Pies are so easy to bake and taste so good.  This pie can be made from ingredients that are usually already in the pantry.  I used a pre-made frozen deep dish pie shell that can be picked up in almost any grocery store, and re-crimped the edges .  But you can certainly use your own homemade crust. 

Crushed Pineapple Pie

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 TBSP flour
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, with juice
  • 1 unbaked pie shell

Pre-heat the solar oven.  In a mixing bowl, beat the two eggs.  Add the melted butter, sugar, vanilla, and flour. Stir together.  Add the pineapple and juice and mix until the sugar is dissolved.  Pour into an unbaked pie shell. Pour into the unbaked pie shell.  Place into the hot solar oven. Bake uncovered.

Even though I live in Arizona, there are few absolutely perfect cooking days.  The cloudier it is, of course, the longer it takes to cook in a solar oven.  And there is definitely a point where you cannot cook.  This day was typical for this time of year — partly cloudy, partly sunny – more sunny than cloudy, but the clouds kept coming and going.  So I expected my pie to take a bit longer to cook than it would on a perfectly sunny day in July, but I still expected it to cook.  And cook it did.  After 4 hours in the solar oven, I was rewarded with the really pretty, golden brown pineapple pie.

(Bake 50 minutes at 350° in a regular oven)
