How to make pineapple pie from scratch

The recipe is super easy to make at home.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 F, then simply stir all of the vegan pineapple pie filling ingredients together.

Smooth the fresh pineapple filling into any homemade or store-bought 9-inch pie crust or graham cracker crust, gluten free if needed.

Bake on the oven center rack for 35 minutes, let cool, slice, and serve.

Leftovers can be covered and refrigerated for up to 4 days, or you can freeze the dessert in an airtight covered container to thaw at a later date.

Pineapple cream cheese pie variation

Simply stir 8 oz cream cheese or vegan cream cheese into the filling before baking.

You can also stir in 1/2 cup of shredded coconut if desired.

Or, for a pineapple cheesecake, stir all of the filling ingredients together and spread over the batter of my Keto Cheesecake or this Vegan Cheesecake. Bake according to cheesecake directions.

This fruit pie is amazing topped with Coconut Whipped Cream

Fresh Hawaiian Pineapple Pie

According to google, people are most often searching for one of three different popular types of the fresh fruit pie.

Today’s recipe is closest to the internet version sometimes referred to as Johnny Cash’s mother’s pie. All you need is fresh or canned pineapple, regular or unrefined sugar (or erythritol for a low sugar pie), cornstarch, a pinch of salt to bring out the sweetness, optional shredded coconut, and a basic pie crust.

Hopefully someday I can also experiment to come up with a homemade recipe for Filipino pineapple pie or the ones McDonald’s apparently sells in Malaysia, because they both sound good too!

Fresh pineapples were on sale at the grocery store, so we bought two. We ate a lot of pineapple that week!

    I will definitely make the pineapple pie this weekend, using Nasoya vegan wonton wrappers as a crust (easy hack I discovered). We make crushed pineapple and I am confident that it will turn out fine:) Also, yesterday I made your vegan Levain cookies and my skeptical grandparents proclaimed them to be “the best chocolate chip cookie ever”. They’re NOT used to healthy desserts, and Grandma is the “Christmas cookie queen”, so that’s a real compliment. Your site has helped me on my journey to eat whole foods and delicious desserts every day!!

    What am I missing here…what is vegan pineapple? Is the meat removed or something? That’s just wierd. Next time I’m at the grocery store I’ma look for vegan pineapple.

    • CCK Media Team says

      Sorry we are confused, what do you mean by vegan pineapple? The ingredient list just calls for pineapple.

      • Adeline says

        Vegans won’t eat dairy because it comes from a cow. Also won’t eat eggs because they come from a chicken. They eat vegan cashew cheese.

    • Kelli says

      The pie recipe is vegan, not just the pineapple it isn’t a VEGAN-PINEAPPLE pie, it’s a vegan PINEAPPLE PIE.

    • CCK Media Team says

      Absolutely! Just make sure you crush the pineapple first so it’s reminiscent of canned crushed pineapple in texture.

      • Darla says

        I crushed fresh pineapple and made the pie. The filling tasted wonderful, but after it cooked the pineapple became so bitter that we had to throw it out. Not sure I would recommend fresh pineapple.

  3. Leah ruth Schroeder says

    I did it with the cream cheese and its baking now. Was in 35 min but center still doesn’t look set. Should I bake longer? Or will it set up while it cools?

    Hi! I’m trying to stay away from starches. Any idea if I could get the same results using coconut flour instead of corn starch?

      • Stephanie Molnar says

        I tried coconut flour last week and it didn’t do badly, but not like the stach did (I used arrowroot).

    • J says

      Coconut flour behaves very differently from starches. It literally sucks up loads of liquid. You may be able to use coconut flour, but definitely not in. 1:1 ratio and it will definitely change the texture of the finished product. Might still be good though. pineapple and coconut are delicious together-pina colada pie. 😉

    This is so incredibly simple and amazing! The only changes I made were to omit the salt and add in a teaspoon of vanilla. It’s perfect, and has earned a well deserved spot in my family’s favorites!

  7. Gigi says

    Love that this does not have eggs or butter. I will try this and will also try a coconut version without the pineapple. Looks so easy. Thank you!

  8. Dawn says

    I asked this before but did not get a response. I accidentally bought crushed pineapple in syrup, how much sugar should I used since it will be too sweet.

    We love this pie. I’ve made it so many times, and the only thing I’ve changed is the amount of sugar. I cut it in half, and it’s still sweet enough. I just made this pie over the weekend with fresh pineapple. The fresh pineapple was so sweet, I only used 1/8 cup of sugar. My husband thought the fresh pineapple had noticeably better flavor. Fresh or canned … you can’t miss with this pie. It’s great. It would be great to take to a pot luck or to an office get together.

    Thanks for the great recipe, Katie!!

    I had extra pie crust and canned pineapple (slices) so I looked for a recipe. I made it with the cream cheese and coconut added the first time and it was amazing. My husband loved it. I made it again for a gathering and this time I made two, one without coconut, for the non-coconut eaters. It was just as easy to make and bake, but the party is today so we haven’t tasted it yet. I have not tried it without the cream cheese because it’s just so good with it. This is definitely a new family recipe!
