Pineapple Pie

Petitpois | Nov 5, 200705:20 PM     11

Hi hounds,

I come to you for help. Going to visit my husband's grandfather next week -- hs is 87 and a HUGE fan of pineapple pie. Apparently, it is his favorite food in the world. Does anyone have a recipe for this ambrosia? I've looked up a few on-line, but I'm not sure if it's a double-crusted version with canned pineapple, sugar and cornstarch (and that's about it -- sounds disgusting but if that's what he's expecting...) or Epicurious also has a version with custard, coconut and macadamia nuts. Is there another classic recipe? Can anyone help?

What would an 87-year-old-man expect from a pineapple pie???

Thanks!
