into baked pie crusts.
  5. Chill.
  6. Whip cream until stiff.
  7. Blend in powdered sugar; fold in pineapple and pecans.
  8. Spread mixture on top of filling and chill thoroughly.
Make sure that you cream your butter with the powdered sugar before adding the other ingredients, to insure that you have a thick, creamy filling. You can also cheat if you don’t have a lot of time by spreading your pineapple directly onto the filling after it has chilled, and then use Cool Whip to top it off.  Just make sure that your pineapple is strained and patted dry, no matter which version you decide to go with.

“This tangy, creamy dip tastes just like buffalo chicken wings. It’s best served hot with crackers , celery sticks, or Tostidos. 
WHAT YOU NEED!!!
3 Chicken Breasts, Cooked, and either shreded or cut into chunks~ YOUR preference!
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese,
softened
1 cup Ranch dressing
3/4 cup pepper sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
 
1 bunch celery, cleaned and cut into 4
inch pieces
1 (8 ounce) box chicken-flavored
crackers
1 Bag Tostitos
MAKE IT!!!!
 
Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in half of the shredded cheese, and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, cover, and cook on Low setting until hot and bubbly. Serve with celery sticks, chicken crackers, or Tostitos. 
 
NOTE: I have also made this way: Mixed all ingredients and baked it in a uncovered casserole dish for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Then I converted it to a crock pot to keep it warm.
