Easiest Dessert Pie You'll Ever Make!

I did this for Thanksgiving last year and everyone loved it so much that the extended family requested it again for Christmas. Even non-cooks can make it in a few minutes.

1. Mix together a 14 can of sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated!) with a small can (10 ounces) of crushed pineapple and 1/3 cup lemon juice.

2. Stir in 1/3 cup of flaked coconut and 1/3 cup chopped nuts... I like to use walnuts.

3. Fold in 12 ounces of Cool Whip.

That's it except to pour it all into a large graham cracker crust. If your supermarket doesn't sell the really large ones, I guess it would work with two of the regular size.

You'll want to chill this for a few hours, but overnight is better.

Oh, wow.. that sounds absolutely delicious! So, do all of the flavors just blend together? Or does any one flavor seem to stand out? I *love* pineapple and Cool Whip! I am not a huge fan of coconut. But, I like it. If the coconut just blended with other flavors, I think I'd love it!

I'll have to give this one a try. I am not a great cook. But, this... I can handle! :D

The flavors blend together, yes. I can't recall anything sticking out more than something else. Someone mentioned Hawaiian, yes, that's the flavor and if I'd have to name it, I'd probably call it Hawaiian Cream Pie. :nod: The only thing I don't like is that Cool Whip comes in either 8 or 16 ounce containers and this takes 12, but I just buy the 16 and have some leftover.

Oh man. I don't make things very often but I might actually go out and try this. Does anybody have a picture of how it should look when it's done?

So let me get this straight, no actual cooking or baking required? Awesome! :D

Whoever is the first to try this has to share how it turns out! I am so not 'skilled' when it comes to cooking. So, seems like I would *have* to get it right! I wonder. :rolleyes:

So, I would love to hear how it turns out for you, and if you all have any 'tips'. I need to try it out for sure before Thanksgiving (if I decide to make it for Thanksgiving) It sounds just perfect! Cool and light...

You got it, no baking, just chilling... took me about 5 minutes. Just remember to use the sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated. I think that stuff can make ANY recipe taste great... and the large graham crust. I'm hoping my sister asks me to make this for Thanksgiving again... I don't really like taking hours to cook for 30 people if I can make something like this in a few minutes. :nod: I don't have a pic, sorry! but it's just white from the Cool Whip with bits of the crushed pineapple showing through.
