Hey there! I’m Megan from Chaos Served Daily, and I’m thrilled to be guest posting at The Taylor House…and I can’t wait to share this creamy, delectable Millionaire Pie recipe with you.
So Growing up, our nearest “shopping” was a 45 minute drive away, in Tulsa. Occasionally, my grandma would go with us (I think she had to have time to forget what shopping with my brother and me was like, so she didn’t go often). Her very favorite place for lunch was a cafeteria called Furr’s. They may still exist in the South…I haven’t been to one in years, despite my mom’s best efforts. “Let’s go to Furr’s and just have trays full of vegetables,” she’ll say. The vegetables there are not all that and a bag of chips, so I don’t fall for it. One thing I do remember loving from Furr’s was the Millionaire Pie.
You can find many (maybe millions!) copycat recipes for the pie online, but this is the one my family makes. It’s almost like cheating when you say you’ve made a pie with this recipe…it takes less than ten minutes, and you never have to turn on the stove or oven. Perfect for the hot, hazy days of summer when all you want to do is have fun and try to stay cool. And eat cool, creamy, refreshing pie, of course.
How to make Millionaire Pie
- 20 oz can crushed pineapple, well-drained
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk (lowfat or fatfree work as well)
- 6 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 cup pecans, finely chopped
- 8 oz whipped topping (or 1 cup whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks)
- 9”graham cracker crust (or shortbread or chocolate crust)…you can also use two crusts for a flatter pie
1. Stir together all ingredients (except crust) and let sit until slightly firm, about 5 minutes or so. Spoon into crust, mounding in center. Or, divide evenly between two crusts for a less thick pie. But where’s the fun in that?
2. Refrigerate three hours, or until firm. Click here for the printable recipe You’ll notice I’ve included the directions for making this into two pies, less full (obviously) than just one would be. Let your conscience be your guide.
