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.
– 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.
