Pineapple pie is sold in my hometown of Tampico. It always brings back sweet memories. You can use store-bought pie crust or use your favorite recipe to make it. The tradition of drinking coffee with a piece of sweet bread is deeply rooted in our Mexican culture. Try our Pineapple Pie Recipe today!
– Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter to the flour mixture. With the help of a fork, mix until the texture resembles coarse cornmeal, then add the eggs one by one and continue mixing with the fork or a pastry cutter.
– Place the dough on a work surface (that is lightly dusted with flour) where you can knead it with your hands. If the dough is very dry, add the two tablespoons of cold milk little by little.
– Divide the dough into two pieces, then press down on them to form two disks. Cover them with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least a half hour. Remove from the fridge when you’re ready to bake, and the filling is completely cold.
– To roll the dough, use a rolling pin to flatten each disk on a floured surface. Flatten each piece out to form a circle about 12 inches in diameter and ⅛ of an inch thick. Line your pie dish with the first one and use the other to cover the pie after you’ve added the filling.
