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!!



    • 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


  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.


Buon appetito always!
