Coconut Pineapple Pie

  My daughter, Amy offered to bake this pie for me. Things have been busy for me and this was one of the ways for her to help. Also, she likes to bake and since it had pineapple in it, was wanting to try it. They are great pineapple eaters at her house.
  The pie from the Southern Living Our Best Recipes cookbook, is a chess type and like most chess pies quite rich. Cut it in small pieces to cut down on the calories and enjoy.
