From Phil Murphy


Phil is a good cook and says he gets it from his Mom, “Here's a recipe I found on my computer -- courtesy of my Mother. I had her give me all of her recipes that had been favorites of mine several months before she passed away. This one is awesome! “


     1          cup granulated Sugar

     3          tablespoons Cornstarch

     1/4       teaspoon Salt

     1          tablespoon Orange Juice

     1          30-ounce can Crushed Pineapple with Juice

     1          unbaked 9-inch 2-crust pie shell


In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and pineapple (w/ juice). Cook over medium heat, stirring until it thickens and boils. Continue boiling one minute longer and pour into the prepared pie shell; cover with the top crust. Prick top crust and bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crust is golden.
