Pineapple Coconut Pecan Pie

I recently happened upon a pictute of a Pineapple Coconut Pecan pie. It looked delicious! Does anyone have a recipe? I tried an internet search and came up with everything but what I was looking for. Let me describe what I saw. The pie had a bottom pie crust (not graham), with what looked like three layers- the bottom was a light custardy type filling, as was the top layer. The middle layer looked like pecan pie. The top also looked like it had cocout baked in.

  1. I've seen recipes for Pineapple Coconut Chess Pie, but I don't think it looks like how you describe your pie.

    1. oooh, a coconut custard pie with a pecan pie middle layer, and then a layer of pineapple custard. perhaps? i could get on board with that baby!

      edit: HOLY SMOKE!!! i must eat that PIE!!!
      from ed & kays in benton, arkansas!!

      1. Wow, that would be awesome.


        1. maybe you can divide the recipe and thus do this in layers (i'm going to be haunted by how to make some pie recipe work):

          Served by DONNA LEWIS

          3 eggs, beat well

          1 C. sugar

          2/3 C. white Karo

          1 t. vanilla

          1 C. pecans, chopped

          Pinch of salt

          1 C. coconut

          1 small can of drained pineapple

          Combine all ingredients and pour into crust.

          Bake at 300 degrees for approximately 1 hour or until firm -- don't overcook. Pie will continue to set a bit more as it cools.

          Donna uses ready-made Pillsbury roll-out pie crusts -- don't poke the crust.

              Thanks alkapal!

              I knew someone would come through for me!


            2. that pie must be 3" deep. i'd make a coconut custard recipe (and split that in half, with some well-drained crushed pineapple in part), and a plain old karo syrup pecan pie recipe, and then put them together. (frankly, i could skip the pineapple part and still be a very happy camper).
