Millionaire Pie Recipe

Millionaire Pie Recipe

When I was growing up, my mom always made a frozen fruit salad for each holiday. While pursuing my Facebook feed this past holiday season, I saw a simple recipe for a delicious new dessert called Millionaire Pie. The fruit-based pie contained so many of the same goodies as my mom’s fruit salad — but in pie form. Plus the recipe called for pecans, and my daughter and I love pecan everything. For Christmas this year, I modified the original recipe to create my own version of Millionaire Pie. The result was a decadent but not overly sweet holiday dessert that I plan to make for other holidays and celebrations as well.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Drain the pineapple and maraschino cherries. Reserve the maraschino cherry juice.
  2. Combine the sweetened condensed milk, coconut, pineapple, maraschino cherries, pecans, lemon juice, and maraschino cherry juice in a large bowl.
  3. Stir gently until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Fold in the whipped cream.
  5. Pour the mixture into the graham cracker crust.
  6. Refrigerate the pie for at least three house.
  7. Garnish the pie with additional whipped cream immediately before serving.
  8. Refrigerate any uneaten millionaire pie.
