Creamy Pineapple Pie

BY : PUBLISHED : April 10th, 2013 UPDATED: August 25th, 2021

I was asked to make a spring dessert for a Sunday brunch a few weeks ago. I wanted something that was sweet and tart. My local grocery store had pineapple on sale for $1.99, so I bought it! I used part of my grandmothers recipe for lemon pie, vegan-ized it and added fresh pine apple. Here is what I came up with.
