“If you like Pina Colodas and gettin’ caught in the rain…” Remember that old song? It was probably a bit overplayed on the radio back in the 1970s. Well, here’s a new one we think you’re gonna like a lot better: “If you like Pina Coladas in your pie, then you’ve gotta check out this brilliant new recipe!”
Pina Colodas in pie? Really? Can that actually taste good? Oh yeah, baby, we’ve tried it and it is GRAND! This recipe is perfect for summer time at the beach, pool, or backyard barbeque. Or any time you want to bring a zesty, tropical, summer party into your home! This is also a great pie for any kind of celebration! It’s a happy pie, really! With all of its bright cheery pineapples and cherries on top, it makes you smile just looking at it.
Yep, pineapple filling with coconut and whipped cream… Doesn’t that sound like a show stopper to you? And the secret filling is flavoured with coconut rum (unless you’re feeding it to the kids, then you would just use more coconut). The rum gives it such a lovely rich flavour – and it’s Pina Colada Pie, after all!
And just who is responsible for this amazing celebration pie recipe? This one’s from Lindsay over at “Life Love and Sugar”. Lindsay lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and Jessie, their beautiful Black Lab. Lindsay has a great love for all things SUGAR, as you can see from her blog title! And of all things sugar, what is her absolute favourite dessert (aside from Pina Colada Pie, that is)? Cake! Lindsay loves baking cakes. And not just any old kind of cake either. She loves making “elaborate and beautiful cakes”. So you might want to check out her blog – not just for this wonderful pie recipe, but for all of her lovely cakes, too.
Pineapples can be eaten fresh, cooked, juiced, and preserved. They are found in a wide array of cuisines. In addition to consumption, the pineapple leaves are used to produce the textile fiber piña in the Philippines, commonly used as the material for the men's Barong Tagalog and women's Baro't saya formal wear in the country. The fiber from the pineapple is also used as a component for wallpaper and other furnishings. The flesh and juice of the pineapple is used in cuisines around the world. In many tropical countries, the pineapple is prepared, and sold on roadsides as a snack. The pineapple is sold whole, or in halves with a stick inserted. Whole, cored pineapple slices with a cherry in the middle are a common garnish on baked hams in the West. Chunks of pineapple are used in desserts such as fruit salad, as well as in some savory dishes, including pizza toppings and a grilled ring on a hamburger. Crushed pineapple is used in yogurt, jam, sweets, and ice cream. The juice of the pineapple is served as a beverage, and it is also the main ingredient in cocktails such as the piña colada.
