Pineapple Pie

Pineapple Pie

In the Philippines where different varieties of fruits abound the whole year round, different dishes and recipes have been created. One of the fruits in abundance is the pineapple. This tropical plant is not only known for its edible fruit but for other uses as well. It is known to be the most economically important plant in its family. It could be consumed canned, fresh or juiced, and is found in various food preparations, from fruit salads to desserts, ice cream, candy, jam and as an ingredient in meat dishes. The leaves are converted to pina, a textile fiber. It is picked when it is already ripe.

Pies are baked dishes which are made of a pastry dough casing. This dough covers a filling of different savory and sweet ingredients. This pie is second in popularity to the Buko (young coconut) Pie in the Philippines. They even make them with both fillings, called Buko-Pineapple Pie. You could say that the closest it resembles is the Lemon Meringue Pie.

Before they created the real thing, most of us grew up with the local bakery’s version of the Pineapple Pie. The filling consisted of pineapple-flavored jelly, but we didn’t care because it still tasted good.

Presently, there are a lot of places that bake these pies especially up north. This pie is not only tasty but also easy to make. This mouth-watering dessert smells so amazing with the aroma of the pineapple filling, that eating one slice may not be enough. So try this tasty and easy recipe, and have a little taste of the tropical goodness of the pineapple.
