Well, I didn't know if this would work when I started out. And I certainly didn't have a recipe. I've never been to Hawaii, so I really have no business dubbing this Hawaiian pie. But it seemed like a good idea at the time, and, given how fast it sold, I think it was.
(The color in this picture is a little blue, and I have no idea why. Oh, well.)
1 Pie crust (I used refrigerated roll-it-out)
1 box ready to cook vanilla pudding mix
1 cup crushed pineapple
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
1-1/2 cups milk
2 egg yolks
In a large microwavable bowl, whisk together the juices, milk and egg yolks. Whisk in the pudding mix, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, whisking every 30 to 60 seconds, until the mixture thickens. Line the pie plate with slivered almonds. After the pudding cools somewhat, stir in the pineapple and marshmallows, scoop into the pie shell, sprinkle the coconut over the top, and chill.
My dearly beloved and one of my sons thought this was not really sweet enough, but the rest thought it was wonderful. I didn't put whipped cream on it, because it was certainly rich enough, but you can choose to dress it up any way you want. It was a great summery dessert.
